Regretting things (part 8)…



One of mister French Cancan's best 30's jacket was sent to New York last month… fabulous grey and tan, two tone deerskin "MID-WESTERN SPORT TOGS" jacket. Second jacket of this famous brand, I sold this year. Of course all the 30's details gave value to this very rare model…chinstrap, pigeon eyes zipper, buttoned vented chest pockets… Bye bye amigo and see you soon…on the moon…maybe ! or maybe on the sun… the rising one…
