RB/Dec/08


It was so dark when I left this morning for the Rose Bowl, that I arrived wearing Lesley's Barbour jacket instead of mine (his and hers, 32-34 whatever), I was also the only one there without a headlamp...next time. Finds-

Suspension 'Semi' lamp designed by Torsten Thorup for Fog & Morup, Denmark, 1967. Various danish/Swedish slip cast ceramics 1950's/60's. 1960's Letter jacket by Albion Knitting Mills, CA, powder blue w/ cream leather sleeves. U.S NAVY sweatshirt. Deadstock 100% wool U.S Army medical blanket, Chatham Manufacturing Co, 1944. Two vintage Duluth packs, or Duluth style packs, one is marked Monarch, which is a model Duluth still makes, the other Pathfinder, canvas and leather.

Jealous of those Duluth packs!

think they may actually be 'Monarch Brand' packs, which i can't find much info on, but I see there's one up for auction on ebay right now.
