I don’t go out drinking often (if at all), but when I do, it’s with people who like vintage fashion.
Warning: LONG ASS BLOG POST
It’s not everyday that a film takes place in the 1930’s, but when there is, we’ve definitely gotta talk about the fashion!
Extra Long Blog Post!
One of the questions I get from guys who have come across my style is “why do you like vintage”? Well the truth of the matter is, I don’t always like to wear vintage. There are a few things that modern manufacturers get right that I enjoy (extremely soft tailoring is one). If I had the money, I could possibly have an entire bespoke wardrobe. However there’s one main reason why I always return to vintage and that’s due to the details that they just don’t do anymore.
It seems that most of the vintage posts on this blog seem to revolve around backyard sales and Dapper Day and I really aim to change that. There’s an entire community that revolves around vintage and its pretty fun to be apart of! This article covers the style at Paper Moon Vintage (the first vintage store I ever went to) and their Tiki-Hawaiian party!
One word, three syllables: tattersall. It’s the perfect odd vest to add to your wardrobe if you want to give yourself a vintage pop! Leave those plain tweed waistcoats at home; this is how you do it.
The guys and I are no stranger to vintage clothing. Whether it’s true vintage suits or even putting together something “vintage casual”, we definitely love vintage. While the former has a very niche following (the vintage community as I affectionately call it), the latter is huge in the mainstream society. With loop collar shirts, cool sweaters, and straight/wide selvedge denim, this special breed of vintage enthusiast is typically what most people tend to go for when they want a “vintage look”. There isn’t a huge tradeshow like Pitti Uomo, Inspiration LA is the event to go to if you like that look. It’s certainly a great place to go to see some of the coolest vintage pieces (that still exist) as well as some of the best dressed guys in the world that aren’t in suits.
This weekend I was able to go to the 2015 Vintage Fashion Expo in Downtown Los Angeles. Vintage fashion is a personal hobby of mine. While I do love wearing modern clothes, there is something about the cut and patterns of the 1920s-1950’s that interest me. So this weekend, I went to the Expo wearing one of my favourite and most unique vintage pieces. I was also able to snap a few shots of people’s fashion that I enjoyed!
