It’s pretty crazy to think that I’ve never discussed leather jackets in depth on the blog despite: their connection to vintage casual attire, the fact that wearing one is inherently cool, or that they seemingly go with almost every look you could be into.
A leather jacket really is the ultimate piece of casual Americana and they’re awesome, especially when they’re vintage. Honestly, this article has been a long time coming, so you better enjoy 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, Spencer and I went to Inspiration LA, a huge vintage gathering in Southern California. At the REEF in Downtown Los Angeles, multitudes of dealers selling vintage apparel, reproduction garments, and other crafts come together to present their wares to the public.
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!
This long weekend, the Street x Sprezza Team went to Yosemite National Park. The event was called TriCampus, when our university stays at a camp with two other universities for a weekend of worship, games, and hiking. As expected, we looked our very best even though we knew we were going to be “roughing” it for a while. We also included some of the different outfits of our friends and other people we decided looked particularly good during the trip.
