Whether you are shopping for yourself or a special someone, My Vintage has lots of vintage clothing for men from mens vintage jackets to mens vintage shirts and mens vintage trousers to mens vintage hats. This week I thought I would take the opportunity to walk you through some of my current favourites in our vintage menswear department so let's go and explore!
MENS VINTAGE JACKETS & COATS
This is a great deadstock vintage piece - originally made in the 1980s but never worn. Deep blue darkwash denim with classic contrast golden stitching. Two large front buttoned chest pockets and two lower front pockets. Full button front with round brass buttons. Fantastic classic vintage denim jacket. In very good unworn condition.
This is a real vintage gem, a 1960s example of a mens outer jacket made by Grenfell. Originally started in 1923 the Grenfell brand evolved out of the development of its namesake ‘wonder-fabric’, created specifically to meet the outerwear needs of British pioneer, philanthropist and missionary doctor, Sir Wilfred Grenfell. In 1958, Grenfell was awarded a Royal Warrant for supplying their clothing to the Royal household. This camel/beige coloured jacket has the Royal Warrant label as well as the original Grenfell label and one for Ridleys where it would have been originally sold. It is a simple design with four front buttons and two front pockets. Lined in a fabulous green striped silky fabric. In very good condition.
Vintage military overcoat/blazer/jacket in black wool. RNXS badges to each upper arm. Classic double breasted style with front pockets and black buttons embossed with anchors. Labels states the maker as Briggs, Jones & Gibson Ltd and Size 182/108/92. Original Royal Navy issue and in very good vintage condition.
Original vintage Ben Sherman jacket from the nineties, made from a high quality, genuine leather in black. Longline oversize jacket, this measures as a large but the label is Small. Simple and classic pea coat shape with collar and button down front (bottom button broken in half). Slightly cushioned polyester lining. Two front pockets. An excellent piece of designer vintage in very good vintage condition.
Casual vintage men's bomber jacket in beige with deep brown trim. Classic bomber style with ribbed cotton collar, cuffs and hem. Full zip front with beige and brown stripy brushed cotton lining. Two side pockets. In very good vintage condition.
MENS VINTAGE SHIRTS
We absolutely love this funky western shirt from Doolittle Fashions of Wales. Classic deep navy blue with panels of horse and horse shoe print fabric edged with white piping. Full button front with pearlised popper buttons and matching white piping. Deep cuffs with three matching buttons and white piping. Non stretch cotton blend fabric (no fabric label present) In very good vintage condition.
Fantastic mens shirt with a vintage 1970s vibe. Tan brown in a suede-like texture with a fade out check pattern. Button down collar and full button front. Long sleeves with button cuffs and chest pocket. Non stretch fabric and curved hem. Label is size large but measure as a XXL. In very good vintage condition.
This classic casual shirt from Gabicci is made from modal fabric which feels like such a soft rich silk with a slight two tone sheen. Short sleeves and full button front with one chest pocket with embroidered G logo. An excellent quality piece from a respected vintage label. In very good vintage condition.
Funky checked western shirt in multi tones of blue, grey, yellow and red. Lightweight non stretch poly cotton fabric. Full button front with pearlised buttons. Curved hem and in very good vintage condition.
An iconic 70s men's shirt in fabulous bright yellow. Made by Jagger, this classic shirt has a dagger collar and two small, decorative chest pockets. Full button front and button cuffs. Made from a non stretch polyester and cotton blend. In very good vintage condition.
MENS VINTAGE JEANS & TROUSERS
A rare pair of vintage Levi jeans from pre 1971 when LEVIS changes to Levis, these have the original 'big E' on the red label. Classic five pocket style jeans. The hems have been let down and thinly turned up. There are two very neat repair patches in a darker denim, these were the days before ripped jeans were fashionable! So could be removed. Generally in very good vintage condition.
Super cool pair of vintage 70s Farah slacks in a sage green tone. Straight leg with side pockets, belt loops and zip and hook fly fastening. Non stretch fabric. These have been taken up to their current leg length of 29" but could be let down again to achieve another 2". Front and back centre seams. In very good vintage condition.
Classic pair of Levi 559 jeans in relaxed fit straight leg. Deep blue distressed denim in 5 pocket style with golden contrast stitching. Label size is 40w 32L, the waist actually measures 42”. In very good vintage condition.
Another great find from the iconic Dunn & Co. Mens vintage suit trousers in a light soft beige fabric. Straight leg with front crease, zip and hook fastening and belt loops. Light and comfortable with retro mustard colour lining pieces. Non stretch. Label states dry clean only. In very good vintage condition.
MENS VINTAGE ACCESSORIES
Country gent hat from the iconic Greenwood's menswear. Trilby style in a deep green tweed pattern with self fabric trim and small feathered detail. Size label is 7/57/M. Inner leather rim measuring approx 21" circumference. Lining is coming away a little and has some marks and wear. Otherwise in very good vintage condition.
Vintage cigarette case from the collectable Emu brand. Made from Sylva chrome, stamped on the inside. Classic style case with stretchy metal bands to hold the cigarettes in place. A great accessory for a vintage lover. Measures approx 4.5" x 3.5". In very good vintage condition.
Grooming kits are such great vintage treasures and also make great gifts. This one has a black leather case with a silver zip fastening and contains 9 male grooming accessories. Comprises clothes brush, talc shaker, shaving razor, toothbrush holder, comb, nail file, shoehorn, mirror and soap dish with original Lifebuoy soap inside (which smells lovely too!) Glass, stainless steel and stainless effect plastic. Outer case measures approx 8" x 5" x 2". In very good vintage condition.
We love this original Doctor's bag from the 1960s. It has been very well used and has a distressed look but this adds to the character, especially for prop or display purposes. Measures approx 16.5" x 13" x 5” and has a suitcase style lock at the front which is adjustable depending how full the bag is. There is no key attached but this can be closed perfectly just not actually locked. Three compartments inside. A great piece for any vintage collector or enthusiast.
Fabulous adjustable bow tie in sumptuous black velvet. Can be adjusted from 14.5" - 18.5" collar. In very good condition. Perfect for that vintage loving dapper gent and a great affordable gift item.
