Style Spotlight - Vintage Menswear
Seasons greetings! I hope you are having a lovely Christmas period and managing to get some time off to do whatever makes you happy. As you know, we have so many amazing vintage dresses and glamorous vintage for women, but did you know that we also sell a fantastic range of vintage for men? Whether you are shopping for yourself or someone else, vintage menswear is always a great option. Like with all vintage clothing, you will find such well made and timelessly stylish pieces as well as the chance to tap into some trends or sub-cultures from times gone by. And we don't just stop at vintage clothing for men, we also have some great vintage accessories including mens vintage hats, mens vintage scarves, mens vintage shoes and more.
I have rounded up some of my current favourites from our extensive range of vintage menswear to bring you this week's Style Spotlight. As always, these items are unique so whilst they are available at the time of posting this blog; it's best to grab your favourites quickly before someone else does!
MEN'S VINTAGE COATS & JACKETS
This is the epitome of gentleman’s vintage style. Heavyweight double breasted wool overcoat made by Guards - leaders in men’s wear since 1843. The pure wool is a grey tone with classic plaid/check in tan brown and blue. Large collar and two front pockets. Double breasted buttons in black leather and smaller matching buttons at each cuff. Fully lined. This is excellently crafted and exquisite quality. Complete with matching belt. In very good vintage condition.
We love this bright aqua/turquoise colour-way with contrasting panels of silvery grey. Glossy finish in a sporty polyester fabric with a little stretch. Full zip front with chunky silver zipper and shallow funnel neck. Two side pockets and ribbed cuffs and hem. In very good vintage condition.
We love this desert 3 colour camouflage jacket made by Kellwood Co. Beige, khaki and brown camo print in sturdy fabric with US Air Force logo to the front and eagle emblems to the collar. Full button front and classic multi pocket style with button cuffs. Non stretch and in very good vintage condition.
MEN'S VINTAGE 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.
Smart vintage trousers from the 1970s, in classic black corduroy. Straight leg style with hook and zip fly fastening. Two side pockets and one buttoned back pocket plus belt loops. Non stretch and in very good vintage condition.
MEN'S VINTAGE TOPS
Unusual and super cool vintage jumper from Pringle's 1980s collaboration with golfing legend Nick Faldo. Light grey and blue multi patterned style with crew neck and long sleeves. Pure New Wool with natural stretch and Pringle logo to the chest. Small hole in collar but generally in good vintage condition.
Super groovy 1970s shirt straight from a vintage prom! Pale lilac colour in Bri-Nylon, made in Northern Ireland by Lloyd Menswear London. Formal style with cuffing cuffs and curved hem. Full button front with neat rows of ruffles and collar. In very good vintage condition.
We love this cool vintage cardigan from 1970s St Michael. Deep military green ribbed knit fitted cardigan with a real suede leather trim. Collared with a full zip front. Slight stretch and in very good vintage condition.
MEN'S VINTAGE ACCESSORIES
Great little vintage men’s grooming kit from the late 1950s/early 60s. Tan leather case which contains an orange Bakelite frame with 5 item slots. There is a talc canister, a shaving brush in a canister, a clothes/shoe brush and a glass bottle for cologne etc. There seems to be one item missing but it’s still a great set and would make an exceptional vintage gift. Inner case is stamped with Made in England Patent No 23286/44. In very good vintage condition.
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.
This fantastic doctors style bag is large with multiple pockets, in a rich brown leather. Two push locks to open and close, with one large zipped compartment, one small zipped compartments and two open compartments inside. Large outer zipped compartment opens to reveal 3 smaller zipped pockets, unzipped pockets and pen holders. This has been well used and there is general wear and tear but this simply adds to the character and appeal. In very good vintage condition. Measures approx 17" x 12" x 6"
