Kestrin and Jonathan, a fashionable and multi-talented couple here on the L.A. scene, recently made a baby, as well as a feature-length film. I’m not sure in which order, as baby and film are both currently in post-production, but at some point in the process there was a baby shower/baby naming competition with brackets and everything, and it was on that evening that the couple gifted me with a book called Fashionable Clothing from the Sears Catalogs. Never before has friendship rang so harmoniously, as if they periscoped down into my true inner being and retrieved a polyester pants suit.
The aforementioned book served as our inspiration this week, as we scrubbed etsy and eBay clean of vintage fashions from the near-extinct Sears chain of department stores. Hell, we even found stuff for men too. Click on each image below to see the individual listing.

When Sir Richard Branson made his inaugural tourist space flight in 2010, he wore a specially-made Belstaff jacket. Founded in England in 1924, Belstaff is famed for high-performance jackets, worn by motorcyclists and pilots. One of my favorites is Belstaff’s “Sammy Miller” biker jacket, named after the 1950s motorcycle legend. At $1085, the price tag is painful, but this is one of those jackets you will wear until death do you part, most likely diving out of an airplane or in a fiery motorcycle crash.
