Calling all vintage Courrèges collectors, this bright orange, double-breasted pea coat is currently up for auction on eBay. I love this timeless cut, superb structure and Peter Pan collar. Current bid $55. Click on the image to see the full listing. And to find out more about the often copied designer, see my earlier post about André Courrèges here.

Rainy Days and Sundays

with one comment

It’s raining here in Los Angeles today so I’m sipping coffee and browsing vintage spy coats on eBay. I already have two amazing vintage trench coats. And when I say two, I mean four of course. Still, just because I’m on a diet doesn’t mean I can’t see the dessert cart.

Today I found a vintage Lanvin spy coat in a traditional khaki. Love the tortoise-like buckles on the cuffs. The current bid on eBay is only $29.99, which is a great price for vintage Lanvin. Click on the images below to see the listing.

Vintage Italian Knitwear

leave a comment »

Some of the best vintage knitwear came from Italy in the 1960s and 1970s, thanks to the arrival of Italy’s ready-to-wear industry. Italian fashion looked much different than Parisian haute couture at the time – it was cleaner, with impeccable construction and bold colors.

The density of vintage knitwear lends itself well to the cooler months. Below we have assembled a colorful variety of vintage knitwear (not all from Italy, but most), as seen on eBay and etsy this week. Click on each image to see the full listing.

Vintage Essentials for Men

with 3 comments

When you combine a bad ass vintage leather jacket with the intoxicating scent of aloofness, it’s like pouring pheromones all over your body. But first, you need to find the right jacket. Therein lies the dilemma. Scoping vintage clothing requires patience and focus. The kind that comes with dos equis chromosomes. But fear not my comrades, for I am here to help you.

There are a number of ways you can go with a vintage leather jacket. Café racer, Brando, bomber, Fight Club, safari, Members Only, blazer, Donnie Brasco, pimp. I tend to prefer the belted spy or military styles. However, that length can be difficult to pull off for some. Consider what length best fits your body type. Resist the urge to buy a roomy jacket. Fit is everything. A guy in a slouchy or boxy leather jacket just looks awkward. Buying online is tricky, so know your measurements. You can also measure a jacket you currently own (one that fits well) and use that as a guide. I like honey, cognac or caramel browns over black.
