Welcome to part two of our two-part expose’ on vintage vests. As you may recall, part one skewed more toward our feminine demographic, with plans to showcase the masculine end of the vest range in part two. However, as we plowed eBay and etsy for vintage men’s vests and waistcoats, we began to see this as more of a unisex offering. Whatever your genitalia, this week we found something for everyone, including fans of “Back to the Future.” Click on each image below to see the seller’s listing.
