Unisex Vintage Vests

with 2 comments

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.

Mad Men Style: 1960s Fedoras

with 2 comments

Today on This Week’s Look, we are sipping afternoon mimosas on the lanai and talking men’s hats. Specifically, vintage 1960s stingy brimmed fedoras, trilbys and Homburgs. Think Leonardo DiCaprio in “Catch Me if You Can.”  Sammy and Frank vacationing in Palm Springs.

But enough about Leo, Sammy and Frank, let’s talk about my amazing . He is a hat man. Correction: He is THE hat man. Among other things. And I am, of course, a hat woman, so it is only natural that I should fall in love with a man who can pull off a hat every day of the week. In fact, he is such a natural, I suspect the nurses put a wool felt fedora on him when he was born rather than one of those snuggly newborn skull caps. He is French after all, so one can never be sure what goes on over there. Harold’s hat collection isn’t necessarily staggering. That is to say, his collection will never rival mine in sheer numbers, but it is robust enough to provide a hat for just about any occasion.

Back to my original thought. 1960s trilbys. These short-brimmed hats are destined to become ubiquitous once the new season of Mad Men premieres next year, so if you’re in the market for one, I would do my shopping now before the rise in demand and prices follow. There are some amazing, original 1960s toppers out there right now, and we have selected some of the best for our readers. Click on each image below to see the full listing.
