Fashion & Water Consumption.

Do you know how much water it takes to make a tee shirt?

713 Gallons.

Do you know how much water is used to make a pair of jeans?

1800 Gallons.

These are insane statistics. Based on simple math, we figure we're saving millions of gallons of water by wearing vintage clothing. For context, an average 5' deep swimming pool is filled with 20k gallons of water.

That's 11 pairs of jeans.

Or 28 tee shirts.

Think about that for a minute. We've been recycling vintage gear for almost 30 years - so this is not trendy for us - this is our way of life. Imagine if we all chipped in a little bit? We sure would do a lot for the environment.

Vintage (real) Sportswear.

Vintage (real) Sportswear.
A fabulous piece of vintage from our warehouse. We truly see it all, all the time. This uniform unbelievably tailored.
There's vintage sportswear and there's vintage Sportswear. A double market you say? There are the jersey collectors and Nascar tee collectors and this-kinda-thing collectors. Collectors. You can't wear this out to dinner or to a movie like you would wear a vintage Banlon or piece of leather. Sure, folks collect Pierre Balmain and Dior or Jaques Fath - but tend to do so with less fervor than those who collect, the sports, stuff. Don't know those names? There's your homework. I was recently educated on the esoterica concerning vintage jerseys. For example there are game jerseys - like have seen game play which have value for aforementioned exposure. There are company specific reissues that command a buck or two and there are even Hall of Fame time-issued pieces that appeal to hyper-specific dedicated fans. Seems like a lot to keep track of, but we're all guilty of time consumption spent on why this piece or that is worth our time. So who would want this piece from our warehouse? It's handmade, old, and that stitch-embroidered patch is impressive (seriously). Long history made short is the original cheer team for the (then brand new in early 1960's) Minnesota Vikings were the Parkettes and this doesn't fit any uniform we could find for that period. However, the fabric says otherwise. So did somebody make this as an homage? A fantastically well-made costume? Or something else? I guess this appeals to a lot of interests - textile and Americana collectors included. Whatever it does for you, we agree, this is a serious piece of sports history and the fashion connection throughout the years is undeniably important as reflections of times, attitudes and support for good times and positive vibes.

The Vintage Quiz.

The Vintage Buyers and Sellers Quiz. I am a very lucky person. I am often asked H.D.Y.G.T.F.A.J.? (or, How Did You Get That Awesome F****g Job?) There are many perks to dealing in the vintage world aside from the clothing and the experiences. There are also countless people I meet and get to know personally. We discuss what’s cool and what’s not in whatever corner of the world they may live. I learn interesting bits of this and that - almost always things I would never expect from even less likely suspects. Vintage dealers are a global network of treasure hunters. Vintage buyers are another sort of category, both good and, well, kind of just as good, sometimes. If you’re a seller, then this quiz is for you as a sort of customer to seller training exercise. I will chuckle to myself, assuming that you’re doing the same while reading this. So you want to buy some vintage clothing? No problem! Here’s a short pop quiz on what ‘vintage’ clothing actually means. 1.Every Pair of 1980’s Denim Will Fit Me. A. True. B. False. C. Sometimes with a coat hanger. D. They will if you take them to a tailor. 2. Do you have any 1970’s Arena Rock Tour Tees For Five Bucks Each In Bulk? A. Yes. B. No. C. OH! Finally someone is going to buy these! D. Seriously? 3. I Can’t Take Any Pieces That Have Any Marks Or Wear. And They Must Be All 1960’s Party Pieces. Is that cool? A. Sure! Got Tons In The Back. B. No. C. Sounds like a lame party. D. No. 4. Your Price Tag Says $100. Would You Take $15? I Can Pay With Cash. A. Sorry, We Only Take Bitcoin. B. You Mean Like, Real-Money-Type-Cash? C. Yes, Thank You! D. The Price Tag Says $100. 5.
