The Breakers Hotel.

The Breakers Hotel.
Vintage Breakers Employee Cabana Tees.
Henry Flagler opened The Breakers Hotel to support his newly constructed Florida East Coast Railway. In 1896 it was known as the Palm Beach Inn. Guests flocked and soon began requesting rooms with views "over the breakers (waves)" and thus, was renamed The Breakers Hotel in 1901. Rooms were $4 a night and included 3 meals a day. Presidents, dignitaries, royalty and those seeking a glimpse into that world are regular guests. Today the Breakers is one of the worlds top luxury hotels. Accommodations start well into the thousands of dollars per night. Above are three cabana-tees from the 1970's/80's. Cocktail girls and bartenders would be seen wearing these ringers. A nice piece of Palm Beach History. Continue reading

The Vintage Proposition.

The Vintage Proposition. (Or the modern concept value proposition) Vintage gear is getting expensive! Come on! I guess vintage threads have always been sorta expensive if you’re getting down with serious pieces. Rock tees, leather jackets, a great pair of boots - they’ll all set you back. Which is where this weeks value idea comes to play. The question of how often you’ll wear something is an easy reality - and a useful decision making tool, too. Lets say a pair of vintage jeans sets you back fifty bucks. You’ll probably wear those jeans every day for at least a year. That’s 50/365. By the math that’s a pretty cheap investment in quality and happiness. Now, a vintage rock tee may set you back two hundred bucks. And you’re likely to wear it maybe once a week. That’s 200/52. Considerably higher than those vintage Levi’s you swiped from our shop. Guess it’s really just all in the math and down to what your budget can handle. Unless there’s something so rare, so amazing and so cool that you’ll chance not paying the rent on time to have. And well, when that happens, you just gotta buy it. Continue reading

The Ringer.

The Ringer.

The 70's. The ME Decade. Women's Rights. Civil Rights. Cultural Movements. Fashion Movements. Slogan tees became so popular that you could literally wear whatever you wanted on your sleeve (or chest, or back). These styles are highly collected - not really for their financial value - but more so for the emotions these things invoke. Call 'em t-shirt time-machines. Grab your roller-skates and feather that hair....

The Ringer Tee. You wore them. I wore them. Everyone wore them.
