Fashion As Design.

What We Wear - How We Wear It - Why We Wear It - What It Means - How It's Made.

These five simple questions are more important now than they ever have been before. Life has become a system of mass-identification rituals. Group-likes, viral-trends, social-shames - whatever. We have flooded the internet with our 'individual expressions.' Back in the day, it used to be important to watch the the cool folks start new trends INDIVIDUALLY. Now we watch and see who the 'early adopters' are and who's 'dressing like so & so' before everyone else, eventually, does, too.

Sounds, boring, to me.

So let's think. Who are you? What do you want to tell the world? How are you able to do that? Here's two quick examples:

Eco-conscious young folks can all be seen wearing the same brands, for the same reasons (functional, fashionable, trendy) - recycled, sustainable manufacturers etc. Denim-Dudes (and Dudettes) hunt out those 19.5oz chore jeans and brass chain-wallets - functional, fashionable, trendy - made in USA, natural materials, long lasting product etc.

Just a little lo-fi thought food for you all.

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

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.

Greg Brady X Stanley Desantis

Greg Brady X Stanley Desantis
Everybody knows Barry Williams, who played Greg Brady in The Brady Bunch. You see a simple Greg Brady promo tee that's been nicely autographed and dedicated to 'Jasmine,' by Mr. Williams himself. Do you know who made this tee? Enter Mr. Stanley DeSantis - actor, pop culture merchant and soap dealer. Mr. Desantis's filmography includes major films like The Aviator and television staples like My So Called Life. However, in the vintage world, DeSantis t-shirts are highly coveted. DeSantis tees included color blocked pseudo-Warholian graphics of John F. Kennedy, Beavis and Butthead cartoons, All-Over-Print Wizard of Oz imagery and simple Greg Brady's as seen above. You're in for a surprise if you're able to find a DeSantis shirt. Flip the size tag over for key life lessons and rules for teenage success. Continue reading
