These pop up once in a while. I've seen them before. I think they're so great, I always try to remember to put them in the roundup when I see them. So don't despair.
Do you recommend anything in particular when you're working with them?
Thanks! I've been scouring vintage shows, eBay, Etsy and fabric shops for like a year and a half to put together this collection. Really proud of what I found.
I posted about twenty new PTO squares in our Etsy shop today. They're all made from vintage rayon from the 1940s (and in a few cases 1950s). Got a few more coming, too.
I saw that Chipp on the shelf and passed on it - not my size and it's the middle of summer in Los Angeles, where I've never needed an overcoat. Very cool piece, though.
Rave cleaned up a bunch of Hermes scarves for my mom that she bought from an estate. Took a while, but they did an amazing job. She ended up a thousand bucks or so richer.
A tweed, checked, ticket-pocketed, hacking pocketed, metal-buttoned orphan?Pretty sure.
As promised, 50s J. Press (crossposted on PTO).
I just posted at PTO this awesome J. Press coat from the fifties I thrifted over the weekend.
Bought an amazing and bulletproof tweed jacket from J. Press yesterday. MTM, dated 1953. Haven't shot any pics yet, but I'll try to share them here.
