a good 50% of my wardrobe is vintage (for me *vintage* only applies between late 40s-early 60s, anything after that is anathema) mostly 50s stuff, with a good handful of early 60s...sold off the few 40s pieces i had (cable knits, hollywood jackets etc) my latest score on ebay (which cost a good $$$
) is a shortsleeve pink 50s silk rayon gabardine shirt with UFOs all over it...this is actually something i have been searching for that i *finally* found in my size
i have a few vintage 60s mod cut suits, 50s gabardine jackets and tons of 50s gabardine shirts and 60s acrylic/orlon knits for my body frame, the vintage stuff fits perfectly like it was tailor made. the shirts are slimfitting and there is a ton of good gear for a size Med 40" chest. plus the fabrics were awesome back then, vintage gabardines drape in a way that very few modern fabrics do without paying top dollar.
