    This is a very interesting (under the radar) brand out of L.A. - it's very RRL-feeling in the full Americana sort of way

    I bought one of their distressed bandana scarves (scroll down and see pics below) to wear with my vintage leather cafe racer jackets and the person behind the brand, Olivier Grasset, did an outstanding job making a great one for me (they retail for $85 but less if sold direct)

    these are vintage looking (sun distressed) bandanas that he ages uses his own special process and then puts them out in the SoCal sun to fade further and the result is very unique

    Dr Collectors is also making work pants, bags, and other thing sin addition to the bandana scarves. It is a brand worth following, and I'm going to send him the link to this thread so that maybe he can post new product updates and develop a dialogue with potential SF customers

    good stuff!

    this is the one that Olivier made for me.....he found a vintage Jack Daniels bandana and added it to the scarf to arrive at this (click image to enlarge and see detail)

    This thread got little love, didn't it?

    That was a fun blog to look through. I wish the dungarees weren't painter pants, but maybe they'll do something different next. The dirty black is something like a cross between RRL and Anachone.

    It must be a store; there isn't any online presence other than the blog and this thread.
