70's Sartorial pretty good article on 70's styles over on the Criterion Channel. Years ago I posted some great pics from a friend's time at boarding school in Switzerland back in the early 70's. Wish I'd bookmarked that page.
I love the "street scene" videos from various big cities that are all over Youtube for checking out historical styles. There are some good 70s ones I've watched recently. This video is not strictly 70s style, but London was so far ahead of the curve fashion-wise that a lot of the stuff you see in this video are what the early 70s looked like in the rest of the world.

I don't know where else to put this, but I'm kind of new to IG Live and don't really use it. I saw that RZA battled Premier today on IG Live. Does anyone know if there's a way to check that show if they don't end up posting it on IG? How do you check previous IG Live shows?

Edit: FOUND A LINK!!


if anyone knows how I can check the beginning of this show lmk

You can usually find them searching IGTV, but I haven’t yet.

I forgot. Buzz Rickson is true to size, made faithfully to original product. And Real Mccoy is repros but with Japanese sizing?
Real McCoys is authentically sized to the period. The 30's workwear items will run vintage size of that era (smaller, narrower) . I find the WWII and later run TTS. I own a WWII pea coat and it is TTS as are a pair of Korean War era cargo pants.

Anyone know of any designers that makes suits similar to Tom Ford, Gucci, Edward Sexton? Wide lapels, low gorge, long flared skirt, angular shoulders. Would love to find something that’s not $5k for a jacket.
There's a guy on Twitter that channels some of that 1970s energy, even if not the silhouette. In his videos, he says he gets all his clothes from thrift stores.
