    Picked up a V-Room hoodie in a green and gray marled fabric. The lining of the hood is a black and white check. Ridiculously soft and comfortable. I love it but for some reason the drawstrings are way too long.

    The "vintage" element of Gitman Vintage is that each season they go into their fabric archives and select a year (for SS11 they chose 1986) and recreate those fabrics for the seasonal collection. You can read about it on their website.

    I think you are inferring vintage to mean "heritage workwear" or something along those lines, which is simply not the case and no one is claiming or marketing it to be so. The model with the ridiculous moustache is contexts choice, not Gitmans, they likely have no say in this.


    Regardless of what the "vintage" label is supposed to mean, I cannot honestly believe they chose that term purely for the sake of accuracy while ignoring current trends and values. "Vintage" has been a popular term for a while now and "heritage" certainly evokes a similar emotional response.

    I only posted Context's pictures because they appear to be an absurd attempt to evoke a sense of the past. Other stores have been doing the same thing for a while now.

    Dark olive lambskin Harrington

    It's an old order, took a while to make and then there was a mistake due to a communication glitch so jacket went back to TOJ and they made this one instead. I don't know if they take Harrington orders now but this one has been in backlog for a while.

    This would be infinitely more interesting (cept robo-keyboard).
