Happy new year everyone! 

Nice kids collection, those trainers are pretty neat.

A great idea Flash! For me it´s all about vintage overcoats btw.

@Flash - Great thread idea. Always nice to see a bit of old to compliment the new. I will endeavour to add my humble pieces when l get time .

@Sympathy-For-The-Denim - your vintage overcoat from waywt absolutely rocks...

@Flash - great idea...

... perennial problem: when does vintage begin for you / this thread? 

Not gonna force my opinion on anyone mate , if you( whoever ) deems the piece vintage then go ahead ....... but the first user to post some kappa snap bottoms should be forever shunned by the community

Well l think vintage is (or at least was) an item more than 20 years old, so that basically means last century stuff l'm guessing?

Time to post those vintage Ugg boots!

just checking parameters for all forum sakes... just checking for all y'all not setting 1950s as the starting point...

but yes: juicy couture velour track is also vintage... as our parents and grandparent will tell you; it is strange when the yoof of today wear the clothes of yr own yoof and present it as vintage... so dressing as Xander from Buffy is my possible new vintage aim... [but I think the sandlot-core talk has been dun already...]

just checking...

Ha... a few of my students (the hip, 15-y.o. retro ones) used to swear I was Giles. Now that I'm older than I ever seriously thought I was going to be, I don't mind that.

That really is a lovely type 1 , looks to be a pretty small size ? 34-36 ? 

Anyone into 80's/90's Nike trainers ? I'd love to see some posted

@Flash good shout on starting the thread... some interesting looking items above too

If vintage is 20+ years then that brings in some of the earlier repros too e.g. early LVC, Canes etc

Would be interested in where those in the UK hunt for vintage treasures beyond the more well known places

it probably goes back to watching my grandfather starch his wranglers each morning before working the farm. 
these are old wranglers. I don’t think they’re bluebell

... pretty much all of these items have come from digging around in goodwill outlet “bins” and small town garage sales... 
 

nice: UK charity/thrift stores are pretty rinsed out for last few years; good to know gems can still be found where you are...

looks like a great jacket in good condition if it is from the 40s - does anyone else know when the m-1943 stopped being used / produced?

^ they look good! Glad to know I am a bad sartorial influence...

true overall inspiration comes from this 1915 pic that @buler put up in the denimbro workwear picture thread: double/apron overalls and higher trousers than even god imagined...

I’d have to dig it out of storage and measure it, but 34 iirc. Not sure what happened to the patch but I have a story that will make some of you shed a tear..

My grand parents handed down some very old clothing to me about a decade ago. This jacket and some 501s were the most notable. I asked them to let me know if anything else were to turn up and my grandmother said something along the lines of

“we threw most of it out/donated it. they were stained or had holes in them, and the leather patches cracked in half when we touched them. we washed them before donating them and they looked worse after. you wouldn’t have wanted them”

I bring it up to them here and there to get more clues. All I have found out is the clothes that were tossed out were older than that jacket (as they were their parents), some were jeans, jean jackets, and “formal wear” (church attire)

Sorry for the lengthy reply gents

Shame @scooby but at least you have the jeans and jacket, with a family attachment and an interesting (if somewhat sad and brief) story of some much older, possibly even cooler stuff. Cheers for sharing.

Can't believe we've made it all these years without a general vintage thread...Thanks for thinking of this @Flash, I'll have to dig some stuff out for photos...

Great thread idea @Flash

I do not have much vintage at all, but I think this is kind of unique so I thought I would share it. It's an old Swedish M-59 jacket from what I think is the 60s or 70s, but I could be wrong. It was modified by a defunct store in England.

i have a completely deadstock US army desert night camo fishtail parka from the gulf war, complete with the button-in quilted liner. you can get them pretty easily online, but they're usually worn and/or missing the liner. i love it, even if the medium is huge on my 6'1/80kg frame. supreme did a version with a massive and obnoxious 'riot' logo on the back a few years ago.

Lots of folks have some nice military pieces so it would be great to see them

We don't need any 90's 501's with that deliberately ironed central crease down each leg :laugh:

I promise, no urban cowboy creased 501’s...or 517’s, from the 90’s or 80’s (added bonus)

I’ll see what I can do, does anyone have a clue, when denim jeans were first being creased? When did the whole- creasing of pants even start? I’ve never looked into it.
