We shipped Daniel the ultimate in plain flannel shirts but made up for it, I hope, with a one-of-a-kind hat and some Axl Rose. Read about the full contents by clicking the link below.
Thanks for subscribing to Comma, the vintage menswear subscription service! Here’s what you get:
LL Bean Chamois Flannel: This is a pretty straightforward shirt: Warm. Sturdy. Light Blue. I get a kick out of the blue buttons. I can’t decide if they’re terrible or perfect. I hope you feel positively, if in an ironic way.
Pearl Snap Western Shirt: I’m not familiar with the brand, but my favorite part here is the tag. For one, “Rancher & Westernwear” is the least creative name for a brand. And the graphic of a cowboy jumping a fence I find equally straightforward. Note that the bottom button features a repair. Looks like the grommet tore through the fabric, but the hole was hand-patched. A pretty cool relic of wear, but I understand if this may be disappointing. Let me know.
Hickory Nuts Hat: This is a New Era Trucker hat. The script on the tag is a favorite typeface of mine, and the words on top—just slightly misaligned, possibly suggestive but also literally a kind of tree nut—and its bright orange color create a pretty compelling piece. Might be worth knowing that I found it within 50 miles of Hickory, North Carolina.
Guns & Roses Cassette: I know that this isn’t vinyl. Or 80s or 90s punk. But I also know it’s one of those albums that captures a moment and a sound like few others, and that listening to it on cassette captures it all even better. I hope that you find it novel enough to appreciate. (To be fair, I cannot test all cassettes. Hope it works!)
