Brad’s Box: A Made in USA Leather G1 Bomber Jacket

We talk about leather jackets a bit more often than we ship them. But guess what? Sometimes we walk the talk. Take this one, for example: It’s a William Barry G1 Shearling Bomber Jacket.

Made in the USA and with all the right details, the style of Talon zipper here helps us date this to the 70s. It also helps that my good friend John wore the same jacket for years; he got it from his father, who’d had it since then.

We shipped this one off to Brad in New York. Read the full letter and see more photos below.

Jeremy’s Box: Ralph Macchio’s Jacket from “The Outsiders”

We love to connect clothing with popular culture, so I’m surprised it took so long for us to reference The Outsiders, the 1983 Francis Ford Coppola-directed launch pad for Rob Lowe, Tom Cruise, Emilio Esteves, Matt Dillon, and Patrick Swayze.

It also stars Ralph Macchio, who throughout the film wheres the same jacket we just shipped to our long-time subscriber Jeremy.

Matt’s Box: Made in USA Converse All Stars and a Five Brother Flannel

 

We rarely ship sneakers here at Comma Vintage. That’s because we want to stick to our guns and only ship true vintage. As much we think that the Converse All Star is timeless, we aren’t shipping  used ones from 2014.

True vintage ones are hard to come by, and the differences are subtle: The sole is heavier, and the toe cap is smaller. The tell-tale sign, though, is that they’re made in the USA. Pictured above is the first pair of US-made Converse All Stars that we ever shipped. Matt asked for Chucks in particular, and we hope he’s excited to get a pair. And he got this great flannel, too.

Giovanni’s Vintage Eastland Camp Mocs and Sanforized Frostproof Plaid

 

Sometimes we get to ship two awesome items together because one just might not be enough. Take for example this vintage sanforized flannel shirt and US-made Eastland camp mocs. And what’s that peeking out from the corner? Why it’s a selvage bandana! Thank goodness for selvage bandanas, and for Jamie Bannon, who taught be how to take better photos. Read the letter below.

Joseph’s Box o’ the American West: Vintage Pendleton flannel, corduroy hat, and a t-shirt.

Joe let us know that he has a thing for the Rocky Mountains. Technically, Pendleton, Oregon, is a bit to the west of that range, but the effort is there. Joseph did request no hats with flat brims, but we’re hoping he can take care of this one with a coffee mug.  Read the full letter below. Continue reading
