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

Ryan’s Box: Vintage Levi’s 505-0217XX and a chunky ragg sweater!

Chunky Sweater with vintage Levi's 501s

We always get excited when we’re able to match a subscribers expectations. Ryan, for example, asked for light wash denim and chunky sweaters to get him through the San Francisco spring. We’re glad that we had these 1980s 505-0217 XX in stock to go with a snowflake pattern sweater in otherwise un-dyed wool. Sadly, the jeans were a bit too small. But hey, we work with that.
