Jason’s Mystery Wool Flannel and More

Vintage Wool Flannel, Selvage Bandana

I have a soft spot for connecting with my subscribers’ location. When Jason told me he’s taken up fly-fishing and lives in Philadelphia, this shirt was only ever going to him. As for the flannel: It’s one of the nicest pieces I’ve found this year. Jason recently upgraded from a quarterly to annual subscription, and I’m glad to send it his way. Continue reading

John’s Vintage Alpha Industries MA-1 Bomber Jacket and More

Vintage Alpha Industries MA-1 BomberWhen John signed up, he specifically requested a vintage bomber jacket. To be sure, that can mean a lot of different styles. The A-2, for example, is usually made of leather, features a point collar, and two large front pockets. The MA-1, pictured here, was developed during the space age: It’s nylon, purely functional, and even reversible. He had another goodie too.  Continue reading

Alan’s Levi’s Silver Tab (Not Silvertab) Jeans & Sports Illustrated Crewneck

Levi's silvertab jeans and Sports Illustrated crewneck

Levi’s Silvertab is one of those many, many Levi’s sub-brands that had a moment and then faded away. I don’t anticipate LVC ever bringing it back.

Here’s what I wrote to the subscriber:  Continue reading

Brian’s Box: Bass Dirty Bucks, LL Bean OCBD, and More

Vintage Bass Dirty Bucks, LL Bean OCBD, and More

I should really work on folding shirts more elegantly. But, to be pedantic, nothing about a 60-40 LL Bean OCBD is elegant, it’s about looking refined yet casual, you know? It’s like having a 35 year old Jeep Wagoneer but not telling anyone you paid $12,000 in refurbishment, which I guess is what the entirety of this box is. I just want everyone to know that you could buy 300 months of Comma Vintage for the same price as a your Wagoneer refurbishments. It’s an easy choice.  Continue reading

Adam’s Box: Vintage golf jacket, A hoagie hat, and more.

Vintage Trucker Hat, Vintage Golf Jacket

The Dream Team! The Dream Sandwich! The Dream Band! I have a soft spot for 1984, which to me is the perfect cassette album. It’s maybe 30 minutes of music, includes “Jump,” “Panama,” and “Hot For Teacher,” and the title track is just ambient noise. (I forgot to write all of this in the letter.) I also forgot to mention that rad tie clip on the collar of the jacket. I mentioned everything else below. Continue reading
