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

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

Zach’s Box: Nylon Bomber, Selvage Flannel, and more

I’ve been finding a lot of selvage fabric lately, the kind where the maker never thought selvage was meaningful. There’s no “ID” stripe, no exposed selvage, no label on the neck, just a self-edge of the fabric under the placket. Consider this a friendly reminder that vintage selvage fabric exists for no other reason than it was convenient and economical to produce. Remember also, that vintage nylon bomber jackets are incredible.

Oliver’s Box: LL Bean Flannel, Crewneck Sweatshirt, and more.

There’s this odd line of finding something genuinely related to a subscriber’s life versus inventing a relationship that may not exist. I know that Oliver lives in New Jersey, for example, but I have no idea whether he’s actually been to Jersey City, where he’d find the restaurant advertised on this crewneck sweatshirt. It’s a stretch, perhaps. Then again, he did say he could use a new grey crewneck sweatshirt. I think I did better with the hat. Continue reading

Steven’s Box: Vintage Black Levi’s 501s, a Flannel, and More.

Steven mentioned that he’s into punk and classic rock, but he’s also not a teenager. So we shipped him some classics that we hope fit the aesthetic. Unfortunately, the jeans didn’t work out! The tape mentioned in the letter, if you’re curious, is Hot Rocks, a Rolling Stones compilation. And that magazine under it all is from the fifties. It contains the lyrics to dozens of popular-at-the-moment country songs. Continue reading

Kavi’s Box: Vintage LL Bean Cordury, Vintage DeeCee Western, and More.

Kavi let me know that his first box didn’t quite meet his expectations, particularly around fit. We’re a fallible company, and we know that we’re not going to get it right every team. So we really appreciate it when our subscriber’s give us the opportunity to make things better. We gave Kavi a fully-loaded box in his second shipment. Read more about it below:
