It’s not often we ship something of this quality and rarity here at Comma Vintage. But sometimes we do, and Daniel was lucky enough to get a box with a Cowichan sweater inside. Oh and a t-shirt with an Otter on it. Read on to see more photos and read the letter. Continue reading
Why should you wear vintage clothing? Here’s a few reasons.
Making the leap from new clothing to vintage can be a bit tough for some people. “What if it smells!” they say, or “I’ll look silly!”
Thankfully, washing machines and style tips exist. But if you’re looking for motivation, we here at Comma Vintage think there’s a lot more to it.
1. Vintage clothing prevents human exploitation
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
It’s fun to hunt for t-shirts with a known connection to some element of history or pop culture. It’s more fun, turns out, to find the t-shirt first and the connection months later. Continue reading
We ship a fair number heavyweight US-made flannels here at Comma vintage. Rarely, though, do we ever find one in unworn condition. Thankfully for Colt, who received his subscription as a gift from his wife, we’ve. got one right here. Check out that Cone Mills tag! Read the full letter and see more photos below. Continue reading
We had to ship this admittedly muted Vintage Gitman Brothers Shirt to ofset the brightness of the hat and t-shirt. Frankly, it does very little to do that, though. Look at that t-shirt! And that hat! You could look at it even if it were a mile away, a lighthouse of certain vintage guiding you safely away from the boring folks out there to someone who really knows the score: Love-93. More photos and the letter after jump. Continue reading
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
This guide is to help you find and buy vintage t-shirts at a reasonable price and for regular wear. If you’re thinking about adding vintage t-shirts to your wardrobe or want to better appreciate the ones you already have, read on.
When 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
I’m a sucker for a striped tee shirt, probably because it’s nothing I would ever buy new. Who walks into J. Crew and says, “Yes. These stripes in these colors are exactly what I want today.” Not me, though we can discuss the merits of j’Crew another time. What matters now is that Jack received some awesome color in the mail. Take a look at that plaid, for example! And the blue of that shirt. Good golly. Spring is here. Continue reading
