Picture a man in a vintage store, surrounded by retro secretary blouses, rhinestone brooches and clip-on ear rings. It’s a sad image.
One of my goals for Winters Past is to create a mens section: vintage shirts, sunglasses, and boots, plus hankies, lighters, cocktail shakers and vintage car ads. You know, typical retro, gender-specific guy things. Oh, I do have cufflinks- some great ones- but I’d like to have vintage clothes and accessories men can actually wear as an everyday thing.
Yesterday, I started a mens shirt rack, with a nice selection of vintage sport shirts, snap front western shirts and a few funky polos.
I am a vintage clothing shop owner living and working in rural north Florida. I believe in adding a little vinegar and molasses to my greens, having my coffee outside whenever possible, and mixing something vintage into every room and every outfit.
