Vintage, The Cool Urban Fashion

March 18th, 2014

In today’s culture fashion statements reflect our individual style and nothing shows off your individual style like authentic Vintage Clothing that is China-free!

You can buy the most expensive Designer clothing or the cheapest knock-offs and they will both be from a mass produced China factory. Adding a piece of original American vintage to your wardrobe will enhance your fashion individuality and help our environment by saving some green through re-using clothing that was made to last.

Quality clothing from the decades of American producers will still outlast any new clothing you buy today! A seventy-year-old Pea Coat from WWII will put name brand copies to shame!

Shop the huge selection and find your new favorite piece of clothing; the piece you keep front and center in your closet to wear over and over again.

Vintage isn’t old fashioned; it’s a Fashion Statement! Put on a one-of-a-kind style from the Swing era to Heavy Metal and show off your American icon!

HOW VINTAGE CLOTHING CAN HELP THE EARTH

May 18th, 2013

 

 

Freethinkers!  We are honored to post this article by a very knowledgeable and passionate customer…

HOW VINTAGE CLOTHING CAN HELP THE EARTH

By Nancy C. Morris

There is a different way to look at vintage clothing purchases these days.  Sure it is very refreshing to wear something vintage and know it wasn’t produced in sweatshops nor contributed to the suffering and mistreatment of unfortunate garment workers in Mexico, Bangladesh, China, and other countries.  Vintage clothing purchases are one way of recycling something we can use and it makes a personal statement to us of our own pleasant memories from the past.  In this spirit, the way we treat these vintage purchases afterwards could have a beneficial impact on our plant.   There is a movement afoot for reducing our exposure to toxic chemical detergents and chemical fragrances found in many products used to clean clothes.  After the purchase of a favored vintage clothing item, one can choose those cleaning products that do not harm our won health or that of children or pets. This even helps the many wild creatures we share the planet with.  Chemical fragrances found in many cleaning and laundry and personal care products on the market are now considered a waterway contaminant.  Water treatment plants cannot remove these chemicals.  So the more we use nontoxic cleaning and personal care products, the more we can reduce the toxic chemical waste in our streams, rivers and ultimately the ocean.  Remember, chemicals used in fragranced products are not natural, they don’t clean and don’t freshen; they do pollute.

The National Institute of occupational Safety and Health found 884 toxic substances in a list of 2,983 chemicals used in the fragrance industry.  Many of these fragrance chemicals are used in products to clean clothes.  There is no toxicity data for over 80% of these ingredients.  According to the FDA, fragrances are responsible for 30% of all allergic reactions to cosmetics.  72% of asthmatics have respiratory symptoms from exposure to perfumes.   Many react to clothes washed in fragranced laundry soap, fabric softener, and dryer sheets.  this means thousands of individuals are at risk for severe asthma attacks induced by fragrances, which doesn’t even include the other high risk populations such as babies, children, the elderly, people with emphysema and other lung or immune diseases, and pets who are near clothing that have been treated with these types of products or stay in laundry rooms.  Scented detergents, dryer-sheets and fabric softeners continue to volatilize or outgas for weeks or months.  These products may cause people to suffer migraines, watery eyes and sinus problems; an exposed person may not even realize what is causing the discomfort.  Pets can experience asthma, congestion and irritated eyes and unfortunately can’t speak out about it.

These harmful exposures can happen because the fragrance industry is largely unregulated and self-policing; they do not have to disclose their ingredients in products to consumers.  Their heavy advertising and lobbying budgets furthers this agenda of nondisclosures.  So you fans of vintage clothing do not buy into corporate PR that says you need chemically fragranced products to clean your clothes. Be a fragrance-freethinker.  Perhaps one day the common thought of using fragranced  laundry detergents, cleaners, dryer sheets and other scented products will be a trend that will fall by the wayside as more people become informed on these serious health issues.

 “Unfortunately, dryer sheets can contain some harmful chemicals—including hidden fragrance chemicals that lots of people are sensitive to.”

 FRAGRANCE TIDBITS: approximately 20% of Americans report breathing difficulties, headaches, or other health problems when exposed to air fresheners and deodorizers, and more than 10% report adverse effects when exposed to laundry products vented outdoors. Percentage are nearly twice as high for asthmatics.”

om1970′s ruffle-front gold tuxedo shirt

April 2nd, 2013

You don’t need a formal occasion to work out the tuxedo shirt, but spring is a good time for making this kind of statement.  While originally worn with a synthetic suit of black or brown, this versatile tone of sunflower to goldenrod yellow can go with many colors of pants or even jeans.  The label says “After Six”, but we won’t tell you when to wear it.   Prom or a night out:  The main thing is that you look great!   Click here for more views and sizing information.

NOTE:  This color may appear more vivid on some monitors.  It is a slightly muted shade of golden yellow.

 

Mid-1960′s dotted pink on pink formal dress

April 2nd, 2013

 

Made here in Portland, Oregon, by Chumley for Charles F. Berg, this simple elegant dress with a layer of dotted net overlay is sure to provide plenty of spring enchantment for formal occasions.  Paired with a sleek but voluminous updo, maybe some delicately pointed shoes, this provides all the pretty in pink you need, from the faintest petal pink to more of a baby pink to the hot pink accented tied bow at the waist.  Click here for more views and sizing information.

1980′s neo-Victorian Gunne Sax dress

March 19th, 2013

 

The warm weather may be coming, but maybe you like to keep your arms covered.  Maybe you like a Victorian style of clothing, but you also like the 80′s?  This is exactly what Gunne Sax has created for you, then:  A spectacular fusion of late 1800′s Victorian dress meets seaside bathing costume, incorporated into romantic early 1980′s design, padded shoulders and all.  Definitely distinctive and one-of-a-kind!  Pair it with pumps or lace-up boots, it’s your call.  Click here for more sizing and views.

Flair and flare: Mid-late 1960′s men’s Lord Forecaster trench coat

March 19th, 2013

Put some flair and flare together and you get this:  A very trench coat for the discerning man with an eye to style.  Strong diagonal lines and small checking keep the eye moving.  Lightweight trench is still a good weight for the rains of spring, and a cut of coat like this works well with skinny-to-flared or just plain skinny pants.  Pair with some great Oxfords or ankle boots, maybe a hat, and let the gazes fall upon you!  Click here for more views and sizing information.
