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.

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.
Spring is in the air here at Monster Vintage headquarters: The blossoms are opening, the birds are migrating, and you can smell something blooming in the air. We dream of a time when we’ll see the sun for more than fifteen minutes. This blouse expresses that hope: It is for short-sleeve weather. Made for K-Mart in lightweight fabric, the print in varying intensities of red, yellow, blue, and just a little peach on white reminds us of a time in the not too far-off future when we will actually want to go outside. In classic late 1960’s/early 1970’s style, this blouse can be loosely belted and worn with shorts, pedal pushers, and even a light A-line skirt. Click here for fabric, sizing, and other information.

Somewhere between “camel” and “light cinnamon” in color is this efficient, tailored shirtwaister dress. Made for the “Tom Boy” label by a company called “American Golfer”, this dress tells a little story about what semi-activewear for women looked like in the early to mid 1940’s. The design grants enough movement for a round of golf, but the details like the patch and flap pockets and the great deco-disc buttons make the design attractive enough to wear off the green as well.

Combining 1980’s love for asymmetry and royal blue, this deadstock gown by Alyce Designs is in a timeless empire cut with a sheer, diaphanous overlay of what could be called “raining roses”. The flower motif adds tons of visual interest and glitz for the gown’s intended purpose as formalwear. As with many of the “true” hues, royal blue looks good with several skin tones and hair colors. Most of all, this is a unique piece and has never been owned before! Click here for more views and sizing information.
Camouflage print says a lot about a place. The way modern camouflage patterns and colors are developed is ingenious while being practical at the same time. According to our high-powered Internet research skills, Australian camouflage uses analyses from aerial photographs and interprets those photos into disruption patterns and colors to help conceal the wearer in any Australian terrain from bushland to jungle. We at Monster Vintage do not recommend trying to blend in to any environment using camouflage shirts, especially outside of their place of origin. These colors certainly would not work in Oregon!
