Don't worry, this isn't a man bashing post. Its about men's vintage clothing and the scarcity of sourcing it. Here's my theory. I've noticed that my husband, who is a mechanic by trade, will wear his clothing until it is literally falling apart and/or completely stained. Have you every noticed if you go to a thrift store there are at least a dozen rows of women's clothing and maybe 3 of men's? So my theory is men through the decades haven't changed much and are just like my husband. Y'all wear it until we snatch it away and turn it into a dust rag!
So what does that mean? Finding men's vintage clothing is difficult at best and often, when I locate it, it is priced accordingly (aka expensive). This is exactly why I have decided to start bringing in reproduction vintage style men's clothing. I'm rather picky though. I feel it should blend nicely with the vintage finds we have so all of the reproduction that I intend to bring in will have an authentic appearance to it. You won't find bowling shirts covered in pinup girls but you might find a pair of trousers with low belt loops and deep pleats.
Based on my research, this might be a slow process. Mainly because the vendors that do this style well also tend to not do wholesale or are bespoke. I have found a British mod style vendor I really like and I should be receiving samples very soon. I'm always on the hunt though, so if you see authentic looking reproduction out there that you think I should carry in the shop, please reach out to me at email@example.com and let me know or share a link!
