2019 Vintage Collection

Why your shop is defined by its staples.

The different products that you purchase regularly and out of necessity are considered “staple goods” to your vintage store. In the past, these items have fewer markdowns but solid profit margins. While price trends may raise or lower demand for other products, the demand for staple goods rarely changes when prices change. They are the necessary items for you to remain in business.

What are staple goods in your Vintage Store

Staple goods are any items in your inventory that are core to your business. They are also known as any staple products, staples, core products, and necessity goods. For example, vintage jeans and t-shirts are staples for any serious vintage clothing store. Skateboards are staples for skate shops. Golf balls are a staple product for a golf shop. If you have a store without staple products, then your store doesn’t stand for anything or isn’t representing anything special to your clients. Read more

My Freedamn! JAPANESE VINTAGE SO-CAL 2 NYC

When it comes to collecting vintage clothing from the United States the Japanese buyers have been paving the path for nearly 30 years. Since the eighties Japanese vintage collectors have been traveling across the United States hitting up thrift stores, vintage stores, clothing flea markets and just about anywhere they could find old vintage jeans, leather jackets, sneakers or t-shirts.

As the vintage clothing culture became more popular in Japan and the demand grew collectors began to find new ways to locate more product. Because each vintage piece is essentially a one-off it is difficult to determine the actual size and fit without trying it on. One problem the collectors had was finding vintage pieces that were not only the correct size but the way the garment fit had to be perfect as well. To overcome this obstacle they hired hip Japanese boys and girls that were the perfect body shape to match the sizes that they were looking for.

60′s PSYCHEDELIA & THE BIRTH OF SURF ART | THE LEGEND OF ARTIST RICK GRIFFIN

July 23, 2017 by  
Filed under Art, Featured, Lifestyle, News & Information, Resourcful, Surfing

Rick Griffin is known as a surfer, cartoonist, psychedelic poster artist, legend. Griffin was born near Palos Verdes in 1944, where he took-up surfing at age 14. While he was still in high school in the 50’s he was heavily influenced by Mad magazines comic styling but he soon found his own voice, creating his own surf style that would become iconic. Through his undeniable artistic talent and connections through surfing, Griffin was soon working for surf legend, Greg Noll, among others. After graduating from high school he joined Surfer Magazine as a staff artist– creating the legendary California surf scene character Murphy, and working his way up to Art Director by the time he was of 20. But by 1964, Griffin decided it was time to move on and see what the world outside of So Cal’s tight-knit surfer scene had for him.

    Retro 1960’s Swimwear, Beachwear and Surf Fashion

    1960's Beachwear

    In the early part of the 1960’s swimwear was still pretty conservative, much like the decade earlier in the 1950’s. However fashion ideals began to change rather quickly in the mid 60’s with the introduction of the bikini and low cut bathing suit bottoms.

    Until the 1960’s fashion was geared towards adults so inspiration was drawn from high fashion couture houses. Int he 1960’s things began to change as fashion designers began to focus on the tastes and style of the up and coming youth market.

    Vintage Swimsuits

    It is almost that time a year where many of us get to shed our clothes and soak in some rays down at the local water hole. This year 1970’s fashion is on the rise and I just can’t help but browse through some of favorite photos of 70’s swimwear. From European designer beach wear to southern California surf-wear, 1970’s swimwear had a  a style and appeal all of its own.

    There are certain keys to follow when dating vintage swimwear:

    -Lastex began to be used in swimwear starting in the late 30’s and continued through the 50’s.
    -Spandex, better known as elastane in Europe, began to be used in swimsuits in the late 60’s. Dupont patented this as Lycra.
    -Fabric content on labels was mandated in the 1960’s
    -Garment care instructions seen on labels beginning in 1971
    -Symbols on care labels began in the 1990’s in the US, earlier elsewhere

      Seventies Fashion Revisited

      70s vintage clothing designers

      “Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but follows religiously the new.” Henry David Thoreau.

      There are a few designers from the seventies that set the trends for decades to come.

      These designers were cutting edge for their time and their creations and designs are still being used today by contemporary designers around the world. With the eighties moving by, the seventies is looking like it is going to be the next big thing in Vintage Clothing.

      Let us take a look at some of the movers and shakers from this era:

      Vintage Seventies Designers


      Halston

      Seventies fashion DesignersRoy Halston Frowick was a definitive designer of the seventies who created nearly every popular dress that you saw on the dance floor. His draped and free moving construction of his garments without buttons or zippers made them perfect for the dance floor. The halter and the shoulder style dress were hands down his most replicated pieces.  Halston designed for many of the celebrities back in the seventies and was one of the first major designers to license his name, making his clothes more accessible tot he masses.

       

      Missoni

      Misoni Zig Zag PatternItalian Fashion Designer Ottavio Missoni was best known for knitwear with their bold, bright space dyed weave patterns.The Missoni zig zag pattern knit is easily recognizable in today’s fashion. It is used on everything from scarves, caps, dresses and outerwear.

       

       

       

       

      Diane von Furstenberg

      Diane Von Von Furstenberg will most likely always be noted as the designer who invented the jersey wrap dress which soon became a wardrobe necessity. The Kimoni inspired wrap dress is Von Furstenberg trademark dress, she was influential to all dress designers establishing a standard for the ease and comfort in woman’s clothing for decades to come.

       

       

       

      Thea Porter

      seventies fashionThea Porter is a half English, half French clothing designer that was inspired by traveling the world when she was young. She translated her multi cultured ethnic experiences into her designs that inspired the bohemian look that was popular in the mid seventies. Her career as a designer began with her own extensive clothing collection and a middle eastern import store on the fashion streets of London. There she designed a number of different caftans, maxi dresses that were all very accessible and stylish.

       

       

       

      Bill Gibb

      seventies fashionBill Gibb was famous for mixing prints, textures and embellishments with ethnic, medieval, and romantic flare. This made Gibb a tremendous influence of the “hippie” style of clothing that became popular in the 70’s. Gibb was influenced by a close friend and artist/textile designer Kaffe Fassett who inspired the wild use of colors and patterns that you see in his designs.

       


      These designers all left their mark on fashion for years to come. Many of the vintage pieces that we collect today from the seventies were inspired by these designers. If you ever run across and origional piece I would recomend holding onto it, you never know when you will have the opportunity to get an item like that again.
