1950s WESTERN-WEAR LADIES’ SUEDE LEATHER JACKET

Image

This jacket was a great find! It wasn’t  really high-end in it’s time, but it is nicely made and in excellent vintage condition.

Western-wear is classic and always comes back into fashion, but . . . .  the true vintage pieces are, I find, the best when it comes to styling and workmanship.

I was so fortunate to discover this one, which even had some additional matching fringe with it – just in case.  Although it is intact as is, having extra original fabric or buttons, etc. is such a blessing, and rare!

TRUE VINTAGE HANDMADE SPRING SHIRTWAIST DRESS FROM THE FORTIES OR FIFTIES

IMG_1301An iconic mid-century cotton shirtwaist dress that someone made at home, probably in a small town or on a farm.   EVERY WOMAN was wearing these at one time – like we wear jeans today.

If you’re able to zoom in, check out the buttons and the pocket flaps on the skirt.  It’s a very pretty pink plaid.  Just right for running out to the A & P, baking a pie or collecting eggs . . . . . . .

CLASSIC TRUE VINTAGE WESTERN-WEAR HAT

Image

To wear at least three seasons of the year, a wool felt classic hat will last for decades and complete almost any sportswear outfit. This men’s cowboy style from the 1970s or before is uni-sex now.

The best quality hats of this type have a leather inside hatband. A liner (often satin) is another sign that it is of high quality. Look for the maker’s name stamped inside and, often, the name of the store where it was sold.

These will turn up in lots of places if you’re savvy about where to look.   You just never know . . . .
