Vintage in the ’80s

Vintage clothes in the early ’80s. Even the new pieces in the picture would be considered vintage now.

’30s vintage hat, ’20s vintage pince-nez, bowtie, ’70s jacket, vest, plaid shirt, jeans and hiking boots. What a look.

Adam Back Bow

This Adam dates from the mid to late 1950s. It has a porkpie crease without the center bump-up. The ribbon is tri-tone, with a back bow. Adams of this era used a plastic protective barrier between the sweatband and the felt of the hat, which shrinks up something fierce with age and heat. It’s easily remedied by simply ripping the plastic out of the hat. As you can see, this one had that problem.
