BEAR OUTDOOR CLOTHING HUNTING SHIRT JACKET

Today is a gem I picked up yesterday...
I've been keeping my eyes open for a shirt/jac like this.

It's great as it's a jacket, but not quite a jacket, plus it looks really 40's to me.

Pocket detail..

Made by "Black Bear Outdoor Clothing" A Bear for Wear... gotta love that. Plus it adds a little color to my wardrobe.

THERMOS ALUMINUM LUNCHBOX

Here's my vintage Thermos work Lunch Box.
All aluminum. It's not in perfect shape and is missing the original thermos.

I like it as it actually does a good job holding my lunch. Plus you don't too many of them around any more.

finding a good one is tough, but I know they're out there.

so if you pack a lunch, pack it in something cool!

BAY RUM COLOGNE

This is something I don't use very often but it's something some do.
I wanted something that was vintage. Bay Rum Cologne has been around for a long, long time.

So I found Bert's Bee's and my mom gave me the Royall rum. Both are old. As in Bert's hasn't made it in a few years.

I really haven't used that much of the Bert's I think it's been slowly evaporating over the years.

The Royall Bay Rhum comes in a really cool bottle.
Vintage smells are just another part of being vintage... They work great when you're wearing your 40's suit or sport jacket or just want to stand out from the crowd, but not being part of the crowd...

Technics SA-500 STEREO RECEIVER

Today I'm showing my Stereo in the back room...
It used to be when you bought a stereo it was a heavy and metal and wood...

Full of dials and knobs and levers

the dial "glided" across to get your channels.

It was a work of art... This is one such one. A Technics Stereo Receiver SA-500 by Panasonic.

It also has a phono input so I have to have it with my B&O record player. Vintage Stereo equipment is a guy thing... A Vintage Guy thing.

VINTAGE HAT BOXES

sorry for the delay yesterday... I've been working on a short film.
Today it's Hat Boxes! You've got some swell lids, but where are you going to keep them safe?

These are two of mine. A vintage Lee box from pre-war and a post war Knox.

Sometimes the hat boxes are nice enough to leave out as they're really works of art.

Each manufacturer really went all out on the design of these. All different shapes and colors.

And that's what one looks like inside to keep your fedora nice and safe. They're stored upside down.
