The many wonderful wares to be coveted at the San Francisco Vintage Fashion Expo.
I recently had the pleasure of visiting the mecca of secondhand shopping, the Vintage Fashion Expo in San Francisco. It’s a bonanza of vintage clothes, jewelry and accessories…
Philly, when you get one of these, holla atcho girl.

So tempted to promote this to the #fashion tag. I mean, look at those snazzy sandals!

OMG how fun would it be to be an archivist for a major fashion brand? Does that job exist?! OMG.

A bunch of us from the men’s and crewcuts design teams went out to L.A. recently for a Spring ’12 research trip. The Inspiration event was held in Long Beach, California, at the Queen Mary and is very vintage-menswear specific. A lot of menswear companies head out here for inspiration. There are a bunch of booths set up from Japanese labels and vintage collectors from all over the country, as well as the UK. You can find more info on it here http://inspirationla.com/.
Every year we take a design trip to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, which is set up on the second Sunday of every month. This is a big industry thing to go to, especially in menswear. People from all over the world set up here —you even brush shoulders with celebrities from time to time.
