Bush One?, check
Those tumblrs are a great way to kill some free time and get inspired.
Great links, especially for younger readers or older readers wanting to walk down memory lane. Also, a reminder that in it’s heyday even sears sold the look.
What always surprises me is how the shirt maker Sero shows up so often. Most ivy shops I grew up with always carried Gant and Creighton in the 60s. cotton shirts.
OCBD, I checked out your site, I was struck by your Vanhuesen Barracuda.
Talk about a blast from the past, In the 60s,they were part of our “uniform” in high school. Everyone owned two or three, mostly tan, navy and yellow. I owned those three plus a red one, many thought it was a because of the local pro football team, but actually it was a tribute to James Dean.
Paul Fussell, who invented the term “prole gape” has died.
Thanks. I suppose I should start doing something with it now.
Thanks for the plug! A bunch of people started following the Tumblr and I wondered what was up. The best thing about that is that a lot of those people also have good Tumblr’s w/ lots of good new pics.
Another good thing about Tumblr is you can pre-post pics. I’ve already pretty much filled up every day through the summer and into September so I guarantee there will be more to come.
Happy Memorial Day America.
