I love the sweater! Also great communication with the seller!
It all started a few years ago...
I'd had a passion for vintage for as far back as I could remember. I was having lots of fun managing a laid-back surf shop when I decided to shake things up. With a great big bag of excitement, I left the surf shop behind and booked myself a flight to San Francisco.
I spent a fantastic year (or two) travelling around California and learning all I could about American vintage. Cut to today: I travel back and forth between not-so-sunny England to much-more-sunny California to bring the very best American vintage I can find back to Europe.
Why American vintage? Its spirit. I am fascinated by the story behind every piece: an 80s leather jacket that rocked out in a dive bar; a 70s jumpsuit that paraded around a disco dancefloor; a 50s circle skirt that flirted around a diner jukebox. Its the home of denim, the t-shirt, the cowboy hat, the varsity sweater. It is Hollywood glamour, Breakfast at Tiffany's, and the Summer of Love.
I hope you love what you find here as much as I do!
