Peaks to Prairie
My love of vintage hunting has grown so much over the past few years. I don't have a huge collection by any means, but it is slowly growing, and I really enjoy finding more pieces from different eras.
I normally go for a workwear style, usually in small men's sizes, from markets, vintage shops or online. Dungarees are one of my staples. I love them. Probably because the more you wear them the better they actually look. The pair I have on here are by Key Imperial, and are in my favourite hickory stripe. I bought these from Etsy, and I don't think they were much more that £40. They are so comfy, and very easy to just throw on.
On this occasion, I have teamed them with a vintage t that I picked up from one of my favourite stalls at Spitalfield market. On Thursdays, they have a huge array of vintage sellers, selling not only clothing but also old maps, homeware, books etc. The seller I picked this up from is called Ben. (Follow him on Instagram, he always uploads great stuff @bensleathergoodsco) We were trying to work out the artist who did the print on the t shirt. I have tried researching it but can't decipher his name... so if anyone else can, let me know!
Over this look I wore a Nigel Cabourn Men's 'Big Shirt' - what I love about this shirt, is not only the longer length (which means it can be worn as an over shirt, as I have done, or fully buttoned up) but it also has two side entry pockets which is a cool feature.
All worn with a pair of my trusty Birkenstocks. I have these in a few colours, but I tend to wear my white ones the most. They are extremely comfortable, and go with almost everything. So well worth investing in a few pairs.
