These days, sometimes I am leaning towards the mood of certain old period….the early~mid 80s, I was in early 20s…not even thought about coming to the U.S. yet….
Start off with vintage 501s…you had to have them…..they were not that expensive back then.
You could get a pair of deadstock 501XX with paper patch for under $400-, used for $200- or so…
Older friends used to wear them with short-and-out T-shirt under a worn vintage “V” sweatshirt, and a pair of deadstock 60s Chuck Taylor or Jack Purcels…so we copied….
A few vintage deadstock shops have just opened up in Harajuku.
Vintage Japanese souvenir jackets from 50s.
Some of our older ex-surfer friends wore them with a pair of low-hung (already!) XX or beat-up 646…w/long straight hair….I thought it was really cool.
Back then, there were not many people wore them besides 50s wannabes or gangsters in movie world.
A vintage denim jacket was a must….some people already started wearing and selling them several years back….in the late 70s.
They wore these authentic vintage flight jackets….A-2, MA-1, L2-B….not seriously.
There were no repro or repro brands back then yet…
Some wore CWU jackets…..I copied my DJ friend….his was a really worn, yet totally cool piece.
I start feelin’ that it’s not just a reminiscence….but maybe a direction which needs to be restored… (Takeshi)
I scored this junk on Ebay……a hunting? jacket in blue denim x nylon? ….another stupid 70s idea?
wow…it was not a JOKE!
