What About the Guys? Here’s Some Suggested Vintage Clothing Tips for Men
So what about the dudes, the men who might not believe there is something for them in a vintage clothing store? There are plenty of different items available in the vintage market which will make a guy happy with the way he looks and have a minimal impact on his wallet. The Barracuda jacket, for instance, was sharp looking in the 80s and is making a strong comeback today. If you find one on a vintage clothing site, buy it. They are classic and stylish for any occasion.
This is just one example of clothing that was once trendy and is now considered unique. Wearing fashions from a few decades back is okay if you purchase items that fit you and your personality. Fashion is, after all, an expression of self. If you’re a slave to retail or designer clothing then you’ll never really express your own individuality. Wear something unique that hasn’t been seen in a few decades and you’ll stand out as a man with some taste who dares to be different.
Shoes are one area where styles have changed but not enough to be drastic. Other than the slightly different footwear like snakeskin boots, the shoes worn in the 70s, 80s and 90s are perfectly acceptable and even fly under the radar in today’s business and social circles. Shop carefully and you can come up with some comfortable and stylish vintage shoes for a lot less than what you would pay in a retail store.
Vintage T-Shirts are also a hot item for men. Remember that Led Zeppelin 1972 North American tour? Do you have a t-shirt from it? Chances are even if you were around back then and went to one of the shows you’ve lost or destroyed the t-shirt long ago. If you search you can find one today at a vintage clothing site. You could also find all those sports championship t-shirts for the Niners, Cowboys, Steelers, and even the Reggie Jackson led
Men who wear vintage clothing generally are free thinkers who aren’t afraid to be different. Michael Richards, who plays “Kramer” on Seinfeld, is a good example. Check out his wardrobe on the show and you’ll see it’s mostly vintage stuff. Anthony Kiedis of the Red Hot Chili Peppers is also seen regularly in the thrift stores and dozens of other male celebrities are opting for the “retro” look more often during awards ceremonies and other functions. So it’s okay if you want to wear vintage clothing too. It’s not just for women, you know.
