The Hot New Look of The Military Coat and Vintage Suits
What Makes Vintage Clothing Cool
Its been long said that when it comes to fashion trends of the moment its always best look back to the past. The fact is fashion is very cyclical and what was once a ground breaking trend is now better known as classic or vintage.
So it goes in the fashion world, many of the true visionary designs and cuts have already been envisioned and today’s master designers are just mastering their craft by taking cues from the past and interjecting modern flair. It takes a really special designer to create something that has not already been done.
To get the look right and really come back to the truest essence of the style the only way to go is via vintage clothing. There are so many places to find many examples of classic fashion and its a shame that vintage clothing is so often overlooked, but a quick trip to a thrift store or vintage clothier and you will find gems. the other upside of going vintage is of course the price. You can find many pieces for pennies on the dollar of what you would spend at retail. And this type of clothing comes with some thing no new clothing can come with… a patina that adds character and personality. Truly great fashion comes with a story and history,even if its implied, that can be seen just by looking at it.
The Military Over Coat
The Military overcoat is the newest return trend of the moment. From its iconic cut to clean ornamental details many of the best dressed men are opting to wear them over their period inspired vintage custom suits.
There is more to them than fashion of course. The most sought after look is the coat from the world war 2 era, and these are the coats that were designed for the harsh Eastern European front and with its heavy wool and robust construction they are meant to keep you warm while looking cool.
