Vintage Miscellany – August 11, 2013

The Vintage Traveler will be off to New York City this week, but there will still be postings here.  I might be a little slow responding, as I’ll be museum hopping and doing a bit of shopping and eating and well, whatever.

I’ll be tweeting my adventures, so if you want to know whether or not I get into trouble you can follow my tweets using the link in the side bar.  Wish me luck in my quest for lots of fashion fun!

*  Cone Denim in Greensboro, NC, has had to find and refurbish old looms to keep up with the demand for their selvage denim.  Capacity was increased by 25%.

*   Dior Couture is not your average sewing factory, and this short video shows why.

*   Colin McDowell looks at the state of fashion criticism and does not like it.

*   Saks Fifth Avenue will be sold to the Hudson’s Bay Company.  Is luxury shopping endangered?

*   Honestly, some people have NO clue about life.

*   On my list for this week: Urban Fabric: Building New York’s Garment District.

*   Here’s look at some vintage travel posters in the Charleston Museum collection.

  3. Liz…I for one, really enjoyed the Airport Picture showing passengers getting ready to board the Douglas Aircraft pictured in the scene. I, when a former Eastern Airline Stewardess, flew DC-3’s like pictured in the photo (late 40′ early 50’s….and remember how the passengers used to be so well dressed.

    Wouldn’t it be cool if YOU wore a vintage outfit, hat, gloves, etc to portray how a well dressed passenger USED to dress. What fun that would be for you and for other passengers. Just a thought….a great way to start a trip like you are taking…an actual vintage send-off.

    Please don’t tell me you have already left and it is too late for my suggestion.
