One of the great things about a blog is that years after a post is made, someone will find the post and add to the story. The bad thing is that sometimes I’m the only person who is aware that the conversation continues. So now, every now and then I’m going to post updates to old posts so we can all enjoy learning more.
Last April I posted about this hat with the built-in sunglasses. At the time, several people posted that the hat style could be seen in various films. Recently thriftanistasocialclub posted that she’d seen one in A Summer Place, a 1959 film staring Sandra Dee. And here she is.
I took this photo from my TV while watching the film via Netflix.
I showed off this Liberty of London scarf in 2012. Reader Diana at

Last year I posted about the Vanderbilt Shirt company. The post was found by Jan Schochet, who co-wrote a book on Jewish businesses in Asheville. She has been able to supply me with quite a bit of information, and now the family that owned the factory has been in touch. Stay tuned.
I posted about these slightly naughty braces with a Brooks Brothers label in 2011. I was puzzled because I found an ad for the same braces that were made by Calvin Curtis. Michael, who actually knew Calvin Curtis cleared up the mystery by saying that Curtis made that one model for Brooks.
Last July I wrote about Enna Jetticks shoes. Ed commented about how his grandmother had worked there, and he told what eventually happened to the factory.
