Happy New Year 2017 From Old Time Blues

Aside

Old Time Blues wishes a happy 2017 to all!

As 2016 comes to its close, I extend my sincerest wishes to all of you for a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2017.  Old Time Blues’ resolution for the new year is to keep the hot jazz, lowdown blues, down home old time, and other esoteric tunes flowing like fine wine, and in even greater volume!  Unfortunately, I still don’t have a suitable Guy Lombardo record prepared for this occasion, so please enjoy last year’s celebratory disc.

Also, be sure to tune in to the world famous Radio Dismuke all through New Years’ Day for the rebroadcast of the annual New Years’ Eve Broadcast!  For the first time, I have the tremendous pleasure of joining those esteemed collectors with some of the best sides from the Old Time Blues collection to add to their already impressive playlist!

Sincerely,
R. Connor Montgomery

Old Time Blues Men’s Reproduction Vintage Clothing Compendium

I like vintage clothes, I have a modest collection of them, but often I opt to save the irreplaceable antiques for special occasions, and use more replaceable vintage styled modern garments for everyday wear.  Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to find those esoteric styles, most of what you’ll find at your local department store conforms to the modern fashion trends of low-waisted slim-fit slave labor made rags.  In my never ending search for alternatives, I’ve compiled the following list of websites offering vintage styled clothing for men.  I’ve included everything I can find in this list, some are top-notch high quality goods, others may be less so—you’ll have to use your own discretion.  It isn’t my goal to build any of them up, nor to tear them down.  I can’t vouch for the quality of most these products, as I have only sampled a few thusfar.  By request, the locations of each are listed by their ISO two digit country codes, and can easily be searched using your browsers “find” feature (typically “Ctrl+F”).

If you happen to belong to the feminine persuasion, I’m afraid I can’t offer much help, except for the sources listed here that cater to both sexes (and there are a fair number of those), but I can tell you that reproduction vintage for women seems to be more prevalent than for men.  I’d recommend giving it a search on Google, someone else has probably made a list like this for ladies’ wear.
