In Detail – 2/24/2012

So, since the 5D is in for repairs. My pal, and super talented photographer Clark Griffiths helped me with some photos for a post while I await it’s return. Quite warm out today, but I hope it’s not the end of the nicer weather we’ve been getting here down south. I don’t really mess with slim fitting cargo pants, and I can’t seem to find a pair better than these vintage ones. If I could date them, I would say they’re Vietnam era BDU’s. It’s neat to see the design elements that Daiki took from these for the pair of Engineered Garments trousers I own. Well-worn, washed a lot Engineered Garments plaid work shirt. Red Wing 8131′s at two years of wear, and treated with Obenauf’s three times.

Vintage Finds: Wool Fisherman Sweater & Army Cargos

There’s not much for specialty stores in Pennsylvania, but I did have some pretty decent luck at second-hand stores while up there. I had been looking for a oatmeal colored fisherman sweater for awhile, and thanks to a Goodwill somewhere near Mt. Ligonier – the hunt is over. Knit of mainly wool with a really slubby texture, this was an awesome find for under $3. Next up, a pair of Winfield Mfg Company Cargos from a really rad vintage shop located in the south side of Pittsburgh. I wanted some olive drab cargos for awhile, but every pair I found was manufactured in China, and just felt like bad quality. These are made of a 50% Cotton/50% Poly blend with tons of little details:

  • 6 snap-secured pockets
  • Suspender buttons inside
  • Side-tabs for waist adjustment
  • Draw-string hem
  • Serval zipper fly
  • Made in USA
