Showcasing your style is a completely individualizing experience. It allows you to stand out. It gives others a glimpse of what you’re into and what you appreciate. And it can be a great talking piece. My first vintage item was a grey with 3/4 (blue!) sleeve Journey t-shirt from 1983. On the back, it listed their tour dates and cities for that year. The front had a futuristic design. I loved their music, like many people did and still do. Nobody I knew had a shirt like this. It was unapologetically 80s and reflected a time that was a distant memory to most. People always asked where I got the shirt or commented that they once had one like it. It got a bit of attention. I never wore it for that reason. I simply like the shirt and the nostalgia it brought. I could tell that it brought old feelings and memories to the people that asked about it. To me, it felt like stepping back in a time that I hadn’t had the opportunity to live.
The memories and feelings a piece can evoke in people is truly amazing. Our memories live forever, but often get backlogged in our day-to-day busyness. Wearing a piece of history is like carrying a piece of it forward in time. It’s almost like stepping out of a time machine when you choose to wear vintage.
