Unearthed: SCHIESHER, DP USN Hat

—01-03. Navy Twill.

Words

I'm honestly not sure how you'd even begin to pull off this particular look, but regardless: this USN hat really is a thing of beauty. The colour, the fabric, the stitching – it's got to be worth hanging off of a hook at the very least. Follow the link below for larger imagery and more details.

Tag Watching

—01-04. Shirts, hats, knits, and sweats.

Words

Some people around here are pretty good at the ol' eBay game. I'm not one of them. I'll watch, maybe bid, then forget or fall asleep; usually missing out on the best thing ever by ten cents. At least I have all the photos I've saved in the process, clogging up my hard drive, to help make up for all the near misses, and what-if's. The folder containing the brand, fabric and washing tags is a personal favourite. It's like collecting internet stamps.

—01. Constructed from Cordura Nylon.
—02. Classic 60s Design.

Words

Up until now, Kelty's Vintage collection has only been available in Japan. A handful of UK retailers including Oi Polloi and End have recently received a nice little selection of the bags. They are simple, clean and classic. The small Day Pack is one of my favorites, and a bag that I will probably end up purchasing this summer, just need to decide on the color.
