Vintage: North Face

I've been hunting around for a bit more vintage lately - of course, when it's 1am, that means I'm on eBay. I just came across this old North Face top and got pretty excited. Not only is the pattern on the fleece body nice and rascal, but the neck cinch is an interesting detail. The zip pocket on the back is also a great functional piece of design. It might be a difficult item to mix into your daily wardrobe but I can see menswear designers incorporating more climbing and hiking details into things in seasons to come. There is definitely potential for some interesting designs combining these old-style features with today's tailoring and technology.
