As you kind folks can see, I'm new around here. I'm also new around the idea of vintage clothing and style. It is something that intrigues me greatly and almost every piece of non-casual clothing I own has some degree of this flavor simply due to my stylistic preference (not because I was making an effort to buy somewhat vintage looking things). Unbeknownst to me at the time, there was (and, of course, is) a substantial following of these "golden era" stylings which led me to Classic Style Magazine and eventually here. With that said, I seem to be somewhat confused as to where the line is drawn when one fuses modern and classic styling. For instance, in the magazine, it seems that those models are going for a classic look utilizing modern clothing and employing fedoras and classic-looking ties to polish off the look. A quick look across this forum exposes a vast array of classic style afficionados who seem to have nothing but purely vintage clothing or custom made clothing made to look vintage. I also realize that I have a very untrained, inexperienced eye for this sort of thing. If I was to take a modern suit like the one I'm wearing below (sorry, I don't have a full body pic!) and top it off with a classic fedora, would that look off because of the suit's modern styling? I am just having trouble understanding whether "the idea" behind this mag is to fuse modern and vintage styling, to sift through modern clothing and select that which looks most vintage, or to seek out genuine vintage and bring it back. Sorry for the long post! This question just seems to be at the heart of all of my other ones!
