Though I would choose vintage styles and pieces over contemporary, there are some limitations or gripes I have with vintage, and thought that perhaps other Loungers thought the same. Here's your place to vent. Can be about true vintage and/or repro items. Here are some of mine: - Garments were cut much differently in the olden days. People experimented with different patterns, fabrics and concepts than they do today. Wearing 1940's/early 50's jackets can suck sometimes because people will try to call me out on my "badly fitting" coat, even though it's just cut fuller and has bolder shoulders. This does not always mean the jacket is badly fitting. A two-tone leisure coat is suddenly an "improper suit"! - True vintage pieces can be a pain in the rear to take care of. Most pieces must be dry cleaned or hand-washed, and contemporary definitely has vintage beat in convenience, in this regard. Many true vintage pieces are susceptible to torn seams or other damage. In my experience, true vintage shoes are probably the hardest items to take care of, because it seems like MUCH more can go wrong with them as opposed to a hat or necktie. - Vintage sizes are all over the place What about y'alls gripes and pet peeves?
