I’m not gonna lie, I’ve had this shirt for a while. My mom’s had it even longer though! This shirt was my mom’s from the eighties I think (?) and I love it so much. It’s vintage Ralph Lauren and dang has it held up well. Not a hole in sight and I think I finally broke it in!

Needless to say, a good vintage piece can be a timeless staple in any closet. The trick is to know where to find them though. And the only thing I can say to that is hunting. You gotta be on the hunt for good vintage otherwise you’ll never find anything. I love vintage and it’s a must in my closet.
To me, vintage is fabulous. I just love the classic styles and going on the hunt for a crown jewel. Finding a piece that’s in such good shape is like finding the perfect pair of shoes in your size on sale. Your heart skips a beat and when you try it on and it fits perfectly (a rarity with vintage) you just know it’s meant to be.
I got lucky with this shirt because I didn’t have to look very far to find it. However I have been on my fair share of vintage clothing hunts. Last summer I finally found a pair of Dooney & Bourke loafers and it was like I had won the lottery.
