I provided Shogo access to my closet, also a few bins filled with workwear along with assorted print & promotional material from the collection. After 3 hours of shooting & story telling they wrapped it up and left me with this current special issue ALL ABOUT VINTAGE DENIM which had yet to hit the US stands.
I highly recommend this issue as a great guide book & resource for the vintage workwear afficinado. It features many of the same brands & types of items featured on this blog & sold via The San Fernando Valley Mercantile Co. Contact us if you can't find a copy.

This reminds me of something that Zip recently said to me. I recall it going something like "you don't need to breath all the air", or as we said at the drinking fountain back in grade school, "save some for the fishes".
If & when the photos appear in the upcoming Lightning Vintage Issue, I will post some pictures of some of the pieces featured.
Big thanks to Shogo & Tad from Lightning for their visit & the special issue and to Zip for the hook up.
