Can Anyone Wear Vintage Clothing?

Of course! People who wear vintage clothing can represent any type of person in the general population.  However, people who wear vintage, either a single piece in an outfit or head-to-toe, usually have an interest in fashion and want to create their own individual style.

All of us here at AMERICANA have been wearing & collecting vintage clothing long before there was even the term “vintage.”  We’ve always had fun hunting for particular items which stood the test of time in style and quality, or which were unique to wear with contemporary items.

Dating an item & allowing that to be the most important determining factor of whether it was acceptable for our wardrobes or not was never the litmus test for our vintage style.

Are There Trends in Classic American Vintage Clothing?

Classic American clothing items will always find their way into both new fashions globally as well as being a mainstay of vintage clothing.  That is because the timeless style of these items will always be in fashion and look great on anyone in any decade.

What we love most about the clothing we sell is when people re-mix the classics to constantly create new looks.  These classic American pieces have been blended with new fashions for generations to create new styles that reflect changing attitudes in society.

Here at AMERICANA, we fully embrace  all interpretations or creations of  new fashions that incorporate classic pieces of American vintage clothing to reflect a new style, attitude and rhythm of life. We love to see both old school preppies and new trads, rockabillies and psychobillies, new and old school hip-hop styles and everything else that makes classic American fashion look good!

Sticking With The Classics

Do you think the rugged heritage look is something new for this season?  Well, think again!

This article appeared in TIME magazine in 1976 describing how outdoor clothing and traditional work wear became fashionable for the urban set back then:

Again in September 2010, the heritage look was dissected by The Wall Street Journal:

That’s what we’re all about here at AMERICANA.

Sticking with the classics, which will always be in fashion…anytime…anywhere.
