Currently in search of a good home: this jaw dropping 1920s slouch vest w/ attached cape… dripping with ridiculous (in a good way) 19.5″ jet black fringe. There’s two 40″ long tassel style fringe clusters in front as well. Excellent condition and very wearable. These days it’s extremely rare to find vintage as old, exceptional, AND wearable. I find maybe 2 pieces that fit the bill per year. So I guess this year is off to a good start!
Snatch it up for $549.00 if you have deep pockets. If not, don’t be intimated. The reserve is considerably lower.
Fast forward several decades to something similar (and undoubtedly 20s inspired), from boutique label All That Remains. Yours for $690.00 at Bonadrag.

This lovely jacket was auctioned off by Thrifted recently for $255.00. If you’re sad about missing out, we have the same one in purple ending tonight! Perfect for festival season, which is just around the corner.

Wearable art by San Francisco designer Kaisik Wong. Collaborator/friend to the Cockettes and Steven Arnold (among others), inspiration to many, and rivaled by none. To have been a fly on the wall when these were made…
