VINTAGE MILITARY BUTTON SHIRT by LEVI'S VINTAGE CLOTHING

this shirt is from the time when LVC invested much love and time in unique pieces. certainly made in usa! i found this shirt yesterday in a storage box while looking for an old western shirt. i think i bought it about 2002 for my wife and it was so f***ing expensive but special. when i interpret the numbers on the label print correctly the shirt was made in august 2001 (08/01). i remember where i bought it: at HECKMANN in DARMSTADT, GERMANY, who sold a lot of genius LVC stuff at this time. i think to remember some one told me that MADONNA wore this shirt on stage. anyway it is so well done and has so many details to check. wonderful un-countable pearly buttons, push buttons with engraved LS&CO S.F., perfect vintage color irregularities in faded blue, tan, grey and yellow, different sorts of seams in different colors ... AWESOME. i think i should frame the shirt and hang it up in my office ... beside, my wife never wore the shirt; she thought it was too showy, too crazy.  pics | LTG

THE 7OZ. CLAMPDOWN COTTON LINEN SHIRT by TELLASON

what a nice lightweight 7oz. selvage work shirt made of 35% linen and 65% cotton from italy. for sure the shirt is cut and sewn in SAN FRANCISCO with all the features you know from TELLASON's CLAMPDOWN shirt. check the nice details like the knife and pencil holders, the selvage seams and smart buttons. at the moment the shirt turns some rounds in washing machine. the indigo is brutal marking. just by touching the shirt for these pics i got dark blue fingertips. UWE E. MAIER c/o AMTRAQ who gave me this shirt told me to wash it before the first wearing in any case. again exiting how the result will look like. pics | TELLASON people shot, others LTG
