Depression era chic
Unless you'vce been living under a rock, you'll have heard the economy has taken something of a downturn of late. While the UK seems to be inching out of recession (Go Chancellor Osborne! Go cuts!) there are still very real fears of a double-dip recession. Double-dip may very well sound like a nice ice lolly but it's actually way more serious than an ice cream. With all this talk of economic ruin, there's no better a time to rock some depression era styles. Upstep Canadian brand Homespun. They make clothes of the sort that penniless folk wore during the Great Depression. Below, check out their 'Slub Terry' henley made especially for Inventory Stockroom. Here's the blurb: "Antique styled men's knit tops, inspired by the designer's collection of depression era undershirts. The slub terry Henley shirts are constructed with high quality raw cotton fabrics and sewn in the old fashioned way, utilizing antique equipment which is rarely used anymore. Detailed with fine antique buttons and Homespun labeling, these garments have a simple quality, timeless style and a great feel."
