12 for 12

by Ryan

When I set out to pick 12 pieces from Hamlet's Vintage, I thought about the 60's, 70's and early 80's. Lately, I've been on a bit of an Ahmad Jamal kick, but that is sandwiched in to sounds of Larry Levan disco edits and Big Krit's 12 for 12 Mixtape (See what I did there?).   More than anything, I think those sounds brought me into the realm of sophisticated knits worn by the jazz cats.  I was already a fan of turtlenecks and large 70's collars, but the outstanding selection of leather and suede at Hamlet's Vintage made it that much easier to integrate those as well. 

I'd like to thank Allante for modeling these old threads and fitting me into the schedule before his West Coast jaunt. Also shout out to Hamlet and Leigh from Hamlet's Vintage for letting me dig through their extensive collection. 

All of these dope items are available in the TFM Shop.  I encourage you to sign up for the email newsletter for updates as well as quick discounts.  Keep in mind, this stuff is vintage, so once it's gone...
