Chic Fashion from 1963

1963 fashion sweaters in Orlon polyester
According to this ad from a 1963 McCall's Magazine, "Seeing is believing - so see the fashion surprises of "Orlon" acrylic in boutiques and wherever better sweaters live."

I don't really know where better sweaters live nowadays. Certainly not in my closet. My closet is full of thrift shop clothes.

I've been popping tags since back in the mid 1970's, which is to say ever since I had a job and was old enough to drive. It was always a source of embarrassment to my parents, who insisted we buy everything from the Sears Surplus Store. With all those "Was and Now" orange stickers, I can't possibly see what the difference is other than the span of a few decades.

I'm sure the fact that I am still wearing thrift shop clothes all these years later is proof that some old habits never really die. As Macklemore would say, "I wear your granddad's clothes. I look incredible. I'm in this big ass coat from that thrift shop down the road. I'm gonna pop some tags..."
