Whoa! This thread is so B-A. I didn't consider this vintage, but then again... designers do get their inspiration from the one and only Past!

Graduation day for my mother in the Philippines. I think this was taken in the early 70s

Great thread! Here are a few shots I thought might be of some relevance.

1960s Australia (this is my grandpa), love the way clothes of this era hang, esp the trousers:


1970s Australia (my dad and his first car), but a look a lot of guys pull off today:


I think this was taken in the 50s or 60s... (dad and great-aunt), I love the tailoring of the coat:

I'm so happy that everyone's enjoying the thread! Thank you for your contributions! Keep 'em coming!

Hebden: I can see why! Very stylish; I especially love the first look.

Kessler: Your family/your mom's friends are so beautiful - and stylish! And I like your dad's jacket too!

joie: I love how your grandpa and your dad are posing so similar...and I too love the tailoring on the coat in the Christmas picture - a funky peacoat with a fur collar...I think the only bad thing about this thread is it will be hard to find similar clothes now!

I just remembered that I think I have a CD of old family photos!! I must look for that tonight...
