Letterman jackets look so cool. Always have, always will. Apparently, celebrities and fashionistas think so, too -- The New York Times ran an article about letterman jackets in spring, saying the trend was heating up. In the article, Jack Marcus, the owner of Cheap Jack’s vintage clothing shop in Manhattan said, “Designers started buying them from me about a year ago, so I knew it was coming. About two months ago, I’d say, customers started buying them, too.” Well, then. Never one to be left behind, RetroMania is representin' with this awesome vintage letterman jacket (left).

We love vintage clothes as much as the next Fort Worth and Dallas midcentury freak. So while we were rearranging things at RetroMania recently, we decided to add some coats, dresses, heels and assorted accessories to the mix. Take a peek and see what you think — we'd love your impressions. The orange silk heels are about a size 7 or 7.5 (oh, so close!) and most of the dresses/coats are about a size 8 to 10. I think the little '70s dress with diagonal bands of brown and cream would look so great with tall ankle booties and ratted-up hair (man, I miss Amy Winehouse!). There's also a very ladylike double-breasted nubby green coat with fox collar -- just screams for a poofy ponytail and sexy shades. While we're at it, we need to give a shout-out to the latest cool local blog. It's called Mosey! and it chronicles local street style. Hey, maybe we'll spot someone on Mosey! wearing our stuff! BTW, thanks, Fortworthology, for spreadin' the news!
