VINTAGE ROYAL HAWAIIAN COLOGNE

vintage royal hawaiian cologne

Royal Hawaiian Cologne

This early 1970s vintage Royal Hawaiian cologne mens gift set is called the 5 Island Colognes and features five different scents, including Pikake, White Ginger, Plumeria, Orchid, and Hibiscus. Each bottle of Royal Hawaiian cologne in this set measures 1/2 fl oz. This particular gift set was still factory sealed in a fancy gift box with cute plastic flowers and a box cover with a sexy retro bikini babe, perhaps suggesting the type of woman you might attract while wearing the seductive scents of the 5 Islands! This gift sampler set was made in Honolulu, Hawaii by Royal Hawaiian, who still make perfumes to this very day.

WRANGLER VINTAGE WESTERN SHIRT

vintage western shirt

This new old stock Wrangler brand vintage Western shirt is still new with tags in its original packaging.

It is still factory-folded with original pins and cardboard inserts, and it was well-stored, bright and unfaded. It is marked as 16 1/2 - 33, which is approximately a Men's size Large. The vintage Western shirt has an intricate floral and sage green cotton-poly blend, double-breasted pockets, long tails, and stunning purple pearlesque buttons. We aren't exactly sure it's age, probably 1960s, but maybe earlier. Looking like something out of an early Porter Wagoner Show episode, this vintage Western shirt is the perfect attire for Country Music traditionalists, Rockabilly freaks, Austin songwriters, LA Rock Stars, professional models...and, of course, real cowboys. You may want to see our main page on vintage clothes.  The shirt was removed and placed back in the plastic sleeve (which was never sealed shut) only long enough to photograph it and inspect for damage. There are no visible flaws. Below is another Wrangler vintage western shirt we found with this one, another deadstock item in its original package. Both of these vintage western shirts sold to a classy gentleman in Belguim, who confirmed they fit great and were exactly what he was looking for...this is what we live to hear. Fortunately, there are always plenty of really cool Wrangler brand vintage Western shirts on the web, so check out these hand-selected beauties we have located...

LAUI KAI VINTAGE HAWAIIAN DRESS FLORAL PRINT SIZE 10

laui kai vintage hawaiian dress

This absolutely gorgeous vintage Hawaiian dress from Laui Kai of Hawaii is marked as a size 10 and is made of a soft satin-finish polyester fabric. The kimono-style dress has splits up the right and left side to show off a little leg and a quintessential hawaiian floral pattern that's got a classic retro vibe. It is used, but clean and ready to wear. There is one tiny hole on the front about halfway center (see last photo) and a torn seam at the center rear belt loop which is easily repairable. One button is missing on the front, but it does not really affect the design (see 3rd photo). There are a couple of small stains along the bottom hemline of the dress, but they camouflage pretty well in the fabric pattern. Overall, it will still look great with a small amount of work with a needle and thread (and a once-over with a steam iron). The dress is made of a satiny polyester with orange piping. Perfect for a romantic dinner at Trader Vic's or for making a commanding entrance at your next cocktail party! Actual measurements are as follows: 38.5 inches bust at widest point, 33 inches waist at narrowest point, 57 inches length down back from top of collar to bottom hemline. See photos below for detailed images of the actual product.

BEAU BRUMMMEL VINTAGE DEPARTMENT STORE BRASS DISPLAY RACK

vintage beau brummel tie rack

This heavy industrial vintage Beau Brummel department store clothing display stands 6.5 feet tall and has two rotating racks. The display rack is a genuine commercial piece, very heavy-duty, well-built, and able to withstand decades of use and abuse. It is constructed of thick steel tubing with solid wire racks. We think it was probably a Beau Brummel tie display rack, but it is versatile thanks to the bottom rack, which adjusts to any height (the top rack does not adjust). The top rack measures 21 inches in diameter at widest point and the bottom measures 26 inches. The display sign is made of a rigid plastic and has a nice retro screen print of the old Beau Brummel logo. The rack was definitely used, and it shows some scratches, chips and blemishes in the shiny brass coating. There are no dents or cracked/stressed/damaged metal.This very hard-to-find piece of collectible (and useable) advertising is up for sale...click here to view the live auction

VINTAGE RALPH LAUREN POLO SHIRT RETRO 1980s

vintage ralph lauren polo shirt

This new old stock vintage Ralph Lauren polo shirt has authentic retro 1980s style and is still mint unused condition, complete with the original Lord & Taylor price tag!

Its a totally preppie vintage Ralph Lauren polo with a poppy color scheme and slim fit that translates beautifully with modern style.

The 100% cotton fabric is soft and thin, perfect for warm weather. It has no stains or rips. As stated, this shirt is new old stock, and was still folded and pinned like a dress shirt when it was rediscovered. The original pinholes that held the shirt together at the department store were just removed, and four small pinholes are still visible on the bottom of the shirt (see last photo). I assume these will disappear after washing. Shirt is marked as a size Medium. This vintage Ralph Lauren Polo shirt sold fast, but loads of cool retro Ralph Lauren can be found on eBay!
