From time to time I'll pop into the Buffalo Exchange located in one of my college towns to sell some things I think their customers would appreciate. If you're not familiar with B.E., they're located throughout the United States and they sell new and recycled fashions...including vintage. It's a great way to clear out your closet, but be forewarned, they do not take just anything. They have a very specific criteria, so this isn't the place to do a closet dump. On this particular sell, they were interested in lightweight jackets, 70s inspired jeans, tees, and some other garment choices.
Needless to say, on this particular day, I SCORED big time! While the Buffalo Exchange associates were going through my merchandise to see what they would take, I found the to-die-for jacket I'm wearing in this post - a vintage 1960s Tuxster All Purpose. Tuxster was popular in the 60s for their pintucked, lightweight coats (I did my research). It just goes to show - when you keep your eyes open, you can find the coolest garments in the most unexpected places. While I waited in line to make my trade, I overheard two young ladies standing behind me commenting on the coat, "Oh wow, that's a cool coat." I have to agree😀 I hope you enjoy the pics, and please stay to the end for the contest announcement and the Sartorial Savvy.
