Just picked up this interesting 1970s GANT chambray popover from Zach at Newton Street Vintage. A slightly odd mix of 60s style S/S pullover shirt and chambray work shirt, but nevertheless one that looks like it works. 1970s GANT collars were usually great, and this one has the requisite third collar button and locker loop.
No makers label remaining but the RN number shows it’s a product of the Palm Beach Company, GANT’s 70s parent. I’m sure Gant Archives would have loved to get hold of this one with its beardy workwear undertones…
One to put away for summer 2012, but you gotta buy it when you see it with this stuff!
Newton Street Vintage can be found here and is highly recommended.
