Alexander Marchesan, exhibitors at the vintage fair Back Ahead this coming weekend. Tell me, what has gotten you to set out on a vintage fair?
-It is actually a project that lasted a few years. I have noticed a very large interest and therefore started to gather at me different vintage garments. In the past I have kept it all to myself, but now that I have a large enough inventory that I want to reach out with it seriously. The goal is to eventually open a shop. Have even bought into a lot of older retail store which made to my apartment, rather reminiscent of an outfitter than home right now.
How would you describe your range?
-I deleted all the time from what I like. For costumes is the very 20 to 50. Otherwise, there is everything from neckties from e. Marinella and Borrelli to shoes from Church’s and Allen Edmonds. The idea is not to focus on any particular decade, but I want to offer a range of great timeless men’s fashion.
Why this fascination with vintage?
-It all started at a party. I had purchased a 40 ‘s costume after seeing myself in the mirror, I realized that I have never been so well dressed. Then I started thinking why don’t I always dressed like this. After having gained knowledge and read on, interest in the plant. It’s a very genuine feeling. Like today, I have with me an amazing 50-talskostym. I would buy a new suit for the same quality price tag would end up on a completely different level.
How do you experience the male interest in vintage clothes?
-Think in General that it is higher among girls, but the range of mens vintage mirrors really do not interest. Today turns 90% of supply to girls. I definitely think that there is a larger market for guys. It is also an important reason why I started this. There is not a vintage store that focuses on classical men’s fashion with the brands that I sell.
What are your tips for those who want to buy Second Hand?
-When it comes to vintage clothes for ladies, I usually always start with the jacket. A Blazer is always more difficult to adjust to is not the good one, it is often just to forget. The same goes for jackets. Then it becomes a bit experienced and know what to look for. I usually check out various laundry tags and labels to see from what time the garment comes from. Another tip is to know the feed in the pockets. Costumes from the 50 ‘s or older have never synthetics in their pockets.
How do you tag in all the clothes?
-It varies a bit depending on the garment. I have contacts in the United States and United Kingdom where I mainly bought shoes from Allen Edmonds. Since I’ve actually bought a lot of vintage watches from a urhandlare in Argentina. In parallel with that, I have vacuumed Stockholm Second Hand range after such garment that I myself would like to sell.
What is your personal favorite vintage clothing?
-Must say a wristwatch from Girard Perregaux (1955). Similar to design very much of IWC’s modern clocks with very stylish and minimalist shape. Will also bring some really stylish watches from from just Perregaux at the fair. Otherwise it is probably my favorite garment a Borsalino Como which I bought in New York.
