Shopping from Olympic National Park (n.d.)

Evidence that perfectly realized heritage collections for women (including belts, breeks, hats, jackets, shirts, boots and accessory ukuleles) have already been manufactured, marketed and buried in the past.

The girl in the johdpurs and ski cap...I bet she was a real blast to go camping with, and even more fun to talk to as an old lady.

Don't know why, just a feeling I have.

Great photos.

Giuseppe--

I totally agree! For a participant in a vintage photograph, she seems incredibly contemporary (like a student on campus here)(but wearing uggs not jodphur pants).

Bring back jophurs as campuswear!

So refreshing to see heritage clothing images for women. Brilliant.

Hi! I stumbled upon your blog from my boyfriend's recommendation. I like all things outdoorsry, especially style, and I am psyched that you posted about women's heritage clothing. I love how menswear is shifting back to the classic outdoors, and I keep wishing for something similar in women's fashion. More utiliarian and rugged, but still feminine.
