This demand for history in a piece of clothing is stymied by the fact that there is a limited supply of stock and that finding items in good condition can be very difficult.

Menswear aficionado, Zachary DeLuca’s new Etsy store, Newton Street Vintage opens the door to a whole new era in shopping for vintage menswear.
