We are noticing a lot of vintage details coming back into fashion nowadays. Style picks like the Aviator glasses, suede trench coats , panama hats, bell bottoms are bringing us back into the suave era of the Cary Grants and Gregory Pecks . In fact, vintage designs are produced even today, by high end designers like Chanel, Thierry Mugler, Marc Jacobs, Versace, etc and are highly sought after by many.
We had a wonderful chance to ask Karan Bangera, founder of “The Gentleman’s Community”, a page that provides men’s Sartorial Inspiration to share with us, how the men of today can adopt vintage clothing into their wardrobe.
3 Ways to style yourself with a Vintage Flair :
- Own a Vintage biker Jacket
A great biker Jacket is an investment piece that could last you forever. Instead of spending money on a brand new leather jacket, explore the stores and find a vintage leather jacker. Leather only gets better with age. It becomes softer and develops more character. Tag it with a plain white tee , fitted jeans and leather boots.
Alternatively, if you can’t find a vintage jacket, try brands like Diesel or AllSaints that produce the traditional style biker leather jackets for men.
- Get a tailor made Double Breasted Suit
“The glamour and heritage of the overlapping suit jacket is the quintessential gentleman’s style.”
Be different.Bring back a classic look that should never have disappeared to begin with.To pull of this look, always opt for broader peak lapels and tag it with a boutonniere (floral decoration worn by men, typically a single flower or bud, wiki) or a lapel pin.
This bad boy outfit is perfect for a wedding or a dressy event / night out. Not only does it show sartorial mastery, but reflects true self-confidence in your daring departure from the norm. You are sure to get compliments, so make sure you have some witty responses ready and not something outrageously cheesy – “I like my suits like I like my women – double-breasted”.
- Hat is the New Black
Vintage hats are popular men’s accessories either for historical memorabilia or renewed fashion vogue. Trends come and go, but the past always finds a place of interest with the people especially when it comes to fashion. There are many hats to choose from. For starters invest in a quality Panama or a Fedora. Keep in mind that Panamas are typically for summers and fedora is to keep you warm in winters.
As a general rule, men should remove their hats when indoors, at work, at a restaurant or at the movie.

He started doing exhibitions and selling stuff that he collected from his travels abroad. He also sources his vintage collections from vendors all over the world.
