Workware Heritage Clothing Clothing’s Circle of Life

[09/09/13] 

In the words of Scottish philosopher and satirical writer Thomas Carlyle, “trust not the heart of that man for whom old clothes are not venerable.” Whether it’s your old boys tie, a battered pair of one stars you can’t bear to bin, a lucky trucker hat that expounds your willingness to stop for blondes, or the prized – and now almost transparent – Zero t-shirt from your first Pumpkins concert, we can all appreciate the timelessness of clothing. These are hallmarks from a different era, one where garments were made to last and style was about practicality and not Project Runway.

Workware Heritage Clothing Company has a decade’s experience collecting up those nuggets of past fashion gold and selling them…you guessed it, on Taobao. If you were ever considering taking a local lover, have her do the translating as you scroll through a collection punctuated with vintage workwear, denim, surplus military kit and even Japanese reproduction clothing. Alternatively, check out their store in Causeway Bay where they have everything from shirts and slacks to sneakers and backpacks. Perfect for the nostalgically-inclined or for gift ideas; think of it as giving clothing from a golden era one more go on the merry-go-round of life.

What was, will be again.
