Members Only



The upside to packing up your childhood home? Finding your dad's Member's Only jacket that he accidentally shrunk in the wash. Add found college aviators from your study abroad trip to Scotland (oh Marks and Sparks, how we love thee)- and you're ready to roll...oooohh yeahhhhh...

That jacket is aces. Too bad reverse closet-raiding doesn't work for us guys...

Some of my favourite T-shirts are ones my dad wore as a teen, then "grew" (sideways, that is) out of them. Plus, then there's a real history in the clothes!

When I was little, I begged my dad to buy me a members only jacket like his! It is crazy to me that they are still making new stuff...your vintage one looks great!

I love the truly random things I find when I go back home. Things you didn't love enough to take with you suddenly take on a different appeal when you go back to them. Members only! Score!

That is one of my favorite things about visiting my parent's house! I always unearth some kind of forgotten treasure, and between us, this is often one of the main highlights of my visits home :~) AWESOME jacket.

Nice! I inherited a grey leather members only from a friend and feel like Michael Jackson when I wear it.

lisa said...

Hehe I'm sure my dad has one of those around.

finding forgotten stuff is AMAZING! I think I got rid of a jacket like that except it was a bergundy color.....so sad now

I keep finding MO jackets at Value Village, even bought one, but I don't think it's my thing. I wonder if anyone out there wants them and can't find them...

Your Dad must have been a styling dude! I have one of those Members Only jackets, too-- a shrunken fit (perhaps small men's or large boy's size) that my sister helped pick up in a thrift shop in California. I don't often wear it out, but I always feel so cool when I do. Especially with sleeves pushed up 80s style. Rock that look! :)

Oh if I only kept that members only jacket...
