AVANT Magazine Issue 4 – An Anthology of American Workwear Part 2

£25.00

AVANT Magazine Issue 4: An Anthology of American Workwear Part 2 is dedicated to American Workwear and is a sequel to the first issue, which was published in February 2019. In it, there is the story of Chinese immigrants during the Gold Rush, the discovery of rare Levi’s pants from 1880 in a California mine, and of these details which collectors love, like vents holes on work shirts, or the famous “chinstrap.” Levi Strauss & Co.’s former historian, Lynn Downey, also looks back on her journey, while Taiwanese vintage aficionados explain why vintage is rising in Taiwan. AVANT also converses with Akira Tsuchida, owner of Japanese store Mushroom Vintage, and Michael Harris, the author of Jeans of the Old West. Each story lets us dive into the history of the United States and offers a modern perspective on the way these clothes have influenced the course of history and continue to interact with our society today.

AVANT Magazine is a collection of vintage clothing anthologies founded and compiled by Eric Maggiori. The biannual magazine celebrates the story of vintage clothing in the past, present, and future, covering workwear and military clothing from around the world.

Eric is one of the world’s foremost collectors of vintage workwear and military clothing and each issue of AVANT zeroes in on a specific area of his collection. Issues include US military clothing, American workwear and French workwear and each issue is full of amazing photography of the rare pieces in Eric’s collection.

Because of the desire for the magazine to be a piece of art and a lifestyle object, each issue comes with a specially commissioned drawing or painting for the front cover.
