  1. I just got a bunch of deadstock late 70’s Frostline Kits, sew it yourself goosedown vests/jackets from ebay…next a sewing machine-nice post.

  2. I coveted those leather Raichle boots as a child. I dreamed they’d be my first pair. Unfortunately, I got Raichle cloth ones. They did last forever, but the color scheme was tragic.

  3. Somewhat like Diplomatica, I aspired to full leather hiking boots for summer camp but ended up with Nike brand, rainbow flair, 80s-eram “going outside” boots. Where have all the vintage Danner and Raichle boots gone?

    And perhaps it’s time to revive sew it yourself kits as a form of home commerce for those of us who do not knit.
