Catch and Release: Beams Boy Hunting Jacket

September 29th, 2019

I spend a lot of time on ebay sleuthing pint sized sizes garments from Japan and Europe. Here’s a jacket from Beams Boy that I’m catching and releasing. It’s a style that frequently appears in the Beams mix in a range of fabrics (primarily poplin and cotton duck). I’m a sucker for the doll-sized hunting-esque jacket look, but I’m not a huge fan of the back belt or plastic buttons (miming the fancy fawn-embossed brass types you see on tyrolean wool tunics).

As you may know, I’m a petite woman. It’s nearly impossible for me to find the type of vintage and outdoor clothing that I love (hunting-inspired garb, waxed cotton jackets, french knitwear, etc.) in sizes that fit. And my Kondo-mission at the moment is to only only buy clothing that I would wear on a weekly basis (or I must release back into the ether). So I’m clicking like on this jacket, posting some visual evidence for future reference, and letting go. If you read this post in the next few days, it’s yours!

Beams Boy Office Style Fair

March 2nd, 2019

Office style, by Beams Boy

A spot check on the Beams Boy Instastory redirected me to this curious “office style fair” capsule collection. I’m still trying to put my finger on the persona or segment archetype represented by this clothing.

My guess: Jules and Jim meets Tokyo librarian.
