Sartorial Finds from Decades Past

Sinatra. Dean. Bond. Your most frequently emulated style icons tend to fall into the "classic" category.

So if you look past the initially unimpressive façade of The Way We Wore Pop-Up Store, you're likely to unearth some notable vintage panache.

For the last few years, the women in your life have been stopping into the original La Brea shop that birthed the pop-up for vintage, red carpet-worthy Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Halston.  (There's even a secret library for burned-out fashion types to find inspiration.) Proprietress Doris Raymond opened the pop-up in January to pare down her formidable stock...and the menswear formerly locked up in her San Francisco warehouse begins trickling in next week. (Supply should be fully in place by March 8 and the entire store vanishes come May.)

Amid the tightly packed wares, you might unearth classy tweed blazers from the '50s, double-breasted suits from the '40s and Beacon blanket robes from the '20s. Dig further for hats from famed milliner Lilly Daché, suits from Town-Clad, and ties, suspenders and (unworn) socks and shoes that revise the meaning of the word "originality."

After all, recycling is important.
