SPORT & fabrics (part 2)




GO GO GO !
Early 30's cord pants, 40's kid baseball suit, late 40's gaucho shirt, 50's gab shirt or surfer tee… samples of 3 decades of sports design printed fabrics…



























…and what about the 50/50 rayon and cotton 60's design style 
Mister Freedom "ACTION PACKED" shirt?
Of course "OSS CRICRI" knows what sport is and how to transcribe it
with the best Rock'n'roll style ;-)

SPORT & fabrics



Sport is good for health ?…
and what about style ?…is it good for Health too ?…
and…if style is the only sport for MR FCC ? what about sport in style…???
Sport in the 20's, 30's 40's and 50's has always been a source of inspiration for textile designers…
Art deco or bold style, on feedsacks, gabardine or rayon…vintage collectors can find shirts, jackets…and other great stuff about this theme…but you mean PRINTED you also mean rare and expensive… of course !!!!


Found 20 years ago, this 40's gab havana jacket/shirt is always one of Mr FCC's favourite…
Bakelite art deco buttons, pleated back, pointy collar and mixed sports design printed are not so easy to find 20 years after… you can trust in the OL'HUNTER…



















(oops…not sure that STYLE IS THE ONLY SPORT Mr FCC PRATICES…not sure…)

37J-1…THE ONE !


Since the A1 jackets fever, (Mister FCC is proud to be one of the first collector who sent informations about this model with some rare american guys as THE GREAT John Glucow… and japanese precursors), the native buttoned first short flying jacket is became sadly common and sometime, badly copied…Of course original ones are definitely for rich collectors or museums like this USN canvas model you all know … of course !!!!! BUT, have you ever seen one original 37J-1 JACKET ? with great patina, original label, patched or stencils…???



This man, (FARZAD SAMARI) did


This man too…


This man too…
and what about MR FCC?






Has he ever seen it ?














Has he ever touched it ?




Has he ever worn it ?
