Early 1900’s Grafton & Co. Pullover Shirt. Amazing find from

thegildedrage

For every modern piece I find, there is always one or two vintage pieces. Very rarely do I find something that is of significant age (over 70 years). Even rarer still is for the piece to fit me. Last week, while scouring one of my favourite locations, I came upon this beautiful green wool work shirt by local Hamilton clothing manufacturer Grafton & Co. Now a part of the Tip Top Tailors brand, the company began in 1858 in Dundas, Ontario and played an integral role in the area before being sold in 1960 to its parent company. Judging from the condition and construction, the piece seems to be from the 1910s-1920s. Finishing touches such as the very rudimentary mother-of-pearl buttons and a mixture of hand sewn and industrial edges speak of an age before heavy mechanation. This is a piece I will wear periodically because it is simply beautiful. Grail find.

Yes please! I’ll have one in this, blue, gray, and burgundy please.

I mentioned this in my pickups from last week. My dad used to have one and they were badass. Kept the coffee hot all day. This one was made in the US (Nashville to be exact and says on the bottom).  Nowadays, they are being made in China. The China ones are not as good according to Amazon reviews.  $3.

I once left mine completely full of blazing hot coffee on a Friday and forgot about it in the work truck. Hopped in Monday morning and it was still warm enough to drink. Amazing.
