Hello and welcome to Vintage Shape!.
Before you keep scrolling down to more interesting stuff I would like to properly introduce myself. My name is Alex; I am a 24-year-old guy with a deep passion for “the good old ways” and I am the founder of Vintage Shape. Regardless of the reason you arrived with us, I hope that your stay here at VS has been the most pleasant so far.
In this page I will give a brief introduction to Vintage Shape; our story, ideals, and goals which shape our brand, so that you will have a unique and fulfilling experience with us.
The Story Behind Vintage Lifestyle
So my journey with Vintage Shape started with (no jokes) a pair of pants. I am a man that really enjoys the whole clothing industry. Sure, I’m not a model nor I attend really important fashion events, but I really like to have a wide variety of clothing so that I can dress well every time I go out. Mixing different parts of an outfit its really fun and rocking the complete package is even better.
As far as the ladies go, one of the things that really gets my attention every time I meet a new girl is her style. In my mind a girl who really knows how to dress up and that has the ability to combine any type of clothing, will score higher as far as my heart is concerned… but let’s not get carried away :).
Despite this, I never really paid attention to vintage clothing; in my mind I thought all the classic looks from the 50s all the way to the 90s were pretty much dead. That is until some time ago, when I saw a girl rocking some 80s style jeans combined with a casual t-shirt and a really old but undoubtedly nice haircut. I noticed that people were turning their heads around as if Madonna or Britney was walking next to them. She was the center of attention.
Soon after, I realized that even with the amazing hair that she had, her presence wouldn’t have been as strong as it was hadn’t she wore the proper outfit. The combination of an “outdated” and cool look was a real shocker to people’s eyes As some people say: “You are what you wear”.
With this in mind I created Vintage Shape. I wanted to create something that really stood out from the rest; something that felt that it was part of our society all along but that the majority of people were blind to it.
A shocker to both you and the surrounding people.
Why Promote Vintage Items?
The answer to this is really simple; people nowadays are lost in terms of the classics. I know – being a millennial myself – living in the 21st century we are surrounded by a lot of cool stuff like internet, modern cars, computers, you name it. However, many of these things indirectly contribute to a sheep like behavior; follow the popular bands, buy the latest phone, wear a specific type of clothing, all of these things shaped my vision.
I believe people should try new stuff that really resonates with themselves and not the mainstream media. An 80-year-old watch? fine there are many ways to rock it. A 60-year-old vinyl disc? Man, what a classic.
In the end, my job here is to assist you in your search for that “stand out version” of yourself. If it is by obtaining some classic products online, by all means I will do my best to help you.
