This Old Thing? Reused Men's and Womenswear Hits Boston This Weekend
As we wait to see what sorts of re-used umbrella couture our Umbrella Inside Out entrants come up with, we like filling readers in on favorite old-to-new designers. Lucky Bostonians get to see the goods in person in a big way this weekend when Brooklyn-based This Old Thing? masterminds Roy Caires and Tommy Cole take their wares north. Sunday's not-to-miss overflow sale will feature over 500 pieces at prices belying their intricately reconstructed origins. If you've always wanted to see yourself or your boyfriend in one-of-a-kind duds, but balked at the prices, this is your day. "Every designer seems to be imitating vintage in their collections and charging an arm and a leg for it. This is how you get the look for real cheap, and it's the real deal," Caires tells the Boston Herald.
