This week's collection is comprised of vintage gray wools (some tweeds): skirts, vests, suits & blazers; some more distinct items: accessories speaking; and must-have pieces: a nude 100% cashmere sailor sweater and the perfect nude canvas tennis sneakers. These items, and more, will be available at 12 noon (e.s.t); shop here!

I am elated (!) to announce that Allen Co. will now be stocking menswear in the shop; a new vintage menswear collection will arrive on the 1st of every month! The men's section will be stocked with fine, wearable neutrals of the best fits and textiles; a.k.a., super curated. I'm being quite particular about the items I will be offering being they'll only be arriving once a month.
The first men's vintage collection will arrive this Monday, October 1st! It will only be comprised of four pieces because it happens to coincide with the arrival of the weekly Monday women's collection. The next one will be much larger - 20+ pieces larger :)
(And just in case you were wondering, that there is Lenny Kravitz's stage costume custom dress form - yes it is!)

|vintage cream 100% silk contrast button shirt vintage cream 100% silk brass button shirt|
The white t-shirt is now the white silk shirt; or maybe just a silk shirt. How many of these do you have? Seriously, I'd love to know because I have too many; likely ten beige colored ones alone. This is easy dressing! Available Monday, September 24th here!

|1980s vanilla silk pointed collar blouse 1950s olive silk pointed collar blouse|
Different colors; different eras. Both silk; both with petite pointed collars. I found these blouses on the same day; notwithstanding a few decades, they're both together and part of of next week's collection. Available Monday, September 24th!

I found this dress last winter and saved it for Halloween 2012. It's the perfect thing to wear for someone who doesn't do the "costume thing" but still wants to embody the spirit of the day; and elegantly at that. This 1940s black & orange wool knit dress is available here!
