New Arrivals: Billykirk

Amish Country Pennsylvania 
Billykirk is hand made, much of the work is done by an Amish community in Pennsylvania.

Chris - Working with these Amish leather workers for a week will really open your eyes.  They are not distracted by anything the world's marketing machine is currently pumping out.  They have no idea who the Rolling Stones are or that we are at war.  It is essentially the 1870's, aside from the hum of a large Honda generator looking out of place in one of the corners.  They are allowed to use gas since it is from the earth.  
Kirk – We bring the kids gum and they will literally chew the same piece all day.  I asked one of the boys what his favorite flavor was.  Taking it out of his mouth and pointing to it he said,  “The brown kind.”

Carryall in small medium and large

Two pocket card cases

Belts, so many beautiful belts

Leather journal that comes with an aquabee sketchbook

All of these items will be available online soon. In the meantime please feel free to get in touch if you have inquiries:

Also, Lova and Chimala have just rolled in. They will be ready to sell this afternoon.

Introducing at Lark: LEVI'S Vintage Clothing

In 1947 The post-war version of the 501® jeans starts coming off the production line. The cinch is gone forever, the rivets are put back on the watch pocket and the Arcuate is now stitched with a double-needle machine which gives it the “diamond” shape at the point where the two lines
of stitching meet. This creates the uniform look of the Arcuate, which is in contrast to previous years, when the single needle application gave each Arcuate design a unique appearance, depending on the skill of the operator.


The first television commercial for Levi’s jeans is aired.
The rivets are removed from the back pockets and replaced with bar tacking. This is due to the fact that the strong rivets eventually wore through the denim, exposing them and causing the problems that led to their being covered back in 1937: scratching furniture.

We are working to make these available online. If you can't wait drop us a line:
