Portrait No 2 – Andrew, Purveyor of Fine Vintage Menswear

4 Comments

I’m feeling rather pleased with myself to have managed to shoot two people this week for my project ! Andrew came to me via a friend suggesting my project to his partner and is exactly the sort of person I hoped this project would lead me to, someone doing something that is not only a passion but is also a little unusual.

Andrew has a fantastic vintage menswear business, grown from his own love of men’s vintage clothing and habit of buying vintage outfits its developed into a business where he sources high quality outfits and launders, presses and repairs them if necessary before selling at vintage fairs and online.

When I heard about Andrew’s business and saw his website I really hoped that he also lived his business and I certainly wasn’t disappointed when he answered the door in vintage attire !

Andrew’s thoughts on whether developing the hobby into a business has spoiled the hobby – some of the necessary business side can feel like a chore but he can’t imagine ever doing anything else (except maybe music!!).

Andrew’s website is www.froggywentcourting.co.uk and he is also on Facebook.
