Marc Chevalier, the vintage menswear expert


March 5, 2014 by Ville Raivio

Marc Chevalier is on a mission. Raiding vintage tombs both online and in real life, he aims to uncover the lore and craft behind the men’s clothing of the past century. Particularly all things concerning American style. While he declined to take part in Keikari’s interview series without explanations, I’ve been reading his extensive and detailed posts on The Fedora Lounge and similar vintage communities for several years. Mr Chevalier knows the obscure, the nearly forgotten and the many makers and merchants now long gone. Should the reader have any questions, he need only ask on Facebook’s clever Ask a Vintage Menswear Expert page. There are no secrets — just things not yet found.
