    I found two interesting pieces. I think they are modern but they also have an 80s feel. What are your opinions?

    Surf shorts. I love the nod to Lichtenstein! Edit. I see the company started in 1991.



    Dress. I am sure Le Chateau was around in the 80s. Are they still in business? I know the store in the mall here closed. Edit. 1959! That was a surprise.

    I think these are both from the 1990s.

    The shorts are modern. I definitely remember them and other Volcom items with similar prints just a few years ago.

    Thanks, I kind of thought so but board shorts are always so full of designs that I find it difficult to date them. You know how paisley shouts 1960s, there are no set design markers like that in board shorts, or at least I can't differentiate decades.

    They began in Montreal, Quebec in 59
    here is the history and they are still in business...

    Their Montreal shop actually had s a small section that offered vintage clothing for a brief time back in the late 1970s. I remember going to check out those racks quite frequently.

    We used to call them 'Le Crapeau' in the early 80s because their stuff fell apart after a few wearings, or one cleaning!
    nsweezie and StitchesandSnags like this.
