Trains, Planes, and ... Kodachrome

Michael Williams at A Continuous Lean made a post yesterday about the glories of Kodachrome, and one of the guys who commented on Michael's post mentioned a site called "Shorpy: Always Something Interesting." The site is loaded with amazingly exposed 4x5 Kodochromes of train yards, plane yards, factory workers, general stores and the like - all from the early 1940s. MUCH more to come later about the men's clothing and lifestyle store I'm opening (with four other guys) in Austin this November, but it's photos (the clothing in the photos actually) like these that are so obviously the inspiration for many of the trends in menswear right now. Great stuff. Great photos:
