Today is a guest post from Chas who writes the Oneupmanship blog. He lives in the UK, likes to hike/ramble and does a fair bit of cycling on his very cool vintage racer. More importantly, Chas is a big collector of vintage outerwear. You should definitely check out his expansive collection on his flickr page.
I thought it would be interesting to get his perspective on why he appreciates vintage outerwear so much before we head into a week of the new and technologically advanced gear coming from Outdoor Retailer.
