I grew up in a smaller Northern California Sierra Nevada Gold Country town and following the adventures in this thread have inspired me to explore my hometown looking for clothing related relics when I visit.

Well I finally made my first trip back home after discovering this thread and was determined to have exploration adventure!

My wife and I stayed at a hotel that is located at what used to be a a stop for the Narrow Gauge Railroad Line. At my urging for us to explore, we went for a walk along abandoned railroad tracks that go through the hotel property.

We followed the tracks out into the woods and eventually came across an abandoned train stop depot and outbuildings with piles of trash/debris in and around them. After looking around for a bit I saw that was something hickory striped poking out of one of the trash piles!

Yelling with excitement, I pulled out a very dirty train engineers hickory striped railroad hat. Turns out it has a plastic adjustable band and looks to be from the 80’s but still a great first exploration hike...

More to follow next time I go up there... Thanks again for the inspiration!

^Forgive me, I've been out of the loop! Did you release a vol 2, or perhaps a mook recently? Would love to purchase if so :D

@Sansome
Hey good to hear! - this forum needs more pics of your vintage finds.
Yeah and what's with the (levis) book - is it completed yet, or are you guys still trying to find a publisher??

Doc.

Still working on the Levi book, 2016 was the best year to date- for finding wearable 1880's-90 clothing. We found 2 major Levi pieces last year......we have been finding most of the belongings of 2 miners/chloriders- anyways I'm sort of glad we haven't finished the Levi book yet- we keep finding new Levi pieces to add to the book- Schiffer will be the publisher- don't know if you ever noticed- Rin Tinaka's first 3 books are through Schiffer- I signed a three book deal with them back in 2008- Russ and Charla were left off that contract, so they were able to possibly sign wit another publisher......that's why my name was left off of our second book......and that's why Russ and Charlas name was left off of our first book.

I'll send you those fit pics of the 1890 Levis in my size- I know now that the watch pocket significantly grew in size- in 1890

Charla and Russ had their mook published last year- still waiting to hear back from the publisher- they are working on getting the mook, printed in English.....I don't have any copies of the American Overall mook left......but I do have a few copies of Jeans of the old west volume 2- let me know if you want one of those.

Urban Dictionary:
MOOK
"A term coined by Douglas Rushkoff in an episode of PBS's "Frontline" entitled "The Merchants of Cool." Mooks are archetypal young males (teens-early 20s) who act like moronic boneheads. They are self centered simpletons who live a drunken frat-boy lifestyle(or are frat-boys). Examples can be found anytime someone watches "Jackass." Rushkoff claimed that the media glorifies this ideal and stifles natural self expression, however, some people might argue teenage boys have always acted like morons(its actually a long-standing stereotype). Nonetheless, standardized conformist dumbass-culture behind a veneer of exhuberance is a scary notion indeed.

Opposite of Mooks are Midriffs; oxymoronic innocent skanks who are modeled after Britney Spears.
