Nostalgia, and the never ending battle of trying to refrain from purchasing the new hyped in hunting clothes. I find my self digressing occasionally, and end up buying a pair of Sitka Timberline pants this summer, but only because they were half off. Haha, yeah, that's what I tell myself.I thought of this thread the other day. I've had an old red chamois shirt that I've worn hunting for over twenty years and is in dire need of a replacement, with the collar literally worn through and holding on by a few threads. I bought it at an old general store in Snowsville Vermont when I was in college; neat store with a gunshop, stacks of wool hunting clothes, a couple resident dogs, and a pot belly stove belching out heat in the middle. Maybe it was a touch of superstition, or maybe it was nostalgia, but I wanted to keep the same format. After some google searches I found very limited options beyond a few excessively priced ones (no shit one was $165!). Luckily I found one in a vintage shop in Wisconsin on ebay, $24. Maybe it just sat in someone's closet unused, or maybe it has already been on a few hunts. Either way I'm glad I found it and will probably look to ebay more in the future because apparently I qualify as one of the dying breed.
