Old School Cool Garb?


Aconcagua

Recommended Posts

From head to tow what is some "old school cool" hiking/climbing garb? I remember as a little kid seeing climbers in Yosemite wearing corduroy (I think) knickers. Big heavy boots. Pendelton wool shirts. These foldable, lightweight wool felt hats (havent seen them in many years.)

If anyone here knows about certainly climbing garb from the past that really screams "serious old school cool" I would appreciate hearing about it. Thank you.

Nostalgia!  Oh, for the good old days!

Some of the gear remains extremely serviceable even today.  Especially wool garments.  I have an vintage alpinestock that served me very well until my recent conversion to trekking poles.
