Blast from the past

My grandfather is currently cleaning his house and he is making some wonderful discoveries in boxes that have remained unopened for 30 years. Look what he sent me the other day:

Gaiters! Original, leather gaiters worn by my mom when she was four. So obviously, I won't be able to wear them (actually, they were sent to me for my daughter), but this costumer gets to look at them up close and see how they are made. (For those of you interested, the brand, printed in gold inside the top of the foot, is Packard.)
I love vintage clothes and accessories!


  1. Mais c'est quoi en français ? Toujours ben pas des guêpières ?

  2. Mais non, on appelle ça des guêtres!
