As our Archive Manager, Joseph probably feels he has fought in a few fashion wars at least ("I'll take you out if I don't get my hands on that Op art Pucci first"), but he's upped the fashion stakes now, by turning up to work in a WW2 Survival Vest! This treasure is a true style veteran that has been around since 1943 (making it older than my Nan!)  It may have seen battlegrounds across Europe and even the Korean war too, but Joseph's made good with some essential repair work on the seams! It's battle-ready for any soldier now needing to carry a compass, a bandage or a mosquito head net. Beat that foxes!  I don't know if the worn-down vintage Levi's and hiking boots he found in Cheshire Street can keep up! Though that nailed heart charm and beanie hat (a fleamarket find itself) are fighting on.
