A huge event on the Los Angeles Vintage calendar is Inspiration where the cream-of-the-crop world’s best vintage and heritage rag businesses gather for a stunning show in Southern California. Our buddy Eric Kvatek went to explore the treasures on display and on the floor at this massive annual event. You’ll see friends and new faces from all over the states as well as those who had hopped over from Japan like The Real McCoys, Clutch Magazine, J’Antiques, and local heroes like Hellers Cafe, Indian Motorcycles, Lewis Leathers, along with many newcomers who are imparting their own flavour on the show floor.

Today Ponytail Journal takes you back to the Vietnam War. Wars are merciless, though one could say that the money put into war technology has catalysed change, rippling through our civilised world in years following devastation. For people who are fascinated by vintage and military gear, can’t really avoid USMC timepieces. What about a field watch then? Does it have its own brick and mortar functions? Or sets of rules it runs by? YES! Holy moly does it have a lot! Songyi Yan takes us through the humble plastic wind-up.
