I'm just guessing here, but I suspect this 1970s vintage George Best Boutique sweater is one of the few surviving items from the store, owned by the iconic footballer.
A few years back, these type of polos were doing big money on the vintage circuit. Then the company got wise to it and reissued the Fred Perry textured knit polo shirts.
Tarantula Clothing have cut their niche in the fifties look clothing market by favouring an edgier rockabilly style, always ideally toeing the line between trashy and glamorous. This Hollywood Starlet Tee is their latest design, with a simple but effective retro chic.
The high crew neckline along with t-shirt sleeves keeps things simple and almost demure, while the irresistibly figure-hugging cut makes sure to amp up the pin-up appeal. Available in a range of surefire patterns and shades, this is a retro separate that will serve any fifties lover's wardrobe well.

Warmer weather may be just around the corner for most of us, but that doesn't rule out the room for stylish knitwear in your retro wardrobe just yet. Especially when we're talking about items as stylish as these Retro Sweaters from Sonia by Sonia Rykiel.
The skinny knit tops both start with a slim and feminine silhouette, with a classic crew neck to finish. But it's the subtle addition of fifties motifs that makes these stand out, borrowing from 50s tattoo imagery with both the cherry and anchor emblems. Ideal for a more relaxed nod to retro style, these jumpers are the sort of item you'll wear with everything.
Available now from Matches Fashion in the UK, they're both priced at £208, with the striped option in two colour choices.
Many of mainstream fashion's interpretations of the fifties pin-up look rely on a very literal interpretation, amping up the sex appeal. This Anchor Honeycomb Cardi from Sonia by Sonia Rykiel uses more subtle elements, to create a retro piece with versatility.
The cream boating jacket provides an ideal base for cute nautical details like captain's jacket style buttons and an anchor motif. The result provides a piece of outerwear that can be adapted for a number of retro styles, from fifties to eighties looks.
It's available online in the UK from My Wardrobe for £301.
