Vintage Inspiration: Jantzen
Today I found an amazing Jantzen swimsuit for the shop and I was reminded about how iconic Jantzen is for mid-century swimwear. Jantzen was and is based here in Portland Oregon so I find a lot of great vintage Jantzen pieces at estate sales and elsewhere. It wasn't just a big brand in Portland though, Jantzen was THE piece swimwear and knit brand during the 1950s all over the United States. I love their advertising almost as much as their swimsuits. Here are a few of my favorites, they all make me so excited for swimming at my family's lake house and going tubing at the river with friends this summer.
