Backyard Bill Shoots Father & Son Vintage Collectors Richard & Cosmo Wise

More great images from Bill Gentle. Here he shoots a couple of fellas who’ll be familiar to any Spitalfields Thursday vintage market regulars. Richard and Cosmo Wise sell and collect some of the most beautiful European vintage you’ll ever come across. Specialising in well-worn, repaired and re-repaired work clothes from France; heavyweight cords, moleskin jackets, beautiful faded blues, salt and pepper coats, as well as delicate eighteenth and nineteenth century womenswear, their studio/home in Hackney houses all kinds of treasure as well as providing a base for their own label De Rien, a mix of old fabrics and new cuts. Get to know these sharply dressed hobos in our gallery.
