    Years ago, I was in a country/rockabilly band in Austin, and as obsessed as I was with the sound of the ’50s, I was also obsessed with the clothes of that era. Eventually, I grew out of the phase, for a couple of reasons—I’m a slim guy, and the boxy-cut shirts and wide-legged pants seemed to magnify my less-than-studly physique. Still, I dig the look; this photo essay about those who walk the same walk is pretty cool:

    Don’t get me started on the rockabilly lifestyle. I’ve done one to many rockabilly festivals lol. The cars and the clothes are pretty dang cool, and I am a junk collector. I love old stuff, but man I don’t care to model my existence around the 1950’s. I think that all went out the window when I had kids. The music is hit and miss there is some great rockabilly music, there is also a lot of generic stuff. This is true in any genre though. I’m happy that there is a scene for this music, and happy the culture is strong. The photo essay is great. thanks for sharing
