Vintage design is all too often overdone or just plain silly (we’re looking at you, Chevrolet SSR), but there are still many new products inspired by old successes that carry on the spirit of their predecessors. The best incorporate tradition and pedigree into an everyday, useable package, proving that sometimes the old way of doing things is better than the new. Historical appeal aside, the aesthetics of these items alone throw us into a fit of nostalgia. For our latest installment of Elements we’ve compiled our favorite vintage-inspired products that are the next best thing to traveling back in time.
