Left Field NYC Pocket and Rat Tail Vintage Hair Combs


Part of what inspired Left Field NYC was how integral hair combs were in the 1940's and 50's. Image source: LIFE

Take one look at Left Field NYC (or just listen to their founder speak) and it’s clear what they stand for – US manufacturing, superior (read: vintage) production techniques, and a deep appreciation for 1950’s Americana style. Though many here may be more familiar with their range of raw denim options–including the more recent heavyweight 18 oz. Collect Mills denim–we’ve seen the Queens-based brand apply their craft to other facets of clothing.

Case in point: their new set of combs. Available in two styles and four colors, Left Field sought inspiration from the 1950’s greaser culture; a period where one’s hair was their best accessory and as such, a sturdy and well-balanced comb was an essential everyday carry item. In true form, Left Field tapped a US-based supplier, the “Unbreakable Factory”, that has been producing quality combs for more than sixty years.

Turning more to the specs, the basic Pocket Comb measures 5″ long, features two sets of teeth with differing thickness, and is offered up in black or tortoise for $3 per. For those needing a hair part, the Rat Tail Comb comes with an extended 3.5″ tail-like section and is available for $5 per in black or teal.
