The search is on…

IMG_1821

I’m trying to find a vintage posing strap or pouch. I’ve been really inspired by some vintage photos I’ve seen lately and I’d like to have a go at my own photo set. I’ve found some current pouches butΒ what I really want is a genuine vintage one.

If you have any idea where I can get one please let me know. The search so far has only turned up new ones.

In the meantime I have a wishlist here if you’d like to send me a current one.

    When in the late 70s I met Bob Mizer of AMG in LA he told me his mother made all the pouches , they used to get through quite a few as they got torn off in the filming , not that we ever saw that .He used the pouches to enable him to publish, little did he realise they hightened the sexual aspect of the photos.

      Thats a cool story, I love his work and some of the photography is beautiful. I’d love to be able to try it myself if I could just find a genuine pouch or something at least similar.

    They were made from white cotton handkerchiefs which were cut to a shape stitched up then elastic for the waste band which against was a simple stitching job then one last piece of elastic from crutch to waist band done cost about 1$ . His mother made them because all the filming was done on a back yard to the house where he lived and she did not like to see naked boys running around. It was a regular farm yard animals every where.
