Polaroid factory jackets the picture of vintage

The Impossible Project is open for business and you can buy film or accessories there--even vintage Polaroid factory jackets.

The Impossible Project, a cadre of fussy men who've managed to manufacture new film for Polaroid instant cameras, is open for business. Forget the film; check out these super-snazzy vintage factory jackets!

OK, don't forget the film just yet. There's a wide range of cameras and film available at the online store, but it ain't cheap. A special-edition Polaroid One with a single pack of film costs $180. And despite the fact that I was pretty hard on The Impossible Project in the past, I find myself inextricably drawn toward a purchase. (You can find a used Polaroid One on eBay for around $30, though, so don't feel like you've got to buy the new shiny one.)

If you already have a Polaroid instant, you can buy film or accessories--even those $81 Polaroid factory jackets found in the vaults of the former Polaroid factory in Enschede, located in the Netherlands. If they weren't already sold out of x-large, I'd buy one in a heartbeat.

Oh, nostalgia, you fickle temptress! I will placate myself with the dozens of camera applications on my iPhone that emulate old film stock just fine.
