Guess I can't get mad at another local since I get out so infrequently these days, but still..STAY OUTTA MA TERRITORY! Wrong.This, except "cutaway" is the term for the morning coat. "Swallowtail" is the slang term for evening tail coats like this. Would have originally had matching pants. Though orphans are just as frequent in formal wear as anything else.
I'd have guessed '60s on ATLjon's JAB tweed, based on the narrow lapels. But it could be '50s.
IIRC I also sold one for $150, one of the silk limited edition ones.

This union label often trips people up. There were two major unions that produced menswear in the 20th century, the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America (ACWA) and the United Garment Workers of America (UGWA). 90%+ of the union tags you'll see are ACWA, and those are the ones we see in this thread and are used to using to date clothing. ACWA tags have a sewing machine and shears on them and were revised in 1933, 1939, 1949, 1962, and then 1976 when ACWA became UNITE...

I completely agree. Getting these tapered is on my to-do list.Very active, but not a minister. I am sort of the ministerial equivalent of someone with a law degree who's never taken the bar exam.
