Whole wardrobe? Probably not, but you can get a decent start. Short time? Absolutely not. It's taken me a decade of hard core thrifting to asemble my collection. Even with hitting the thrifts regularly, there have been times when I've gone months without finding anything decent.

One of my favorite vintage suits--a 50's brown/black stripe flannel with Hollywood waist trousers.

Hello Vintage-

Thank you for the information..so can I ask you how long did it take you to find that Pendleton?

I found the jacket about four years ago--the only Pendleton Ike/Ricky jacket I've ever come across--and that represents several years worth of effort. On the other hand, Pendleton shirts are among the most common and easily thrifted of vintage men's clothes. Many of the larger thrift stores, particularly when winter is approaching, will have racks of plaid shirts, and it's not uncommon to find a Pendleton or two. One small piece of advice: Make sure you hold the shirt up to the light and search carefully for moth holes.

And, for your consideration, a quintet of vintage Pendleton shirts (40s - 50s):

All but the semi-formal trousers, which fit in my salad days.

We've got much more on the way. I've been trapped in the salt mines for the past couple of days (and a mini-vacation is coming up), but look for more installments after Thanksgiving.

This shirt is one of my favorites. It's a 1950's short-sleeve wool that I purchased some 11 years ago at a now defunct vintage shop on the Drag in Austin.

1930s tie rack. It's a little hard to make out from the photo, but the idea behind this contraption is that, befuddled by the prospect of putting together the right shirt/tie/suit combination, you use the dial on the rack to find those colors that blend harmoniously.
