We are looking for bags etc to store everything properly but first we will document and photograph it all. Maybe we can get you in to help us out...

During the war the factory was repurposed to make uniforms for the military; some of the items predate the company (which was founded in 1887) and we are trying to figure out where they came from.


I want to know more about this suit. Particularly what size it is and if it's for sale. :fistbump:

 

Seriously, though, I'd love to see more pictures of that suit.

I'm afraid it's not for sale, but when we photograph the garment details I will of course share them.

Yeah, I got that; I was only joking about the for sale part. :)(I would however buy it without a second thought if it was indeed for sale!)

 

I'm really looking forward to those pictures. Seeing as I'm a pro photographer, I'd love to help out with the photography and be able to see the suits in person, alas I'm on the other side of the world...

That HSM archive is incredible, a testament to centuries of menswear. Please do share with us as you go about your journey! biggrin.gif

Here's a real gem - a 60's-era GANT Hugger with all of the Ivy details and unlined collar. I wish that they'd make a shirt like this today...

The button in the back of the collar fad started in the 50s, I think.
Purist snobs such as myself went for BB and J Press shirts precisely because they didn't
have back buttons, Back buttons denoted parvenu status.

Definitely a riding coat. Back is cut like a morning, or frock, coat, but a sport material, and much shorter skirt. from the front darts, and angle of the skirt from the waist, I really have a hard time seeing it as anything but a female garment. If it didn't start life that way, a well endowed woman has given it an operation, and it has found its true self.

That would be my size... sadly I cannot currently justify a second casual fall jacket.

This is cool. It came in on consignment from a family whose 92 year old father/grandfather had passed. It looks like a chore coat or factory smock but it's from the Holdsworth cycling company in England, c. mid-1930s. We managed to find something very similar listed in their 1939 catalogue, right at the bottom of the page under Lightweight Jackets / Linen Tissue.

^ If that's you in the photo I hope that you're keeping the jacket. It fits wonderfully and has an incredible history!


Dig these NOS 60's-era Irish Linen and Rayon blend Pants. An unmatched orange color that's not too orange, with a very tapered leg (8.25") considering the waist (adjustable 38-40.")
