Found the Gianni Varsace coat at a thrift store a while back. It's full canvased and the Greek key buttons are amazing (missing one tho) had to get it. Broke that bank at a whopping $7.50 wink.gif

Awesome! I have a repro Pinarello wool jersey, but it's nowhere as nice as this.

Custom-cut Brooks Brothers from 1972. Lapels are still done in a reasonable width. The most notable aspect is the heavenly cloth, this jacket is done in a hearty calvary twill! 3/2 roll, sack, etc... 42 Short. angry.gif









Where's the HSM guy? This jacket is done in an incredible wool that feels and looks just like raw silk. Dig that action back! 46 Regular

Hello all!

Does anyone have any information on this label? It's slightly damaged - or, at least the white thread is, the label is not torn or anything. I am asking because I have no idea even of what it actually says, and there is no information on the internet that could help me...

What would the collective knowledge of the vintege thread say about the decade? My tailor and I reckon it's late 30s - early 40s.


 

It's from a evening dress suit I acquired. More photos in the spoiler:

First Chipp piece I found that didn't have the date on the inner tag, I'm thinking 60's, possibly 70's but you would think the lapels would be a hair wider.

And another piece from about the same period, maybe a little older even.

 

Katz Clothes (Baltimore 1910-20's) U-Lapel Waist Coat, Fully Lined/Canvassed. Mostly.... if not all.... hand sewn.

Brooks Brothers used to have three departments that did what we call customization. The was full custom/bespoke with the 'custom' label, and also with the main line there was the 'special order' department that was MTM. 346 was a junior or starter line, with no relation to the current outlet store house label. "Special Cutting" was MTM for 346. I've sold a lot of mainline and 346 tailored clothing from this period and it's hard to tell the difference.

HSM held a very high standard until the seventies. Your suit looks like it dates from the late sixties, so congrats.

I've picked up my fair share of HSM pre 70's, and it is hard to get appreciation for them these days.  I feel as if HSM had lost its "Aw" when it took a turn in the 70's -80's.
