Speaking of Hemingway, did anyone see Midnight in Paris? The funniest line is when Hemingway goes "Who wants to FIGHT?!" Don't normally laugh out loud at Woody Allen, but for that little vingnete, I made an exception.

I absolutely adore this jacket. I have something like it but with a tighter check. Fabulous!

Ok, so not nearly as cool as Chet's sport coats, but I've got here this Mad Men era complete glen plaid sharkskinish suit made by Campus. 1/3rd lined, unstructured, un-darted with dual vents, flat front and cuffed pants and the best part, it fit me right off the rack. I tend to like my stuff on the slimmer side, which usually means having the trousers tapered at the bare minimum but I didn't have to do that with these. A true vintage 60's slim cut suit. And in mint condition I might add.

This style represents a "conservative" version of the "Continental Style" which co-existed with the
Ivy-League Style during the early mid-sixties. An example of the Hollywood version of the Continental
Style may be seen in the original film , Oceans 11" (1960) I never watched Mad Men very much, but I
am put off by the fact that the pure Ivy style is not well represented. I lived in New York at this time
and remember that at lunch hour the Madison Avenue-types flooded the streets ( around Madison Ave.)
and the the hard core Ivy Trad look was predominant. At the time, in fact, my impression is that a disproportionate
percentage of Mad Ave. execs were actualy Ivy League and Northeastern elite college ( Amherst, for example) grads.

They used to hire English majors, didn't they? smile.gif

These aren't crazy, but they're interesting and old.

 

 

The union tag puts this Harris Tweed between 1949 and 1962.

 

 

 

 

Same date range for this:

 

 

 

 

 

 

And I still have no ideas about this one other, but it seems old

I'm guessing 1940s Brooks Brothers tie found at a thrift several months ago.  I'm guessing 1940s since it's very similar in length, cut, etc. as what I've seen in ties from WWII US uniforms.

The Palm Beach is late 50s after they changed the famous cloth and label. The 1940 one has me confused as the lapel style has nothing to do with 40s. Is it some type of dinner jacket? The Harris just shows how much better it was made years ago.

Thanks for the info. All the pieces are extremely well made, but I've now come to the conclusion that on the blazer, the 40 refers to the size, not the date. I think it's some sort of military something or other. Who knows?

 

Any guesses a more specific vintage for the tweed?

Hmmm, 1/2 lining? Summer wear probably.

 

Patch pockets, notch lapel, and uncovered buttons? Doubt it's a dinner jacket or even a stroller.

 

Single color [or bold stripes] and lacking of "sporting features'" such as specialized belts, pockets, and action back seams? Probably not a sports jacket.

 

 

A single button single breasted blazer for summer wear? Maybe. I like a single button design for single breast two button cuts, since the lower one is almost always vestigial.

 

Is it black as appear in the top pictures or navy as it appears in the detail picture of the button? 

 

Either way, methinks it is a summer blazer.once worn as daywear with khaki, cream, or white chino pants or shorts or the same in linen, but most likely worn with anytime a dinner jacket wasn't required with summer weight white or cream flannel pants.

 

Summer weight flannel pants are the bomb, if you want to look sharp. And white flannel is amazing stuff.
