Hi, I'm a college student working on a research project involving vintage clothing and, more specifically, workwear. It would be of great help to me if I could interview anyone involved with this thread or the general interest. Please, message me or reply asap if interested, thanks!

1966 Norman Hilton x Princeton University - Class of 1941, 25th Reunion Jacket.
Triple Patch, 3 Roll 2, Swelled Edge Trad Goodness in a Fresco Weave
Sadly the Class of '41 patch has been removed, but the buttons and lining are still awesome enough on their own.
The unique Class of '41 sketching on the lining is a Princeton Tiger (dressed as Roosevelt) riding an exploding earth (dressed as Hitler)
Here's one Massachusetts-made American pair.
Pop on clothing over 100 years old and its fucking pristine. Like, PERFECT. Crazy. Hand work all over it.
Found the tailor's obituary. Apparently, he passed away only a few years after this jacket is dated. Immigrant from Austria. I love these little tidbit of history. Really makes finding stuff like this that much more intriguing.
