X-Post from thrift thread....

 

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)

That is so awesome words fail me. I'd love to see the patch, but almost better without it since you can wear it normally without the details making it into a costume piece.

Long time no post for this thread. Found these two yesterday and would love some other info on them. @Pierson v Post was kind enough to get me info on the medals for the top one, but the bottom one I cant find anything about. Im pretty sure that union label is from pre 1934, but cant seem to place the west point on the label with the real west point.

Ever wondered what kind of oxford shoes were worn at the beginning of the 20th century?

Here's one Massachusetts-made American pair.

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.

1950 bespoke cashmere overcoat. Tried researching for hours with no luck. Lost in the sea of tailors operating then. I've have thrifted just about every label out there and this has the most hand sewing of any garment I've ever seen. For $20 I wasn't going to let it die in a thrift shop.

Not Oxfords. Derbies or Bluchers because they have open lacing.
Awesome shoes !

Apropos of this, my uncle, who was co owner of a consumer electronics manufacturing company that dated from the 1930s,
had a lifestyle that I admired. He had a chauffeur, ate lunch a Peter Luger's Steak house ( in New York City) several times a week,
had a box at Yankee Stadium, and wore bespoke clothing. I worked for him for two summers during college. My Dad too was very
clothes-conscious and dressed well and wore an "old money" Ivy League, style despite being the son of impoverished immigrants.
He shopped at Rogers Peet and Brooks Bros. My Uncle dressed in a conservative version of the "Continental Style" popular as an alternative
to the then dominant Ivy-derived look in the 60s. His clothing came from D'Andrea Bros, which I thought had been a very prominent NY tailor.
It took a search of the NY Times obituaries to confirm this:

MARK D'ANDREA
ROCKVILLE CENTRE, L.I., April 12—Mark D'Andrea, who retired 10 years ago as president of D'Andrea Brothers, formerly custom tailors in New York, London, and Paris, died today at Mercy Hospital. He was 80 years old and lived here at 6 Judson Place.
