A discussion in the thrift bragging thread made me realize I need to put this caveat in here:

Union tags are helpful, but they are only a general guide. Earlier tags were sometimes used after their replacements had been introduced if a particular tailor or factory had a bunch of the old ones laying around. The only thing a union tag will tell you for sure is that the garment wasn't made prior to when they started using that label.

In other words, you can use a union tag to establish a not-earlier-than date of manufacture, but not a precise date or a not-later-than date.

I can provide evidence to back this up....Union tag indicates the later part of '62-'76, but maker tag is dated 1980.

Low volume operations like custom tailors would be especially prone to that, I would think.

The old Stetson Shoe Factory I believe is a combination of housing and shoe museum.

I have been collecting 40s luggage I see to trade or sell as it is used a lot for vintage shop fitouts Down Under.

The extended into the vamp round captoe ventilated spectator is pure early 50s.

Wow, I can't believe this is the first time I've seen this thread. It's going to get me back on SF with some more frequency. Amazing stuff!

Here's some vintage jackets I picked up recently (with the exception of the 4 button cuff one, that's a recent PRL by Corneliani), they're by BB, J. Press, and Southwick.

+1. I think that label is from at least the '30s, if not older.

I have sent photos of the back marks of the buttons to a button appraiser to get an approximate date on those. I found some Norfolk Hunting Club buttons on ebay with the exact same back marks. The NHC has been around since 1895, so I suppose they could be from around that time...or more recent of course.

Hello,

I recently purchased a vintage coat and which seems to be a bit mysterious.
The tag says Georg Blitz 1972, which leaves me no hits on the web what so ever. There is a golden button on the inside which says Friedrich Linden, Luedenscheid. This name leaves me with a guy that made buckles and buttons for the nazis and a cameramaker.
Does anybody in here have a clue about the origin of this coat? Or where I could seek help?

In advance, thanks!

I'm going to agree with you here. It's amazing that people throw away or donate stuff like this, when it should be in a museum. Gmmcl's Huntsman too.

I should clarify. It was found in an antique shop, not a thrift store....but was 50% off.
