Awesome thread, Spoo! I don't wear it much either, but I love looking at it.

I recently posted this coat in the thrift thread , but it might fit best here. This coat cost me $5.00 on half price day, seems like new and fits me perfect. It appears that it was purchased in 1956.

Does this count? Late 70's 1680.

Wonderful thread idea, Spoo, and some terrific posts so far. Reminds me of Pejsek's posts. For example:

It's a classic design and I think it looks much better in this wonderful antique shade. Last is the 201:








The second shoe is a double monk made for Paul Stuart, again back in the 1980s (showing a bit of age but still able to get around on its own). I found this at the Goodwill over ten years ago and I kind of lucked into it since at the time I had no idea of any EG connection. It's pretty much the Westminster with a cap-toe, medallion, and additional punching throughout the shoe. Perhaps I veer toward the baroque, but I find this design much nicer than the standard Westminster. Last here is the fabled 88:

Thrifting has generally been horrible lately here in San Francisco, but there are always things that slip through. Halloween can be a great time to thrift owing to some rather expansive definitions of costume. Favor smiled on me last week with a number of good finds. Long live AngloMania!


First up, an amazing Huntsman suit dated January 31, 1975:





The cut may best be described as a two-button roll one--it really is the trademark Huntsman one button cut with a sort of vestigial second button above fairly high on the chest. This may be a clearer picture of how it works.





Check out the back. I've never seen anything quite like this before. Not quite a western back, but certainly equestrian-inspired:





The back construction accounts for a lot of the shaping and skirting:





The pants are interesting as well:





Notice the lapped seams and the absence of back pockets:





A simple wool cavalry twill, the suit acquires its considerable flamboyance solely through cut and details:





The Huntsman label:





All in all, a satisfying way to spend ten dollars. Fits just about perfectly too, though finding a place to wear it may pose a few difficulties.


Another acquisition from the Halloween rack. This is a shawl-lapelled tartan jacket from Edward Sexton dated November 5, 1985. The lapels are really quite long:





This is another piece that's nice to look at but perhaps a bit harder to wear. It's cut much like a dinner jacket but the lapels are self-faced rather than with satin or grosgrain. Not really casual, but not really formal either:





A close-up of the cloth:





Finally, an older piece but it fits here. This is a tweed Huntsman jacket dated June 11, 1975. The seventies, it turns out, could be very good:





A three-button cut. Note how well the scarlet lining works with the tweed:





Here's the back:





And a close-up of the pocket:





Well, that should do for now. I may, however, make this an on-going project.

Anyone interested in vintage clothing might want to take a look at his other threads too. All of them have interesting commentary and most have pictures.

Beck, Thanks for contributing, but thats not quite the "vintage" for the thread... shirts, ties, things like that really dont have a place here, I think. Im looking to curate some of the more rare, older, more artisinal pieces.
post #39 of 1134

Okay man, I will keep that in mind. Thanks, hope i find another huntsman :D

Cross posted in the Tweed Appreciation thread but I think it belongs here too.

My internet research indicates that the dark blue label may date from the 1950s. It's a lovely 3-roll-2 piece in what I believe could be called barleycorn and I'm looking forward to wearing it. I just need to lengthen the sleeves a bit.

Nice stuff today, fellas. I too, found this awesome vintage Fallan & Harvey bespoke tux yesterday. Too bad there is not a date on it, but I guess 60s.











post #45 of 1134

Not sure if these belong here, so feel free to delete, Spoo.

 

Four pieces from the mid to late 70's, I believe.  Someone feel free to correct me.  Three S/S jackets with MOP buttons & one cashmere - all from the same person.
