Finally got somewhat decent pictures of this for ebay. It's not vintage, vintage, but is top-of-the-line quality.

 

p2p is 23.

As some of you know I'm bit of a history buff, and I love good vintage stuff. I've had two overcoats made in some very old (1960s and 1930s) fabrics. Yesterday, i went back to the shop where I picked up the Burgundy fabric that made my Capone Coat:


I managed to grab three more extremely interesting pieces, one of which is VERY old. The first two are more interesting than anything else. Firstly, a Holland & Sherry coating I'm thinking of doing a casual coat with, maybe a pea coat, or maybe just a single breasted piece. What i love about it is that its double sided:


Blue Grey Twill on one side:

Black and Grey Houndstooth on the other:



Would love to hear suggestions, though if go a heavy SC, I may do it in the twill,with the houndstooth as the hip patch pockets.

Next is a beautiful brown melange wool (I guess you'd call it that) from 1945:




Its heavy, but nothing nutso, like some older cloths. I'm thinking this will make a nice Polo Coat.

Lastly, what I think may be as old as the early 1900s (Detmer Woolens have been around since 1885, moved from manhattan to Brooklyn in 1909 after a fire in their Manhattan Offices) based on the weight of the cloth, and the handwriting "Sponged" on the tag, in a beautiful subtle herringbone in what I'd call an espressso brown:






This thing just screams Great Coat to me.

Thought you guys would like to see these. I also picked up a few other lighter weight 1930s woolens from the same place that we'll be using for Yellow Hook that I'm pretty stoked about. I'm having that professionally shot later today and will post here if you guys would like.

Is this vintage enough?

 

3-2. Awesome. Needs some minor work and then will be ready to rock.

What do you think derm?

Yeah I don't know how I feel about this, since it seems such large contrasting patches would need some other matching contrasting sections to balance it all out, and I think it would be a little overwhelming.  I was thinking that you could have the fabric folded over and have a seam along the opening of the patch pocket to have an edging showing the backside of the fabric.  This could also be done with cuffs and the lapels and breast pocket maybe, for maybe 1/4-1/3" (up to maybe 2/3" if you're bold) of contrasting border.

I think I saw that suit in Caddyshack.

Nothing spectacular, but it is vintage. This was one of those strays I see occasionally that could use a good home.
Cotton/wool blend with the loop at the throat, so 1950s or early 1960s.



Up in Canada we call people from Newfoundland newfies. But for some reason we don't call people from New Brunswick noobs.

Picked this up today, I'm thinking late 60's early 70's just based on the tags, but I've been known to be wrong before (see the Crombie). Any input would be greatly appreciated. I've found a couple of cool vintage hunting jackets over the last year or so, but this one is head and shoulders above the previous specimens.
