Very nice! A full morning suit from a Savile Row tailor is quite a find. I had a Denman & Goddard suit once, it was a nice piece for a '60s production.

Picked up this Chipp Tux from 1956 yesterday. As usual, I love the lining!

In case anyone would inquire about the size....42L 35/30

It seems that when the thrift stores around here put all their winter gear away, so goes all the cool antique clothes. This one however, managed to slip through the cracks. A beautiful worsted and cashmere herringbone 6x3 chesterfield. This appears to be from the 40's, though the styling is right in line with current tastes. High armholes, slim sleeves, a nipped waist and hits just above the knee. Lots of handwork on this one as well, hand attached collar, hand sewn buttonholes and check out that lapel roll!. Buttons appear to be bake lite, and turn-back cuffs round out this gem. The best part is that it fits me perfectly! Al Koralchick appears to be a long defunct Chicago haberdashery, though I couldn't find anything on D' Puccelli. I did however, find this charming ad for E. De Montagnac & Fils, dated 1940!

This probably isn't worth a lot, but it has a fun story (and appears to fit). My next door neighbor had noticed that I wear Fedoras and other hats, and mentioned that he had found one when we were over there recently. He found it between studs when he was tearing down a partition wall in his basement! I cleaned it up some and tried it on (quickly, and IMMEDIATELY before getting in the shower) and even though it is marked slightly too small for me it fits pretty well. I'll take it to the local hat shop for a proper cleaning before I start wearing it in the fall, but here it is with just the worst of the dust cleaned off.


A little research into the label into the hat band suggests that the early 60s is the absolute latest for the hat, since around then Schmitt Orlow added Stumpf to the name of the store (they were a local men's store in Milwaukee). Since the house was built in the mid 50s, the hat had to go into the wall somewhere in that window. My theory is that the job foreman ticked off one of the workers in the basement and left his hat behind at the wrong time, then couldn't find it when he came back. Like I say, not the best hat in my collection, but the best story, both the real and imagined parts.

A hat with a history - I like it!

I am the oriiginal owner of several Chipp pieces, both RTW and MTM.
None still fit, but I can't part with them. I also have a Paul Stuart tux from the
60s- notch lapel with a silk lapeled vest.

Hey eazy can you post a pic of the bleeding madras with smoked mops I sent you in here?
It's a cool piece but my photo skills suck and a figured now that you own it, it can be properly displayed for the Internet
post #508 of 1163
capnwes, now that's a tux to raise envy on any Austin Powers. Well spotted!

Here it is, I had the arms slimmed and the body taken in at the waist. It now fits perfectly!
