That Poole suit is insane, in the best possible way. biggrin.gif


Unfortunately selling a sport coat that I didn't wear enough. Cream triple patch-pocket in a wonderful open-weave silk. 36/37 Short.

You fellas out there with wife's know how hard it is to find things for them whilst out thirfting. My wife had actually been stalking ebay for a red equestrian jacket with little luck. Yesterday I found this beauty from a hole in the wall Sally that sometimes produces gems. Judging from the tags and buttons, I'm thinking it's from the 50's or 60's. Fully canvassed wool/tweed puppy-tooth with a hand attached velvet collar and in mint condition. It looks black and white from a distance but up close you can see it's actually olive and light green plaid. The best part is that it fit's her like a glove, even in the sleeves, which usually fall short. And she LOVES it, which always makes me happy.

I have this morning coat and a pair of formal pants--but I am not sure if they are a pair. Do these work together or are they two separate items? They are both made of rough, thick wool--but the their shades do not match. Should they? The last picture is a comparison of the two fabrics.

The jacket is from a closed department store named Gimbel Brothers in NYC, and it was made by Siegel Brothers and Siegel.

It is in flawless condition considering it is 80 years old. The only issue is a loose piece of trim on the hem.

Here are a couple pictures:

Morning coats are never worn with matching black trousers. They're worn with black and gray striped trousers.

Also, you should probably never try to match black fabrics for formalwear. It's virtually impossible. They will always be different shades, weaves, weights, etc. When it's supposed to match, it needs to match exactly.

The mid gray is the exception to the rule.

Now, there is an alternative. The mid grey coat I mentioned takes matching trousers. This “morning suit” was once considered too informal for anything but the racetrack.

^ Are you getting that its from that era from the ACTWU tag? Or by other means?

That and the fact that it's a wool/poly blend shog[1].gif . The 4x2 seemed to be popular in the late 60's deduced from my excessive hours spent browsing through vintage ads.

The Caraceni is sublime despite the ticket pocket, which I abhor.
Decades ago, one might actually see that caliber of tweed/plaid
on high end OTR, but at least in the San Francisco Bay Area, never
today. BTW, what size is it? I even own an Italian Shotgun- Bernadelli 12 guage.

Thanks,

The Caraceni photos are actually from my archives from earlier this year. No longer in hand.

Hippie Chic exhibition.

I think the Vintage Thread is the most appropriate thread to post this on. The following link and description came through on a mailing list I subscribe to.

http://www.mfa.org/exhibitions/hippie-chic

What did it ever mean to be a hippie and how can we accurately describe this slice of American culture and attitude more than four decades after the term was first used? The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston took on the fashions and trends of "hippie chic" with their in situ exhibit. This website is offered as a complement to that exhibit and includes interviews with curators, an exhibition preview, and a video that takes interested parties behind the scenes. In the Slideshow area, visitors can look at nine different designs from the era, including an amazing woman's jacket from 1970 that is truly celestial. Moving on to the Explore area, visitors can try the hippie chic remix and star on their own psychedelic album cover. The site also features a Spotify mix to get people thinking about the period, complete with songs like "Maggie May," "Sugar Magnolia," and "Wild World."
