Would wear the hell out of that jacket.

I hope Sissy Spacerock doesn't mind me posting this here, but this Brooks Brothers overcoat from 1911 is completely mind-blowing.

 

It's on ebay here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mint-Antique-c-1911-BROOKS-BROTHERS-Formal-Satin-Peak-Lapel-Overcoat-36-R-/380688661183?pt=US_CSA_MC_Outerwear&hash=item58a2cffabf

^That overcoat should be in a museum, it's truly bizarre to see the year "11" on a clothing item and realize that it's 1911. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif


It's still hot out there - ultra-lightweight and perfect 60's-cut Saks Fifth Avenue "University" Steel Blue-Gray suit. 3/2 roll, sack...etc. 40 R.

Found a BB sack 3/2 roll POW suit this weekend. Pics forthcoming. Somehow, it fits me perfectly, and I'm a very hard fit at 38L. Construction on the suit is astounding: blows modern day BB out of the water. This thing is mint and, wait for it, from 1942.

Sorry for the poor iPhone pictures. I'll throw together a fit pic one of these days. I'm a slim 38L and despite being a sack, the fit is spot on. Natural shoulders, 2/3 roll, flat front, big cuffs . . . 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Natural shoulder

 

Back of shoulder and arm pitch 

 

More natural shoulder pr0n

 

Felt is strong and unworn 

 

 

1/4 lined, with lining on the sides 

 

Note the lining at the bottom near the vent - must be to prevent wear when sitting?

 

 

 

Back vent - notice the horizontal reinforcement stitching 

 

Split waistband

 

Best for last - so we've all seen pants with slant pockets, normally offset from the seam that travels vertically up the pant - look how the seam actually follows the slant of the pocket!

^ I dig that suit a lot! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif It's not from 1942 though, that's just a code. The blue 346 label started in the 70's, look for the Amalgamated Textile Workers tag. Regardless, it's a killer suit - 38 L is a bastard to find. A well-tailored sack will fit even better (IMO) than a darted jacket, don't believe the dart hype!

If you ever outgrow that BB, holla atcha boy.

However though, I dont think the 1942 on the label signifies the year of production. I have a similar one that says 1952 on it, but was made in the 70s.

Oops. Yeah, I thought the blue 346 was a lot more recent, and certainly the suit doesn't look like it's from 1942. Here is the tag:

Yep....1976 or later for that union tag....well until 1995 I think.
