Don't say not Ivy Styled. Arthur Rosenberg was a prominent New Haven Tailor along with J.Prees and later Chipp.
I still have several jackets/suits from the 80s/early 90s from Chipp which are cut more or less the same way.
The key is natural shoulders. welt seams and other details. Some of us have big shoulders and chests and
and narrowish waists and actually look better in this Ivy variant. Unfortunately, these clothes no longer really fit me
anymore.

Must have been made for a Yank. Those are not typical Huntsman shoulders

These are the oldest BB ties I have ever seen. Probably from the 40s I would assume - anyone know the label era? The red one is also ancient madder smile.gif

How long are they? And how wide? '20s, '30s, '40s ties are usually all fairly distinctive in their shape and size. '20s ties are VERY short and have a considerable flare to the back blade, often almost as much as the front. '30s are similar but a little longer, and the back blade doesn't flare quite as much. By the '40s, ties are longer and a good bit wider (more than 3.5" or so) and the front blade is much bigger than the back.

The more I look at those, the more '20s/'30s they look. If they're so short you can't imagine anyone but a 7-year-old wearing them, probably '20s.

Here's my largely vintage wedding fit. The morning coat is probably 1930's, and the top hat could really be anywhere from 1890's to 1940's.  Cuff links are vintage, inherited from my grandfather; my mom remembers them being his dressiest pair from when she was a kid, so probably 1960's, but maybe earlier.

 

The dinner suit (jacket and trousers) were found at a local consignment store, virtually unworn.  75% Mohair, 25% wool.  Either 90's or 60's; not really sure.  The vest was found online.  Both needed minimal alterations.  The stud/link set is also from a local consignment shop, but they are nothing special - just cheap pot metal, but still nice looking.  They are double-faced links, which I was looking rather strenuously for.

 

And, while I'm at it, this is from our engagement shoot.  The tweed is from the 80's, pilfered from my dad's closet, so absolutely free!  I originally borrowed it to dress as the 11th doctor for Hallowe'en a couple of years back.  As it fits me, and doesn't fit him, I saw fit to keep it.
