Wow, those squares are amazing.

Spoo - those are great, particularly the one with the Roesti recipe!

Here's a great Scottish Camelhair hacking jacket. Ticket pocket, 3/2 roll, Made in the USA by... Chaps Ralph Lauren! Their early wares are almost always worth picking up as the quality is superb. This one is kind of in-between a 38 and 40 Short.

I have never been much attracted to pocket squares, but holy hell those things are incredible.

Are you selling this one, or just showing it off?

Great source of knowledge you have.  Sounds accurate in terms of dating the piece.

Has anyone heard of this particular tailor? It's a wonderful jacket, weighs half a ton and has a lot of handwork. (40 S)

Cross post from Thrift thread.

Custom made Jodhpurs. Made in Delhi, June 1957 for Canada's High Commissioner (Ambassador) to India at that time. Sorta fit me too! (Though he had a but bigger waist and probably a few inches on me).

Do the pants bear the same label?  Shouldn't they have double braid, rather than a satin stripe.

Yes.

ITG, technically white tie trousers should have a double stripe, yes. But it seems to be a rule honored more in the breach than in the observance. I've seen far more with a single stripe than double, especially among those made in the US.
