Kinda doubt he would wear a uniform from a joint called "Meyer's"

^Why? Meyer/Mayer is German, typically from one who was a farmer. It's not solely Jewish, if that was your implication. tongue.gif

Nor I, but do you think that just adds up to "D" width? They really don't seem that narrow.

I doubt '40s, E. Seems more like '70s to me.

J&M Airstocraft mid 70' i would guess.  I have a pair of J&M Airstocraft oxfords from the 80's with a different logo.

That's does not add up to a D. Those are narrow (AA) and the heel (AAAA) is really, really narrow.

Does J&M still use combo last sizing?

If not, you can try finding out when that stopped to date an era.

Hi vintage heads,

Hoping one of you might be able to help me identify the style and era of a couple of shirts I found the other day. Half placket, French cuffs, band collar that I assume would have a stiff starched one attached.

You're right it would have been worn with a detachable starched collar. The half-placket style is a common older style; most men's shirts were made this way until "coat-front" shirts (shirts that button all the way up the front) became popular in the first half of the 20th century. I think Brooks Brothers made the switch in the 20s or 30s.

The CC41 label is a British wartime label that has to do with fabric rationing and controls on clothing production. It was introduced in 1941 and I'm not sure how long it was used. Rationing in Britain ended in 1952, so it's not later than that, but the CC41 label itself may have fallen out of use earlier. Because of production controls, CC41 clothing was often made quite poorly to save on material and labor costs.

These are definitely both thin cotton and don't appear to be very well-constructed, but I couldn't leave something that old behind for a buck a pop. Thanks for the info!
