I thrifted this seemingly bespoke blazer, it's dated 1959 with a label "Punaro & Fulger" from LA. It's a pretty nice looking blazer in great condition for its age.

Frank Fulger (Fulginetti) was my grandfather. Their shop was on Wilshire Blvd in the "Miracle Mile" area.
They made clothes for the Rat Pack, the Hollywood Elite (Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope, George Burns, Jack Benny, Clark Gable and many, many more!)
I used to go with him as a young boy (4 to 8) as he made fittings and deliveries.
They were VERY expensive for their time, but worth it. Very exclusive. Their cheap suit in 1962 cost $1200. Yup, $1200.
