I like your thrift fit pics - I notice you always rocking a nice classic color sweater. What do you think of a very deep yellow Vneck paired with white shirt light blue pinstripes as a combo to try one day?

wow.gifis right! That's so awesome! Did you buy it? I wonder what is the oldest piece anyone has ever found on this thread.

Nah, not sure why I didn't. Oh yeah, the closet full I need to unload. It's been there a few weeks already I think. Inevitably, if I go look for it tomorrow, it'll be gone.

 

On that note, any of my local homies going to the grand re-opening of that place near me later today?

 

Also, went to NM last call today and spent $100 I didn't have. When I heard about the stacking discounts I was like

^^^^^ I have a tail coat dated 1935, but the coolest dated piece I have is a J Press tweed blazer dated 1966.

Also, if anybody is a size 10.5 E and wants a pair of Crockett & Jones wingtips for free, PM me. They need to be stripped, as it looks like someone tried to polish them with black polish (they are brown). I would do it myself it they were my size, but they are just a little too big for me. Just send me shipping and they are yours.

Easily fixed with a needle and thread, if you're handy. PM me if you want me to describe how I'd do it. Or probably < $5 at your local tailor.

Wow that is ancient! I have a Ratner SC from the 1960's. It has mini black and white checks which look like mini hounds tooth from afar. Pretty bad ass!

I have an overcoat with the Works Project Administration tag which dates it to 1933, I believe. The thing would stop bullets and is in mint condition.

Oh man, I've got to see this! Pics!!!

I've got a 1933 green velvet WPA- tagged Brooks Brothers smoking jacket, tagged 46 R but fits like a 44.  Thing is sick and hand worked.  Picked it up at SA for 4.99 last year.

 

Not worth much on eBay - most seem to retail for about 70$, however, but I collect really ancient stuff (like shirts by Brooks Brothers, Hathaway, et al. with MOP buttons as standard) because the details of the construction are so interesting.  The minute you get into superfine/thin fabrics, MOP buttons and stitching denser than you've seen its an much older piece dating from the 40's or before.

I have a Hickey-Freeman MTM navy blue shawl tuxedo with the same tag ('49-'62), plus about 3 SC's, but my oldest is a B&W herringbone w/ blue specks SC with the '39-'49 tag. I've seen a few other people with 1930's stuff in addition to those who already posted, but I don't know if they were thrifted or picked up elsewhere.

The tuxedo is way too big for me, but I'm having a hard time letting it go. A part of me is tempted to invest the $300+ it would take to completely recut the pants and fit the jacket. I don't remember if I mentioned this, but my grandmother worked at HF from about '48 to '78. I like to think that she may have worked on it, which would make it a totally awesome thing to wear if I eventually get married. According to my mom, my grandmother specialized in buttonholes and worked on suit for President Johnson. When I was over at my parents a few weeks ago and told them how I was getting into a wee bit of minor tailoring, my mom pulls out a piece of my grandmother's chalk and some of her silk to give to me. Kind of a cool memento to have of her. I wasn't paying attention to such sartorial things back when she was alive.
