Here are some more scans I have uploaded. I have more, but wanted to ask - do members wish to see any more image-heavy posts like this, or would it be better if I just uploaded them straight to the Esquire/Apparel Arts gallery?

Anthony.

I like the idea of a burma shade or grey dinner jacket.

Frank Sinatra wears a really interesting dove grey dinner jacket (shawl lapels) in the movie "Pal Joey."

Has a bluish cast in this photo:

Heck yes, let's see more of these, how often does one see a looks like a Tyrolean hat, short pants and a tie!

Where else would we get to see that look?

Since these scans are from a sort of "classic age of dress", it's easy to forget there was a great depression going on simultaneously.
