Found this at the thrift store today. A black flannel tuxedo from January 1939. Stone mint condition. The sleeve lining is not discolored at all and shows absolutely no wear. Check out those lapel blades!
Very Trad for Savile Row. Likely made for an American.
Also, Harry Hull III is a very American name. I do not
think that the British go in for "Jr" and "III" as much as Americans.
Couln't find the name onthe Web.
Spoo, Nat, awesome finds.
Can anyone help with a date on this Brooks Brothers trench coat?
Looks like Zepel was marketed in the mid-'60s, so no earlier than that. Probably late '60s to '70s.
Any vintage outdoors label experts out there? I'm scouring the depths of the internet trying to find a model name for this parka.
I found this ridiculously awesome Sierra Designs jacket. Best I can figure is 1983 (between when Gore-Tex began appearing and when the SD factory in Oakland closed and the fact that the Gore-Tex tag has an '83' on it... It's Gore-Tex with goose down insulation. SD has a current similar jacket in their vintage line which goes for nearly $800. I'm missing the hood, but am just trying to figure out more about this thing...
^^^^^^^Holy shit those are sexy!!!!!
They're old but I don't know how old.
Swaine Adeney Brigg & Sons LTD England.
I have just heard back from the button expert. He says the buttons on the coat are gilt buttons dating between 1830-1840. I still don't think the coat is quite that old. IIRC the company hadn't even started going by Brooks Brothers at that point.
