    Awesome thread, Spoo! I don't wear it much either, but I love looking at it.

    I recently posted this coat in the thrift thread , but it might fit best here. This coat cost me $5.00 on half price day, seems like new and fits me perfect. It appears that it was purchased in 1956.

    Wonderful thread idea, Spoo, and some terrific posts so far. Reminds me of Pejsek's posts. For example:
    Probably his most famous thread on vintage English tailoring (spoilered since it's huge):
    Anyone interested in vintage clothing might want to take a look at his other threads too. All of them have interesting commentary and most have pictures.

    Beck, Thanks for contributing, but thats not quite the "vintage" for the thread... shirts, ties, things like that really dont have a place here, I think. Im looking to curate some of the more rare, older, more artisinal pieces.

    Cross posted in the Tweed Appreciation thread but I think it belongs here too.

    My internet research indicates that the dark blue label may date from the 1950s. It's a lovely 3-roll-2 piece in what I believe could be called barleycorn and I'm looking forward to wearing it. I just need to lengthen the sleeves a bit.

    Nice stuff today, fellas. I too, found this awesome vintage Fallan & Harvey bespoke tux yesterday. Too bad there is not a date on it, but I guess 60s.

    Not sure if these belong here, so feel free to delete, Spoo.

    Four pieces from the mid to late 70's, I believe. Someone feel free to correct me. Three S/S jackets with MOP buttons & one cashmere - all from the same person.
