    What I think is a 1964 Harvard blazer with 50 year rowing patch. Triple patch pocket and ben silver buttons. I looked up the owner and he did row in 1914 for Harvard.

    late 1940s:

    aloha-style camp shirt in a very small size, possibly for a woman or a kid (buttons on opposite side)

    made by the tailoring dept of a SF gift shop, still in existence. this label would be post-wii, after the owner-operator family returned from internment:

    "From May 1942 until May 1945 the Tatsuno's and thousands of other San Francisco Bay Area Japanese-Americans were forced to live behind barbed wire and armed guards at the Topaz War Relocation Authority Center (internment camp) in Topaz, Utah. During their "internment", Dave used his 8mm movie camera to take forbidden home movies of life inside the camp. His film, "Topaz 1945" has been used in numerous television documentaries and was inducted into the 1996 Library of Congress' film registry with 24 other movies selected from a field of 1,000 nominees. Other inductees included were "The Deer Hunter", "The Jazz Singer", "The Outlaw Josey Wales", and "M*A*S*H". It became only the second home movie ever selected, the first being the famous John F. Kennedy assassination film by Abraham Zapruder.

    With the war and internment camps behind them, Nichi Bei Bussan re-opened its doors on Buchanan St. in San Francisco. Shojiro had decided to retire and let Dave take over. In 1947, Masateru "Tut" Tatsuno (Shojiro's younger son) had returned from service in the U.S. Army. Dave saw an opportunity and decided to open a second store in San Jose, CA. He would run the new store; "Tut" would run the San Francisco store. In 1948 the San Jose branch of the newly-renamed "N.B. Department Stores" opened its doors in Japantown in the "Valley of Heart's Delight", now known as "Silicon Valley".

    the fabric is rayon, probably japanese, kabe crepe in an absolutely sensational print.

    so... an interesting piece! a really really early example of a mainland tailor borrowing the form and spirit of the aloha shirt. i would put this fabric up against pretty much any golden era aloha. they simply don't make em like this any more.
