@ManofKent would know. My first guess would be Old Town, although their styles are a bit more casual/ workwear.

All the firms that do revival stuff in Britain are really aiming at that end of things, whether it's Old Town, S.E.H Kelly or Nigel Cabourn. The only route I can think of is either to buy vintage, or to do your research and go Made-to-Measure with the specific requirements you have.

You can get reasonably 'authentic' shirts and accessories from Darcy Clothing: http://www.darcyclothing.com/shop/

From their website showing their clients' clothes, they specialize in provincial poor taste.
I wouldn't go near them.

There is a guy in LA who dresses in what appears to be a pure Pre- War
US style and his clothes, if I remember correctly, are made for him locally.
He may've shown up in SF and/or Ask Andy around five years ago. I can't find
him on the Web- don't remember his name. He's worth looking for because
the way he dresses, he could have been in the film " China Town" .
