1961 Sunoco work coat


This vintage Sunoco uniform was made in 1961 by the Hirsch Tyler company of Philadelphia, makers of precision uniforms. It is a four button, single breasted style, with wide lapels and a large patch breast pocket, embroidered with the Sunoco logo. Very stylish flaps on the pockets. The jacket has a warm blanket lining, and reinforcement backing buttons. Interestingly, the tailor and union labels are sewn to the inside of the jacket, as there are no inside pockets to hide them in, as would be typical.

Flosmore sweater twin set


This vintage men’s twin set was made in the 1940s by “Flosmore”. It’s an unusual material, with a knitted texture on one side and a fleece texture on the other. The original tag states that it is made with a 100% wool pile and a 100% cotton back, treated to give it a fur like finish. The box is stamped that the set is a size Medium. It also comes with the original guarantee ticket. The set consists of a matching pullover sweatervest and five-button front cardigan. They are both in excellent condition and have never been worn. I would say the set would best fit someone in the size 38-40 range.
