1941 Scotch Woolen Mills peak lapel suit

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271577530184
This vintage suit was made in 1941 by the Scotch Woolen Mills, a Chicago, Illinois based tailoring company. The suit has a typically 1930s cut, with a high degree of waist supression. It is single breasted, with a two button closure and wide, pointy peak lapels. The suit is half-lined (as opposed to the more typical skeleton/petal lining of the era) in a floral jacquard fabric. The pants are zipper fly, with an early Talon zipper. They are straight cut and cuffed. The fabric is a wonderful deep burgundy with red and orange stripes. It’s a nice change from usual brown suits, and is surprisingly easy to coordinate colors with.

Early 1930s J C Penney sheeplined shawl collar coat

This vintage sheeplined coat was made in the early 1930s and was sold by the JC Penney Co. It has a nice early Penney’s label.

1964 Warner Brothers Cavalry Shirt

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271576032886
This vintage cavalry shirt was made in the 1950s-early 1960s as a film costume for Warner Brothers westerns. The shirt has a strap going from the rear tail to buttons on the front, presumably to keep it tucked in while doing stunts, like the “beaver tails” on old wetsuits or football jerseys. The original brass buttons were removed, as were the shoulder boards, although the mounting hardware and reinforcement for those remains. It was almost definitely used in 1964’s big budget western, “A Distant Trumpet”, which starred Troy Donahue, Suzanne Pleshette and Diane McBain. The shirts in that film are recognizable by their high-cut bibs and full button placket, as opposed to the pullovers favored by the wardrobe departments on other cavalry movies like the John Ford / John Wayne cavalry trilogy.

Chest (pit to pit): 22-1/2″ (doubled – 45″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 18″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 24″
Length (base of collar to hem): 27″

Stetson One Hundred presentation case

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271577537059
In the 1950s and 1960s, Stetson’s top of the line hat was the Stetson 100, which cost a whopping hundred dollars at the time. For that money you got a hand crafted pure beaver Stetson hat in a leather presentation suitcase. This is one of those cases, in the smaller Open Road / Fedora size, as opposed to the larger cowboy hat size.

1940s Seattle Woolen Company jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281409416979
This vintage jacket was made in Seattle, Washington by the Seattle Woolen Company. The company was founded in 1891 by Thomas Eddy Eyanson and produced garments for rugged outdoor wear, catering to the flood of people leaving for Alaska through Seattle. They were the first woolen mill in Washington State, and were headquartered in Kirkland Washington, directly across from downtown Seattle. After Eyanson’s death in 1908, his son Edward Eyanson took over the mill. They produced fabrics for Filson as well as selling garments under their own name. Note the extreme similarity in label design between that of The Seattle Woolen Co and CC Filson of the same period.
The jacket is a waist length cut with peak lapels and a button front. The pockets are all trimmed in leather for extra durability. There are spacious canvas pockets inside.

Chest (pit to pit): 20-1/2″
Shoulder to shoulder: 17″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 24″
Length (base of collar to hem): 22″
