This vintage suit was made in the late 1930s-early 1940s by Style Mart Clothes for the Edward C. Pease Co. of The Dalles, Oregon. It is made of granite cloth, in that distinctive blue/green shade, with subtle rust red and blue stripes. The jacket is single breasted, with a nicely suppressed waist and notch lapels. It is unvented. The suit comes with two pairs of pants, both identical. They are flat front, cuffed, with an early Talon zipper fly and a 1-1/2″ waistband. The cuffs have been let down at some point, but not pressed.
Chest (pit to pit): 20-1/2″ (doubled = 41″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 17″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 25″
Length (base of collar to hem): 29″
Harland Sanders may have made him his signature look, but don’t let that limit you. These western style bow ties can be pretty hip in a neo-victorian sort of way.
And then there are these. I don’t quite know what to make of them. Somewhere between a bow tie, a string tie and a long necktie. Cool western branding iron graphics, but I don’t know whether that redeems the design itself. A matched set, so they could look good for a western swing band or something of that sort.
