These were made by/for United Costumers Hollywood in the 1930s and later came to be part of Warner Brothers wardrobe department. They are made from wool gabardine with a fake broadfall front, buttoned legs, a side closure and front pockets.
These vintage breeches were made by/for United Costumers, Inc and found their way into the Warner Brothers costume department. They have a single front pocket, a side closure and are marked as representing 1700-1750.
I bought this as part of a lot of clothes used by Warner Brothers in western movies. It’s a bit of a mystery, and doesn’t bear any of the Western Costume tags or Warner Brothers labels that the others did. The shirt has a pullover cut, large collar and gathered sleeves. It has unusually wide shoulders.
This vintage vest was made in the early part of the 20th century from a mustard colored corduroy, with a buckle back, four pocket front, piped edges and lapels. At some point it found its way into Hollywood wardrobe. The plaid overcheck of the corduroy looks to have been airbrushed on at that point in its life. This was used in various westerns over the years, and remained in Warner Brothers’s costume house until fairly recently, as evidenced by their modern style label with bar code.

This vintage jacket was made in the 1930s for United Costumers, Inc., an early Hollywood costume house catering to the film industry. This one is an elevator operator’s uniform. It is double breasted, with metal buttons and a black collar. There is black sleeve piping and the remains of stitching from where a diamond shaped patch was removed from the sleeve.
These vintage buckskin pants were made in the 1930s, or possibly earlier. They were used by the Western Costume Company of Hollywood California in western movies starting in the 1930s. They are made of buckskin leather, rough side out, with fronge running the length of the outseam. They have one pocket, on the right seam, have a button fly and belt loops. There is a stain on the right leg and on the pocket bag. The main tag has them marked as a size 32×32, but they have been taken in and shortened over the decades, as these were used in countless movies. The main tag has number 38-23_5-2. If the illegible number is a 4, that number, 2345 was the production number for 1936’s The Last of the Mohicans, starring Randolph Scott, in which he wore an identical looking pair of buckskin pants, and in which other characters wore many fringed buckskin costume pieces.
This vintage jacket came from the warehouses of Western Costume of Hollywood, and was used in Westerns and in 19th century period pieces. With the texture of the fabric and the placement of the pockets, I would guess that this was probably cut down from an old shawl collared overcoat or mackinaw, and had the collar trim and extra buttonholes added by Western Costume. The jacket has fairly heavy wear, which is to be expected from something that’s been in a movie costume department for decades.

This vintage jacket was made in the 1940s by McGregor. It is a classic two tone hollywood jacket, with brown sleeves and collar, and a sand colored tweed front and back, with a subtle lime green overcheck. It has a three button front, with patch pockets. It is half lined and unvented. There is heavy mothing throughout.
This vintage two tone jacket has a gold metalic brocade panel front, and black sleeves, trim, and back. With the asian print lining, it’s safe to say it’s a Hong Kong tailored job. It buttons all the way up the front, to the neck, so it can be worn with a standard suit jacket look, or a nehru look. It’s a great early rock and roll stagewear look. There is wear to the metallic thread, and some staining to the front- see pics.
