1950s H Bar C western jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281501818727
This vintage jacket was made in the 1950s by noted western wear manufacturer, H Bar C ranchwear. It has razor sharp peak lapels, a squared off cutaway, patch pockets with scalloped, buttoned pocket flaps, a three button front, and a western scalloped yoke. It bears a 1949 amalgamated clothing workers of america label, with the pre (R) variant that dates it between 1949 and 1961. With the overall styling, I would place the dating at the tail end of the 1950s.

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.
