1920s Bedford Cord breeches

These vintage breeches were made in the 1920s. They are made out of a gray Bedford cord. At some point around 1930, the original owner upgraded them, reinforcing the pocket edges with heavy brown leather, probably elk or deer. He also removed the original belt loops, replacing them with black leather, and extended the legs 2-1/2″ with black leather. The extensions do up with flower patterned snaps, which help date the work. They are a transitional style, with male ends marked “USF Co”, and female ends marked “United Carr”. “USF” stands for “United States Fastener”. They merged with Carr Fastener in 1929 to form “United Carr”, but for a short time during the transition, they used the old USF toolings.
The breeches have a watch pocket, one flapped back pocket and one open. The legs button closed, and the pants have a button fly.

Waist (side to side): 18″ (doubled = 36″)
Inseam: 26″
Outseam: 38″

Allen Stockman Suit

I got this vintage suit in today. In the pocket was a letter from the original owner’s wife dated 1947. The original owner’s armed services honorable discharge pin is still on the lapel. I’m not clear on whether this suit is pre-war or immediately post-war, but it seems that it hasn’t been worn in 65 years.

If I had just seen the jacket of this, I would never have thought “suit”. The cut is classic sportswear, with a short body, button adjusters on the sides, an open collar and double buttoned waistband. The heavy material puts it squarely into the realm of someone who spends a lot of time out of doors. A real workwear look, especially with the construction of the pockets. Like some leather jackets of the period, there are suit style buttons on the sleeves. I would almost expect some sort of belted or sunburst pleated back on it, but other than the adjusters, it is just plain.

This Eisenhower style jacket is unlined, with serged seams and a cotton reinforcement panel at the bottom edge.

Now here’s where things really get interesting. It’s a suit! It has a button fly, wide fancy western style belt loops to accommodate a wide western belt. Watch pocket, and western style pockets.

The jacket still bears the original owner’s ruptured duck discharge pin and American Legion pin
