This vintage suit was made in the 1960s, sometime around 1962-1965 by Vaughn At Sather-Gate, who had locations in Seattle, San Jose and Berkeley. The suit is made from gray herringbone tweed wool, in a classic 1960s preppy sack coat cut. It has a four pocket, six button vest.
This vest was made by the J. Peterman Co. of Lexington, Kentucky, based on hunting vests of the 1930s. It has the distinctive “half-moon” opening on the front of the vest to the internal game pouch, as well as unusual pockets with the front stitched to keep everything secure even when moving vigorously.
This vintage suit was made by the Batch Tailoring Company of Helena Montana in February of 1950 for an A.J. Murphy. Unfortunately, the pants have gone missing at some point in the past sixty five years, so this is only the jacket and vest.
