That's amazing. I know I'll be able to use this at some point.
One of my suits has one of those pocket repairs in the trousers. With the result that the repaired right pocket is deeper than the left.

It seems like this ought to be a sticky! Thanks Dinerman.
Who says the golden era has to be tasteful and dignified?
I recently bought a copy of that booklet, too, thinking I'd share it here (since I don't sew), but you beat me to it, Dinerman.
Very cool, I like the multiple trouser cuff repairs that allow for wear.
Dinerman - this is great! Thank you for taking the time to scan all those pages. Very cool!
Pretend that you owe me nothing and all the world is green.
Very interesting stuff there, and a far cry from today when the trousers would just be chucked out rather than repaired.
On a related note, how much did men's fashions change in the US during ww2? Were double breasted suits and waistcoats frowned upon due to the excess material used?
