    New old stock uniform tie from the 1939 World's Fair. Just taken out of the plastic wrapper from T.M. Lewin and Sons long enough to have its picture taken. The logo, which is either lightly printed or has faded, reads "Good Will Ambassador, World's Fair, New York, 1939."

    What are you listening to?

    Yellow Dog Blues, Crying Sam Collins, 1927, for Gennett Records. "Goin' where that Southern cross the Yellow Dog." Probably something like the blues W.C. Handy experienced in 1903 at the train station in Tutwiler, Mississippi.

    For Sale: 1950s Bee Hats Porkpie 7 1/4

    Here is a nice looking porkpie with back bow in a size 7 1/4, custom made by Bee Hats in the 1950s, I'd guess it to be from the middle part of the decade. It's in overall very nice condition, I can't find any real flaws on the felt, but there is a small "pinch" on the front of the crown. A few...

    For Sale: Unusual 1950s(?) Harry Levinson Courtney Hat

    This is an unusual one, made by Harry Levinson/Courtney, I'd guess in the 1950s, but I could very well be off on that. It reminds me of a 1910s or 1920s style, with the brim turned up on the sides. The brim can be snapped down in the front and worn like a regular fedora, if one desires. It's...

    For Sale: 1960s/70 Adam Longhair Stingy Brim

    For sale is a long-haired Adam stingy brim, probably made in the 1960s or 1970s. Condition is okay, far from perfect, but still very presentable. There are scattered moth bites, only three or four small ones on top, but quite a few on the bottom of the brim. I've tried to show most of them in...

    For Sale: 1950s/60s Knox Fedora 7 3/8 LO Cavanagh Edge

    This is a beautiful size 7 3/8 long oval Knox fedora in a very dark charcoal grey, likely made in the early 1960s, but it retains the proportions of the 1950s. Color is a little darker in person than in the pictures. Condition is basically flawless, about as clean as they come. The only thing...

    Vintage neon signs

    Here are a few I've photographed around Texas over the past few years... The Candlelite Inn in Arlington. Installed around 1955, I'd suppose, it's since been moved when the restaurant was remodeled, but it exists. The Texas Theatre in Oak Cliff, Dallas. Not the original sign, I believe...

    Post New Hats Here!

    That's definitely what I'll do, then. Believe me though, those pictures flatter it. If I were to return it, I'd probably wind up paying half of what I paid for the hat on shipping, and end up having less money than I started with and nothing to show for it. I've already given it a good...

    Just got this Mallory Dallas in the mail today. Seller said it had "a few tiny divots." In reality, it's just covered with moth bites (which don't really show in the photographs, but boy do they ever in person). I didn't pay a lot, and it's otherwise clean and fits well, so I'm now faced with...

    Show us your suits

    I got this Richman Brothers three-piece sack suit a little more than a year ago for peanuts, and it took plenty of work to get it looking good. It was previously in the service of the Williamstown Theatre Festival, and had a strap added to back of the vest to make it smaller, and the jacket...

    Post New Hats Here!

    Thank you. I was concerned about the fit, but it turned out to fit perfectly. I haven't done anything to it, but I give it a little steam just the give the old straw some moisture, though it's not brittle at all.
