    Printed for 'Society Brand Clothes', this one from 'Wilson's Clothes Shop', Brookville, Pa.

    Very high quality illustrations and color suit photos. Also several flaps with style advice underneath. In perfect condition, like it's never seen the light of day.

    Enjoy.

    Great scans.
    I especially like the color chart. I think it answers questions that people have asked before.
    Thanks loads.

    Sincerely,

    Beautiful photos! I wish there was a place that still sold clocked socks like the ones you see here and in old Esky issues.

    Interesting that they recommend green hats for gray suits . . .

    It absolutely is!
    I am a big fan of reference threads like this one.

    Scott,
    2 summers ago I was able to purchase almost identical striped trousers, same color and style from Hart Schaffner & Marx. Very nice perfect for summer and look great with a linen sport coat or NB blazer. Only issue is they are somewhat see through so have to be careful what you wear under them.
    I dont see them listed on their site currently but they may still have some, purchased mine at Dillards in Nashville, TN.
