    They become really awsome when you take 'em to a tailor and tell him "I want that!"

    Matt,

    I assume, then, that you have taken it to a tailor and have had them make one for you? If you have, that's awsome.:cool:

    How much would one of those suits cost now days?

    I used to do exactly that. I had all my suits made here:

    Bhambi's Custom Tailors
    14 E. 60th ST.
    New York, NY 10022
    Phone: (212) 935-5379

    about ten years ago.

    You go in. You pick out the fabric. Yes I want cuffs. Working button holes. Suspender buttons, not belt loops. A high rise. Broad shoulders. Nipped in at the waist. You want a vest? Sure! How bout a single breasted suit with peaked lapels? You know it!

    Too bad I don't fit into them anymore!

    Back to the gym for me!

    Good stuff for sure! That's what I would do if I had the cash.

    I would have belt loops though. I like to have a choice wither I have braces or a belt. Never want the same thing every day. I like bets and braces. Belts were worn a lot in the 30's and 40's.

    Wiseguy...

    ...you should sell me the suits you can't wear anymore!

    And that catalog...it's sort of painful how great suits looked back then.

    I think they looked better then the real thing did even then! Paintings have a way of selling the product better I think.

    But, vintage still looks swell and much better then what is made today!
