    You can buy most of their shirts on line in a tall size.

    That didn't even cross my mind but the one I got is good. I never plan on tucking it in so the length will work.

    I have three that I'm going to get rid of because I can't tuck any of them in...gussets hanging out all over the place! Posting to the for sale list shortly...

    Hi gents,
    I have this aero leather long halfbelt and one 1930's halfbelt on order...
    Considering these kind of jackets were in the 30's - 40's workwear, what kind of vintage-look trousers do you suggest go well with these?

    For S&P you can go with the Cushman (if you can find them) or KT&H if they make them again on www.e-workers.net no other recommends as I don't own any other pairs.

    www.wwiiimpressions.com makes some really nice WWII U.S. Navy wide leg denim trousers.

    I got a pair of Lee 101b. They have wide legs and a cinchback. I don't know about the different versions out there. Maybe some are darker than other. Mine had suspender buttons, too.

    So they where my cheaper alternative to the 1933 repro levis which i loved, but couldn't afford.

    I caught part of The Courtship of Andy Hardy last night on TCM. Mickey Rooney is working on a Model A at one point, and is wearing a Jughead-style felt beanie and light-colored overalls with the garage name and address embroidered on the back. At least, I think that’s what’s embroidered on the back, I didn’t really catch a clear glimpse. Anyone got a shot of that lettering? I just bought a set of white coveralls not too long ago, and have been wondering how to spice them up a bit.

    Those are nice, but I would rather get a pair of these for men...I've seen them in vintage catalogs for teen boys.

    I really want a cap like this but am trying not to spend Japanese repro money:

    The repro cap above is $69, so I'd like to spend way less.
    Anyone have any leads?

    Those all look better than the adult styles. Cool pockets!

    I looked for these in the adult section but no dice. I would love to have the four pocket hooded jacket.
