    The thought appeared to me as well that 1960 was the year it was registered, though existing before.

    However I would find it peculiar if a company makes itself younger than it is. Particularly among menswear a "old established pedigree" would be the desired advertisement.

    Here from the Fedoralounge:

    A Swedish Tunic dated 1944, also from Rappson.

    I think it is proven now that the label and suits are pre-60's.

  2. Yes, certainly at least that the suits could be 1940s. Certainly in the case of the website suit, and possibly in the case of the jacket posted to this thread initially.

    Actually I found that 1955 army jacket earlier and was a bit confused about the facts but thinking now the brand must have existed before it was registered in 1960.
     
  4. I've come across similar issues in UK vintage menswear with companies that existed for years before they were incorporated, so some record of them comes into existence at Incorporation, but it's not like they suddenly popped up into existence from the aether.

    This is exactly the sort of discussion that maintains my faith in the FL.

    I don't believe I've shown off this late 40's American number before. Very much the Bold Look.

    I have a lot more to photograph, and next time I have my camera and suits in the same place I'll post the rest of mine.

    Thanks! The extremely boxy cut, and lowered lapel points don't make it my favorite fitting jacket, but the fabric is indeed something to behold.

    Not my but my son is one of his belted back suits that is now too small for him. I was having fun taking some photos to sell it in the classifieds.

    Well I went back to the store and bought it for the price of 15$. Here are some new pictures of it.

    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Front and back, no pocket flaps or vents at the back, sleeves are without buttons.

    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Two lapel holes and some faint red stitching along the lines.

    Now some grey trousers or maybe even cream coloured ones for the summer months? This picture has already inspired me a lot. What about waistcoat? Could it work with all three pieces being odd?

    Some medium gray trousers would do nicely. I'd forgo on the vest, though.

    Welcome Luftwaffles. You look at ease and confident while dressed up nicely. I think you'll fit in fine here.

    Our doublebreast trademark. Here another one of our double breast in the old milanese tradition, the same cut made for Gianni Agnelli during the old time era.

    A steel blue sharkskin wool made for one of our customers with the original milanese occhiello lucido, an antique milanese tecnique my aunt, one of the italian buttonhole masters, taught me last year.
