looking for inspiration for Titanic era day wear?
Anything wet will suffice.
No seriously, what exactly are you chasing after?
Standard Edwardian era period clothing..... which will vary enormously depending upon what you're looking into. Full formal daywear and the likes for First Class passengers.... turn of the century workwear for steerage....
Well, we already know that you can buy the expensive Titanic shoes from Allen Edmonds. I suppose Titanic isn't like Indiana Jones, where every piece of clothing and all the props can be found.
Allen Edmonds discontinued the Bayfield boots. Those rats...
this will do nicely
I still see them available on the website.
This place might have a few pieces that you are after from that era.
This one may be another good source for men's Edwardian Clothing.
And, a poke through this site may garner something nice too. You just have to look around.
In very limited sizes.
thankx Dan, duly bookmarked
I would start by going to shorpy and searching "1912" to look at authentic high-res photos of the year: http://www.shorpy.com/search/node/1912
Then I'd try to Google up some advertising of the time period.
j peterman had clothing inspired from the movie and can be found on ebay from time to time.
I was able to replicate the uniform of Capt. E J Smith with some effort and expense. The hat used an embroidered peak from Wydean Weaving
the hat made, using this visor, by Michael Janke in Germany; the buttons from Waterbury, the coat made by The Quartermaster Shop, Kimball, MI.
The hardest were the medals. I lucked into a Royal Navy Volunteer Reserve Officer's Decoration,Edward VII cypher, at Liverpool Medals. It was a replacement/restrike from 1915 and reasonably priced. I have not seen an original for sale. The Transport Medal with South Africa bar was a repro.
I note that these Captain Smith hats are avalable on ebay for a song, now. Oh well, timing is everything. I had mine just after the movie finished its first run.
The Quartermaster Shop can (and just did for me) make 1890's-1910's era 4 button sack suits and jackets. Thnk Mr. Bates on Downton Abbey or any working man of the era's Sunday-Go-To-Meeting suit.
If your pockets are deep, contact Stan Boyle at History in the Making. None better.
of course, Old Town in the UK makes nice, expensive stuff too:
