Vintage Menswear is Here at Last!

We just opened our new Vintage Menswear department at Past Perfect Vintage last night! We have carried mens fashions off and on over the years. It seemed time to go for it. You already know how I feel about women's tailoring and suits. And mens makes me  just as happy. It's been a few years now, but I have tailored a few suits and coats. Mostly Victorian styles and theatre quality, you understand, but that experience gave me true appreciation for good tailoring. And suits from the 1900s - 1960s had fine work in spades. The earlier Victorian menswear is also great, but like hen's teeth to find in today's market.  It's hard enough to find these classic 1940s and 50s pieces!

1930s Men’s Vintage 3 pc Cutaway Suit SZ 39L & 
1940s Men’s Vintage 2 pc Black Wool Tailcoat Suit SZ 38

1940s Men’s Blue Striped Vintage 2 pc Suit SZ 41/42R 
& c. 1950 Men’s Blue Glen Plaid Double Breasted Sport Coat SZ 48L
And in a moment of serendipity, I found out today Paul's Hat Works has opened in Louisville. And that they clean and block hats! Excitement Plus!! That's very big news here at Past Perfect. People who clean and block hats are few and far between.
