As I said in my last post, I have several new things to show. So, this first post back will be a "what I wore" post. But wait, there's more! Not only do you get one WIW but two in one post! Amazing!
Two Sundays ago I wore the below outfit:
*Early 1940s custom-made SB peaked lapel sportscoat
*1940s Champ fedora
*modern shirt, trousers and AE shoes

*Early 1950s jacket and vest from J.C. Petersen's, my great great-grandfather's haberdashery
*1940s Dobbs fedora
*1930s lighthouse tie
*modern shirt, trousers and Bostonian spectators
