For the chaps….The Prohibition Clothing Company

I stumbled across the site for The Prohibition Clothing Company the other day via my friend, the Vintage Baroness. A great online store for men who love to sport a classic look. The PCC have some very dapper accessories too, and I must say that it is refreshing to see more and more vintage-styled outlets popping up all over the world to offer something more than just mainstream fashion. Classic style never dates! Seems they also have a Made to order Service too and I like the web-page design. Here is what the owner has to say (taken form the site):

“The Original Prohibition Clothing Company was born out of my love for classic tailoring, the storied history of America during the 1930’s and 1940’s, and a desire to create timeless elements of style. Elegant and sporty, we offer a unique and individualized approach to dressing that is sophisticated, romantic and unusually appealing. Iconic vintage pieces are delicately reworked to be both modern and nostalgic. Unlike some fashion companies, who reinvent their aesthetic every year, we offer a consistent and compelling vision that allows our customer to build a wardrobe of enduring pieces. Through partnership with select factories and artisans, we strive to produce excellent products, with minimal waste and a high level of respect for all of our partners. These considered garments, inspired by our collective history, are perfect for making a little history of your own.”

They have hats and caps, back-belted jackets, trousers, plus-fours, shirts, vests, bow-ties and some great stuff like a leather book strap and vintage style tote bag. You can check out The Prohibition Clothing Company’s wares here:

Lovely 1940s snoods and shoes …

For all my 1940s loving friends…I have been scanning some of the great ads in vintage magazines that I own and thought I would share them as some of the shoes are simply stunning. Most of the pics are featured in a mid 40s Sears and Roebuck catalogue and the other is from the 1943 British magazine – Britannia. I love the Specators and the ‘Kumfees’. Great name 🙂
