Another awesome British cap from the 1940s. This is made of a fantastic houndstooth tweed in earthy greens, browns and creams, and was sold by Geo. Orme & Sons of Ilkeston, a town near Nottingham. It annoys me no end that this is several sizes too big for me!
This is another of the 1930s belted back suits I’ve owned that just didn’t fit. What a bummer. It’s made of a very conservative worsted suiting, unlike the typical sporty fabrics I expect from belted back suits. This is awesome. It was made by JJ Kirk of Barnesville and Martin’s Ferry, Ohio. I really love the very green buttons that contrast well with the dark blue of the suit.
I posted a Dunn & Co “The County” cap before (see link), and today I found another one. This is a very similar cap, but with a slightly different pattern. The last one was a Glenurqhart check too, but featured an orange overcheck. This one is a plain brown and cream glen check.
