This is my attempt at trying to pull off the old taxi driver look with my 1933 jacket, '30s/'40s Sears Roebuck cap, and '20s arrow tie.
Some more vintage finds
Those of you who've followed my blog may have noticed my glasses are a little too modern in comparison with the era's I like to dress. While the Shuron browline glasses I have were introduced in 1947, within the period of the golden era, I've been wearing them for a while now and thought it was time for a new look. I found these wonderful pair of lightweight bakelite glasses from around the 1920's, similar to those worn by Harold Lloyd and Vaudevillian Ed Gallagher.
1949 union tag orphan suit jacket. Gives off a '20s vibe to me. I have a hunch the original owner who had it tailored was an older gentleman who preferred the older style.
All the way from Britain, my first 78 RPM recording of George Formby. The sequel to his popular song "Window Cleaner". I actually prefer this version, as it's got more swing to it.
