You may trade here, on eBay. Many pieces/repro from 1920-30ties, also covering the later years:

http://stores.ebay.com/LeLuxe-Clothing

http://stores.ebay.com/Unique-Vintage-Clothing

Please, check sizes, right period, repro or original etc. and ask for more pictures if you are in doubt of bidding. Do not bid if the item is too tight flush already in the description.

Kari (my wife) has just finished changing a suit bought on eBay into a smart uniform for me as taxi chauffeur from 1920ties. I also bought a lovely (correct) pair of longlegged boots for the costume recently. They were, however, pretty stiff, so I poured a lot of neatsfoot oil inside and "painted" the outside as well. I put a pair of shoe form stretcher mold, also bought on eBay, in them after oiling. By now they are restored to a useful condition for driving my 490 in a old fashion style.

I will put some pictures of several outfits a bit later. bigl

Hope you readers also can come up with some pictures of the costumes you use when driving your beauties!

PS. If you need some neatsfoot oil for leather work (clothing, foot wear, cone clutches, harness etc,) check at the shops selling equipment for horses. dance

Here are some pictures from this autumn in Sweden;

More elegance here, I think!

Some other costume pictures turned out to be useless. Better luck next year. stressed

I hope some of you have found some useful information as to the correct costumes for your cars. It would be nice if the pages here could bring more VCCA-people to join the show (and competition) in Flint/Detroit in 2011.

Imagine if we were able to show costumes from each decade. It would really be something for the press and non-members too.

Get your clothing to match the car and join the show in 2011!

Quite a number of suppliers have specified what they stock from different yearperiods, style and sizes. You should be able to search for some having what you want, but you will have to search for several, I think, to get a good choice.

You may also try a text on Google like this:

good choice of men's clothing from 30 - 40ties

and scroll down the upcoming pages.
