1913 Advertising Print Men's Vintage Clothing Antique Salesman's Sample Catalog in Black and White.
Huge antique print of a man in a snazzy suit, smoking a cigarette and holding a match safe. Print is on very heavy card stock. This is a page from 1913 Advertising Print Men's Vintage Clothing Antique Salesman's Sample Catalog
The catalog, carried by a salesman, was used to show store owners, "Way out West" in Idaho, what was available from the big city.
It advertises, gentleman's suits, vests, coats, hats etc from the Down Abbey / Edwardian Era.
Drafted and printed by the GREAT WESTERN TAILORING Company, Made to Measure Garments, Chicago Spring and Summer 1913, this is a fabulous catalog page. This listing is for one page from the book.
The man, wearing a "three button sack (suit) with dipped front, is lighting a cigarette. The very handsome man wears a snazzy hat, gloves, the old fashioned, stiff, stand up collar and a classic necktie or cravat of the era.
This is a LARGE, original print on heavy card stock. 18-1/2 inches x 15-1/2 inches. (will require extra large box and so; slightly higher shipping costs.) It is worth it.
I have placed a quarter near the man's head so you can get an idea of how large this print is. STRONG poster board paper.
Ideal for costume designers for film, stage and re-enactment. More of these pages are listed at Toinette's.
This HUGE print was bound in a very large book. Salesmen carried this huge book, from town to town, taking orders for the clothing shown.
Bottom of the page has information for each style of suit or coat shown. Authentic details and names of each style.
Men's wardrobe is drawn with amazing detail showing how a gentleman would have dressed as the world was approaching WWI.
Great source of information for authentic costuming for film and stage. Amazing display for a vintage men's clothing store, vintage clothing store, man cave or for an advertising collector.
See my other listings for MORE of these huge over sized prints. Two or three can ship for the same price. I will be happy to combine shipping and insurance. Just send me a note to work out the details.
Condition is ABOVE excellent. There MAY be a few tiny, tiny spots but overall condition is amazing!
The last picture is representative of what is on the BACK of the page. Here fabric samples were displayed. They were removed long ago.
