The Archetype

— Mon, 4th August 2008 —

Tuesday and Wednesday only, Hart Schaffner Marx is unloading suits, jackets, shirts, and ties priced from $100-$300. Sample sizes only, unfortunately: Trousers 34 waist; Suit sizes 40 and 42 reg, etc. [Racked]

Any interest in the history of men’s fashion? (“Yeah!”) Here’s a fascinating story that Time did on Hart Schaffner & Marx in 1937, when they were apparently “the best-know name in men’s clothing.” Turns out the company was quite the trailblazer in the “cloak & suit trade.”
