The Pitch » English-Tailored Post-Boy Vests by Rogers Peet Company, 1963

Last week's vest ad doesn't seem to have gone over quite as well as I hoped (no love for pipe-smoking '70s mountain men, eh?), so perhaps the above will have a greater appeal.  It's from a November 1963 issue of The New Yorker, but the pocket square and narrow repp tie certainly wouldn't be out of place today.  Considering that the New York clothier opened its doors in the late-eighteenth century, I'd say it's safe to conclude that the classics never really go out of style.  What do you think?
