I'm driving a bride and groom in late September and would like to be in period correct attire.

Can anyone suggest where I can get clothes (hopefully that fit) or patterns for 1911 style?

Any help is appreciated.

HAHA that's fantastic, one of the areas you can peruse is "Mustaches".

This is an extremely inexpensive place to get things like mens shoe spats, ladies bonnets, cigarette holders, feather-boas, flapper costumes, etc.

Warren: You didn't post a website link.

William: The link you provided is for a purveyer of Victorian era clothing. I believe that Bill needs something in the Edwardian era. Early 20th century that is.

I hope someone comes up with a good source as I would be interested in 1911 era styles.

The link I posted, some of the outfits will fit into a 1911 time period.

you can mix and match to get a look that you want, without buying a "set".

Just because the Victorian Era cuts off at 1901, does not mean people ceased to wear the clothing and went out and immediately bought new. If you could afford to keep up with the times, you probably would not be driving a Model T.

Good point William. I will keep that in mind when I am shopping for era clothing. Go for clothes that are older than your car, but not newer.

Go to the Library and see if they have a copy of the Sears catalog. The one for 1908 should be very close to the style you are looking for. Men's clothing did not change much over the years. You might leave the knickerbockers to boys, baseball, football and golf. :-)

My favorite site is premierclothing.com
Their items are very authentic in style.

Bill

If you search gentleman's emporium for "duster" and amazon for "newsboy cap", I think you'll find what you want without breaking the bank!
