Question: I have had several requests this week for finding 1940s reproduction men’s clothing that is either ready made or custom made to measure.
Answer: A while back I published a big list of men’s vintage, reproduction and vintage inspired clothing brands. I have been steadily adding to the list as I discover new online shops just for men. The list includes clothing from 1900-1960 styles. Most of the best sources for 1940s clothing (including women’s) are in Europe, not the USA, so be prepared to spend a bit more on shipping. A few of my favorites for 1940s men’s reproduction clothing are:
FreddiesofPinwood (UK) – Men’s 1940s blue jeans and shirts.
heydayonline.co.uk (UK) – Men’s 1940s shirts, wide leg pants and jackets.
Vecona-vintage.com (DE- Germany) – Men’s repro pants, jeans, knickers, vests, shirts in 40s styles.
Juke-jive.de – (DE-Germany) – THE BEST selection of men’s vintage reproduction clothing. They have in all!
ReVampVintage.com – 1940s men’s reproduction shirts, pants and jackets. High quality, limited runs means your look will be unique.
ZootSuitStore.com- A mega warehouse of men’s classic style suits in San Francisco but they also ship worldwide. They have a wide range for Stacy Adams suits which always make great modern Zoot Suits among other brands.
Carol Nolan- The source for men’s repro zoot suits. She also makes 1915-1940s suits, pants, and vests all custom made for you.
Harr Shoes (DE/UK)- Historical shoes maker for theater and the general public. Very fine footwear of all time periods.
There are more on the original list so check it out and let me know if you have one I need to add.
