Inspirations – Khaki Vests (2)

1) C.C.Filson Cruzer Vest, 1910s

Still retaining Victorian or 19th century influence, as you can see the awkwardness on sharp front end cuts.

Well, not only vests. Back then, tailored jackets used to have more than 3 buttons on front, most of the shirts were  pullover design with separate collar attached, pants had no belt loops(suspenders) yet and so on.  Men’s clothes have really evolved in 20th century.

This is the oldest CRUZER vest from C.C.FILSON I’ve ever seen.

2) C.C.Filson Photographers’(probably) Vest, 1930s

I have no clue what these upper small pockets are designed for – but I assume these are for glass plates for ancient cameras.

It even has more pockets(same size) in lower pockets in front and back.  Has higher neck point, typical for that era.

Even though C.C.FILSON was originally an outfitter for loggers and  miners, they used to make some novelty stuff like this vest in its history.

Besides this vest, they used to make Hunting jackets in 20~30s as well(totally different design from what they started making few years back).

Famous waxed cotton twill bags with leather strap only appeared in 1970s, I suspect those might be a new marketing idea from the new owner back then…(Takeshi)

Manual Procedure

P1-P2F 

Once the pattern is made, we take it upstair, trace it on the fabric and cut .

after the  first sample is made we spend some time wearing them to check if any adjustments should be made.  We’ll repeat this process until it is as our likeness. (Katsu)
