    Love these ads and the prices! 14th and G Sts NW in DC is a good area again.

    What a fantasy to be able to walk into Rogers Peet Co. circa 1963 with about a grand in your wallet. Except that you can be transported back to 2013 with your haul. . .

  3. I love the sizing mentioned in the first ad, “Suits, sizes 34 to 42.” I wish smaller sizes were still catered to.

  4. You and me both, O.C.B. Down.

    I’ve seen some old Montgomery Ward ads, and their suits ran from 34 to 44. You better believe that they had odd sizes, too!

    I’m a 37 short. When I started buying suits & jackets, they still made my size. Now, it’s hard to find anything smaller than a 38 (which normally doesn’t fit me), and shorts are getting rarer, too.


  5. Woo, I see The Hill School in there!
