1942 UNION SPECIAL 51400 A CZ

Today it's one of my new sewing machines.
I'm gearing up to start making some jeans and needed the right equipment.
This is a Union Special 51400  Dated to 1942.
I wanted all vintage machines to make my jeans as they'll be a vintage cut and why not... right?
This is missing a few pieces but not bad.   Mostly all there.  Just a few parts to order from Union Special, which is still in business and selling parts... in the USA.
I really do have a "Thing" for these old machines.   Once I get the others cleaned, oiled and fixed I'll post them and hopefully down the line I'll have some jeans to show!   It's Vintage Gear for Guys.

WHITE STAG RED CHECK HUNTING SHIRT - PERIOD FIXED

Today it's a really cool period fixed hunting shirt.
Made by White Stag.  I have a thicker shirt/jac from them and love it.


This one has all the right details for a vintage shirt.  
Good size, great styling.   Nice details on the collar.  
Button flap pockets.
Gusseted side.
and a great period elbow fix with blue cordory.


It's shirts like this that really say vintage to me.  They're just plain Vintage Gear for Guys!
