    Vintage Denim?

    Standard Overall Mfg. Co. out of Wisconsin was the business that established the brand ‘Standard Overall’ as the label suggests - dunno how long they existed. Was the Montgomery Ward stuff made by Powrhouse by way of a business arrangement or was Powrhouse owned by Montgomery Ward?

    Aye they hiv stottin claes ... #doricforbeginners I bought that very coat, oh I dunno 10-12 years ago, loved it. It’s truly an inspired design ... but I sold it on eBay because I was tired of the effort of reorganising myself or the coat every time I put it on (or moved slightly ) I wish you the very best of luck with it and I’m looking forward to the fit pics

    No worries mate - Captain Jean is a good guy. As for overlocking/serging - it was in development around mid/late 19th c. but not patented until 1889 (‘invented’ about 8~9 years earlier), so probably not in use for mass production until a good while after that I’d think. All that period correct nonsense aside, those are really nice overalls. They seem to have the right pattern and they capture the essence of old timey trews.

    I can’t think of any reason why an Apple Watch or somesuch couldn’t be adapted into antique pocket watch case ... you might have went from collector to inventor
