Vintage Hollywood Costume Navy Sailor Suit
This comes from an enormous collection of Old Hollywood Movie Costumes I was lucky enough to stumble across. More about those later after the measurements so please read on...
Charming sailor suit in blue chambray. Pants with a flared leg, metal side zipper and buttons on the inside for attaching suspenders to. Top has a V neck, long sleeves and also a side metal zipper. This has all the characteristics of a costume made in the 50s and reworked perhaps in the 70s. Thats my best estimate as to age. Would be super cute as is or as separates! Perfect for both a smaller man ( maybe a teen?) or a woman. Tag inside reads: Warner Bros, prod 644A ( or possibly that last is another 4, hard to tell as its handwritten)There is also another number on the tag, 1C1072.
Great vintage condition. The only real issue worth noting are some color fade along the shoulders and sleeves, and a half inch area at the front bottom of the neckline where it appeared to have pulled from the seam. Please note that all items in this Costume section may have minor other flaws ( or example; missing snaps, small areas of loose seams, pinholes, etc..) that I have not listed as its just not possible to find and or list every minor thing as these have lived quite a life! Priced accordingly, As Is and Final Sale.

Top Bust or chest: 39' waist: Undefined, approx. 30" shoulder to bottom hem: 22'
PLEASE READ: I acquired an absolutely enormous collection of Hollywood movie costumes. Ranging across the board from Paramount, Universal, Unified Costumers and more. The last known film much of the items were used in was Lawrence of Arabia but we have no way of knowing which ones and there are others from other films. Most likely they were used on extras or smaller roles, I have not come across anything I can pinpoint to a major name from that film. Many of these were made much earlier, and I have found dates written on tags within from as early as the 1940s, though I believe some are even earlier. I have given as much information as I can about each item in the listing. Much has been lost to time however. That said, these are an extraordinary piece of movie history and I'm honored to be a part of it all.
Please note: These are vintage, preworn and/or preloved items. I do my best to list any issues, but signs of wear should be expected. Please feel free to convo me with any questions. I'm truly happy to help in any way possible and I'm always up for a chat. Any accessories shown, including crinolines, are for display only, not included unless otherwise stated.
