Vintage Edward Green Catalog
One of the reasons I happened to be at the MRket trade show was to meet up with my good friend, Mr. Billy Neville - an all-around good guy, wealth of information, and walking archive for all things relating to men's clothing. Mr. Neville was kind enough to bring along a veritable treasure trove of wonderful magazines and catalogs - dating as far back as the 1920s - from the world of men's advertising for me to peruse and ogle.
Of course, the first thing to catch my eye was this circa 1980s Edward Green catalog and ordering form - which of course included my absolute favorite Edward Green model of all time: the Windsor; as well as my runner-up favorite Edward Green model of all time: the Braemar. Both models were featured then on the now-defunct 201 last.
Even Ms. Hilary Freeman, Managing Director of Edward Green, who happened to be stationed nearby, was suitably impressed.
