Veronica Cizmar, owner of amazing online vintage shop ‘Some Like it Vintage’, has exclusively picked out one item for each decade from the 1930s to the 1980s. Queens of Vintage loves her choices from tailored coat tails ala Marlene Dietrich to sparkling sequins – oh, and it all just happens to be in fashion right now!

1930s – Vintage Black Wool Coat Tails, C. 1938
I have a huge affinity for men’s tailored clothing, particularly suits. This tuxedo top coat is from 1938 and is so well made it would be considered couture today. But in the 30s, even your neighborhood tailor was extremely skilled. The label in the coat reads: Dec 29/1938 for Jim Nightingale by Warren Cook Clothing Company. I love when something comes with such exact provenance! The cut of the waist would easily compliment a woman’s figure and wouldn’t she look fantastic?
