WR Johnston Craftsmen made to measure menswear catalogue Fall/Winter 59-60.

Those of you who follow me on social media may have seen a post a couple of weeks ago where I showed a few pages from a hand illustrated late 50s made to measure menswear catalogue from the late 50s that my husband picked up somewhere in the US. I spent quite a bit of time scanning in and cleaning up the pages and I could only share 10 pages on Instagram, so I decided it deserved a bit more exposure and I’m posting it here in its entirety. Well almost it’s entirety – some pages had been removed sadly. If you click on the images they will enlarge.

Imagine the cost of producing a catalogue of this quality nowadays in this age of fast fashion. All hand painted illustrations and the paper is beautiful quality. I would lay money on some of these suits still being around today
