I aint no toothpick guy here. What's a good resource stuff geared towards those of us that are not horizontally challenged by any means. :lol:

Internet searches have yielded few results, so I thought I'd just pop in and ask.

Depends upon what style you like... do you just want plain black clothes.... if so look on some of the swing dance sites for bowling shirts in black... they also have some zoot suity sort of stuff in you are into a more formal look.

I pulled the following links off of the website for the
Knoxville Swing Dance Assocaition:

Vintage Fashions by Carol Nolan
He also has a treatise on Fashions from the 20's 30's and 40's with separate sections for men and women..interesting:

Siegel’s - An original maker of zoot suits.

El Pachuco Zoot Suits and More

Zoot Suits by Suavecito

If you are into the Romantic stuff - Check out some medieval/ren costume sites:

A local one is Castle Garden Creations
look under Men's Clothing..they have some trews, elizabethan slops and men's renn shirts. Here is their website:

They will ask you for a number of measurements so they can be sure it is your correct fit. (there is a measurements section off of the main page and I think it comes up when you order something online..)

I'd have to look around some before being able to find anything else.... I used to do a lot of sewing but I'm living in Chattanooga and working in Knoxville so my sewing studio is in limbo until I get the house sold and move up here for good or else I'd offer to sew for you.

You said you checked online..what places?
