I am watching Shadow of a Doubt (Hitchcock's first masterpiece) and there is a scene with Joseph Cotten in bed and he's wearing 6-button double-breasted pyjamas!

 

He has great wardrobe in this film (superb glen-check suit; cream flannels, SB blazer, co-respondent shoes and a panama hat etc), but DB pyjamas! 

 

Has anyone seen these before, ever?

 

(Note to self: make some DB pyjamas).

Me too, they're cool.  I was thinking of making some new PJs, thanks HH; need some silk fabric.

 

:good:

In Melbourne there was a shirt factory closing down a week ago. Silk was selling for $12/m. Limited selection though and not sure if it's still on now. Place was Phillips shirts in CBD. Also selling some industrial machines, lockstich but also buttonhole (probably only shirt buttonholes)
If I saw this post, I might have bought enough for Db pyjamas but only bought some for trouser lining/Curtain.

If only I were on the other side of the planet!  :sorcerer: 

 

We do have some very good Indian cloth wholesalers in Bristol, they will have some beautiful silks.

That's one of my favorite movies, but I've never noticed that.  Another Joseph Cotten sartorial tidbit: I read that he liked to avoid having pockets on his jackets because he thought it was more slimming.  But I can't find any examples online.

What do you use for the piping on fancy silk (or even cotton) pajamas?
