Attached is an article from the days when a golfers best friend was his tailor; those young bucks who golfed and participated in other field and blood-sports during the early Twentieth Century were the fellows who benefited most from the tailor's craft, and by golly: they knew it, too. Pictured here are details of the pivot-sleeve (later to be called the 'action-back'): a four button, deep-vented, self-belted, pleated golf jacket with matching knickers.

Also featured is a terribly natty English cheviot golf hat.
