Make sure you check out my other auctions! This is a VERY COOL offering! It consists of a complete Blatz beer deliveryman uniform from back in the day!
Included is a hat, a long sleeved button down shirt, a short sleeved button down shirt, a jacket, and a pair of trousers/pants/slacks. All pieces are in VERY nice shape. Guys were obviously much smaller back in the day as all of these pieces are on the smaller size. The hat is in excellent, near mint condition with the Blatz logo patch in the front and a shiny black bill with gold buttons on each side. There are no tears in the fabric and it is in EXCELLENT condition.
The inside is like the outside, near mint. As you can see in the photos, this was Marvins, and the label inside the hat says Marvin Groth. A very cool detail that ties all of this together. The jacket is a mix of polyester and wool and is also in excellent, near mint condition.
It has the smaller Blatz logo patch on the front above a pocket with a large logo patch on the back. Is embroidered above the second pocket on the front. The inside collar tag indicates it is 45% wool and 55% dacron and belonged to, you guessed it, Marv Groth. It also has some other number codes with an E38 so Im guessing this jacket is a size 38.
Another inside tag confirms it, too, was from Hart Uniforms in Columbus, Ohio. Both the short sleeved and long sleeved shirts have the smaller Blatz logo patch on the front with the larger one on the back.
The collar tags show Harco Deluxe Uniform Shirt Union Made by Hart Mfg Co, Columbus, Ohio, Sanforized, 100% cotton. The long sleeved shirt is sized 16/32 on the inside collar. Im guessing the short sleeved one is also a size 16 but I dont see a label anywhere.
Both shirts are also in excellent, near mint condition. I didnt look over every square inch but I dont see any tears, rips or stains to mention. If there are imperfections, they are minor.The slacks also have Marvin G. Stitched into the waistband, completing this uniform for Marvin!
They also have the Hart Uniform tag inside and indicate they are 50% woo, 50% dacron polyester. It looks like the pants are sized 38/29. What a GREAT piece of Americana! Its amazing that this group of items stayed together after all these years, and in as nice of condition as they all are! I can almost guarantee you that you wont find a complete uniform as nice as this one.You would be hard pressed to find another complete uniform, let alone all made for the same employee. These pieces are great by themselves, but when you put them all together, all I can say is WOW! Im sure you can look at each of these pieces and find some flaws, but youll need to look close! Displayed on a mannequin, this will just look outstanding!
I was never able to find a mannequin small enough for these to display, but with more effort than I made, Im sure you can find one. You wont be disappointed in these pieces, they look outstanding. If you are a Blatz beer collector, especially, or just a breweriana fan in general, this will make a FANTASTIC display in your collection.
