Our ancestors were a hardy bunch – we knew this. When it came to baseball uniforms, there was nothing like a wool jacket and trousers combined with a shirt and tie.
Those of you planning to dress for the World Series might want to take some tips from this 1902 ad for the Sewell Bros. & Montgomery store in Skidmore. You buy the suit, they’ll furnish the Base Ball, Bat, and Cap.
Choose from Three Piece Knickerbockers, buy a dainty suit for dress or a sturdy suit for romp. As one of our modern American television characters would attest, a good suit can provide faultless style. Sewell Bros. provided the reasonable prices and a variety from which to choose.
You can’t ask for much more than that. Sewell Bros. & Montgomery – “Whatever is here is good; There is nothing here that isn’t.”
