I wonder how much something like that went back in the day - doesn't look like it's got a price on it; if it's a basic mail order company though I'd imagine it was reasonably priced.
Something like that today would set you back at least £600/700 (hence the price).

Can't imagine it costing too much, more raw materials back then. Deff not 600 quid

Apparently average income was about 2,800 per annum / about 235 dollars a month at 5 dollars something like a suede jacket would have been 2% of their monthly income. Where did it all go wrong?!
