Welcome to the Jaunty Rooster - a vintage menswear shop here on Etsy. I strive to bring you only the most unique vintage menswear with a focus on suits and formal wear. I am always on the lookout for those oddly colored mid-century sharkskin suits or those absurd and wonderful 1970s lapels and wide legs.

This influence probably comes from my older brother who was and still is very sartorially inclined. I think I was the only person in my class who knew the proper preppy break for pants or what Trafalgar limited edition braces were (I am still doggedly trying to pry that collection from his hands to list here). His love of fashion translated to my own wardrobe but I remained interested in menswear which caused me to amass a fairly substantial collection of great vintage suits. I am very proud to bring you some of that collection here via The Jaunty Rooster.

Please feel free to convo me with any questions or any special suit requests that interest you - who knows what I might have in my inventory for you! I would love to hear from you on any topic so drop me a line.

I am a proud member of the Vintage Fashion Guild (www.vintagefashionguild.org) and a member of the Etsy VFG Team (http://www.etsy.com/teams/6273/vintage-fashion-guild). Come visit!

Thank you for stopping by!
