Emperor Ming from the 1936 Flash Gordon serial. Arm technique achieved with a cow horn sticking from the torso (Thanks Micah G.!), TECHNIC element attached to that, and flexible hose lodged in that, to which the minifig hand is attached.
Here's a pretty classic looking 30's suit in a not-overly-amazing brown check fabric. Wide notch lapels, double-pleated patch pockets and a super-nipped waist.While the fabric isn't too crazy, this jacket is one of my favorites because the back is insane. It's got four strips of fabric down the middle of the back that form five vertical pleats over the back belt. Any subtle flex while wearing the suit opens up the pleats and makes this jacket breath like shark gills. It's gaudy, but kinda cool!
It's my favorite garment - it's sporty, but there's a certain humility to it. Undated, and the only label is a monogram (A.T.) I bought it from a seller in the Chicago area. Notch lapels, triple-pleated patch pockets and belted back with a center pleat in the back; buttons appear to be Bakelite. Paired here with a 1930's shirt by Pilgrim, a 1930's tie also by Pilgrim, and if you look closely, you'll notice a small lapel pin from the 1939 NY World's Fair and a matching collar bar with an itty-bitty, teeny-tiny Trylon and Perisphere on each end.
