I am looking for a great swimsuit from the 40's - 70's.

Ideally, I am looking for an older wool, belted set of trunks in good condition. My second choice would be a 50's/60's bark cloth cabana set. Single trunks from the 50's -60's are cool too. Overall, I am looking for something unique and in good condition. I lost out on a great pair of life guard trunks from the late '50s.

My absolute top is around $50 and I'd much prefer to spend around $35. I'm also willing to rent/borrow the right pair.

PM me if you have anything I might be interested in.

You may want to post the size you are looking for

Also cabana sets generally sell for around $100 and up--at least the vintage Hawaiian sets all seem to.

Good luck!

EDITED :

Oh sorry didn't see the size!

God, who DOESN'T want a cabana set? Wish they still made them... Actually, you might have better luck finding a pattern for a cabana set, buying material, and having it sewn. Now, that I think of it..that's what I should do...

I believe the clothing dept is on another site or under the general thread.

ATP - Thanks for the offer but I'm not interested unless you have this pair:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2200914/Elviss-soiled-underpants-fail-sell-auction--But-Bible-fetches-59-000.html

Thanks to SandraDee for the pm of relevant Etsy listings - very helpful - I've been looking on etsy but I find their search function to be frustrating. Despite looking there, I missed many of your finds.

Sewing up a good cabana set is a great idea but I need something truly old. Sometimes I get a plan in my head and I can't let it go until it is done. And my plan right now is to win the Viva Las Vegas men's swimsuit contest. It's all judged on the suit (it must be vintage; not a body building contest)and the competition for the men's contest was pretty anemic last time I was there.

Anyway, thanks again for the help SandraDee.

I just sold a matching terry cloth cabana set on EBay, doh! But I still have this vintage Kona Kai by Jantzen swim shorts

They say 38, but more like a 34, waist band 16" in unstretched

chrisandsarahb - That is a great suit! I am waiting to hear back from a friend on a Rayon Cabana set (in storage) before I figure out what to do. My wife picked up her 60's Jantzens at the thrift a few weeks back.

This one I bought on ebay a while ago so no doubt there's still gems out there. I don't have the matching jacket more's the pity. Its a Tropicana made in Honolulu and cost $24 US.
