Big Band Inspiration - Glen Miller

Glen Miller and the Band, Boxeted Aerodrome 1943

Glen Miller was a Jazz musician and band leader in the Swing era, as well as one of the best selling artists from 1939-1943.  Glen formed his first Big Band in 1937, which failed to distinguish itself from other bands of the time.  After the split Miller returned to New York and worked hard to develop a unique sound, and in 1938 The Miller Band was formed.  Their songs were destined for big things with names such as Chattanooga Choo choo, Tuxedo Junction and A String of Pearls.

These are the images of Glen and the Band kept in mind when seeking out things for the Gentlemen's collection.  There is nothing quite like sharp tailoring, military styling and a heavy dose of suave when it comes to Men's dressing, just ask Glen!
