Can anyone point me in the direction of a plaid suit for a vent figure (by chance)? I'd rather find one than have one custom made.

Also - I need a "Derby" style hat for Mortimer. Any recommendations/links?

Thanks!

Matt,
I'd recommend you try a costume shop that handles theatre productions. Chances are they may have an old children's sized costume you can buy - or can easily create what you need. You may also want to do searches for vintage children's clothing/outfits/costumes.
Good luck,
Tom

Hi Matt,

You can also try Ebay...

I got a tux and a matching top hat for my Mack-Marshall in Ebay Smile

Bill Nelson mentioned that I should try a Herringbone suit. I have a great tweed jacket for him, so I ordered a great bow tie/vest combination that is bright red/plaid. Also purchased some old school shoes that will be perfect from Bill Nelson, and a derby....so he won't be "exact" Mortimer...but he will look pretty darn good on display in my office, LOL.

Hi Matt,

Is your Mortimer figure the one posted at the Brose site?

That's a link to an interesting Mort figure, Wanlu.

"Mortimer, oh Mortimer, where art thou, how do I crave three, let me count the ways"

Every time I think I have found a nice Mortimer figure that I am seeking, I find another picture of the real shameil deal Bergen Mort that puts most everything I have found so far to shame...

I just saw some Selberg Mort's on google images that look pretty *** close to the real thing. You probably had to mortgage the house to afford 'em though.

No, mine is an "exact" replica.

I'll post pics when he is all costumed.

The picture you're looking at is a Chuck Jacksonized version. I also like Selberg's version of the Bergen characters.
