In honor of my trip to Duluth last weekend, this Thursday. we're throwing it back to the early 1900's, when Duluth millionaire, Chester Congdon, purchased most of his clothing from the premier men's clothing store, Brooks Brothers.

Chester Congdon's top hat, tails, and cane.  Note also 
the detachable cuff to the right of the cane.

Two of Chester's ties.

Congdon, who made his fortunate in iron ore from Minnesota's Iron Range, would go on to become the second wealthiest man in Minnesota.  Second only to James J. Hill of St. Paul.

***What are you wearing for Throwback Thursday?
