During his run as host of his series, THE TWILIGHT ZONE, Rod Serling could be seen in the various suits popular in the day. It was not long before the haberdasheries that made these clothes were credited in the end titles of each show. Kuppenheimer from Chicago was seen, also Eagle Clothes based in Brooklyn.

Eagle Clothes was one of those classic clothiers in the "old world" sense, as they employed Italian and Jewish immigrants to make the menswear that they were well-known for. They were in business until the late 1980's.

An ad for Eagle Clothes in the November 1961 issue of PLAYBOY shows a dapper Mr. Serling in one of their business suits.

End credit from THE TWILIGHT ZONE episode, "A Game of Pool".

That picture of Serling is missing one key ingredient--a cigarette!
