From The Pathé News Archive: Jon Pertwee – Waistcoateer!

Future Doctor Who star Jon Pertwee (and brother Michael) appears in this British Pathé newsreel from 1954 about the Soho-based Waistcoat Club, in which natty dressers wear some astonishingly ornate waistcoats.

Pertwee appears throughout, with his first appearance at the 5 second mark.
