Any one remember a radio jingle for a clothing store in NYC
    "Do you have a son who locks hinself in the bathroom and does ah ah ah
    Give him a quarter and send him to Cockeyd Jenny etc etc etc"
    Send him to Joe and Paul clothing store   " For a suit a Gagerdeen"

Try Youtube. It was recorded by the Barton Bros and it's entitled "Cock-eyed Jenny". (I hope.)

The one G.I.Joe is looking for is, I believe, is "Joe and Paul" parody Part 1 from Thomas Stern's first link.

These "Joe and Paul" commercials are terrific, both the real ones and the Barton Brothers parodies. The most complete recording clips are on the Yiddish Radio Project link provided by Thomas Stern - I think the first Barton Brothers parody is the one GI Joe is seeking (listen carefully - toward the end - and I see that bobad beat me to it).

So, the idea is that you go to Joe and Paul for "a suit, a coat, a gabardine." No?

Now I know gabardine as a fabric, but what do they mean by "a gabardine"?

Thanks. I am pretty sure it was the Barton Brothers version. which included Cockeyed Jenny   Yes Gaberdine is a type of fabric probably a suit made from that fabric   also "Mit 2 pare pents"

Anybody heard of a REAL Cock-eyed Jenny? She always portrayed as "loose" or a whore. Could there have been a girl who had weird eyes but made up for it with "affection" and left her indelible mark on history?

There was a time at which "cockeyed" meant "cocci-ed"....carrying a venereal disease.

I had a Gaberdine when I was a kid. It was a raincoat made of the material Gabardine, which is tightly woven and resists water (to an extent, anyway!) making it specially suitable for rainwear, though I see that Mrs. Google has suits made of it too, which seems a bit unlikely given its stiffness.

Gabardine is a high quality cloth used for men's better quality clothing.

gab·ar·dine
ˈɡabərˌdēn/
noun
a smooth, durable twill-woven cloth, typically of worsted or cotton.
BRITISH
a raincoat made of gabardine.
plural noun: gaberdines; plural noun: gabardines
historical
a loose long upper garment, worn particularly by Jewish men.

Gabardine is a tough, tightly woven fabric used to make suits, overcoats, trousers, uniforms, windbreakers, and other garments

The fibre used to make the fabric is traditionally worsted wool, but may also be cotton, texturized polyester, or a blend. Gabardine is woven as a warp-faced steep or regular twill, with a prominent diagonal rib on the face and smooth surface on the back. Gabardine always has many more warp than weft yarns

an ankle-length loose coat or frock worn by men, esp by Jews, in the Middle Ages

Cockeyed Jenny sounds like a relative of Cockney Johnny (him with the 'white hat on') in Blaydon Races.
