Your uniform is for a Marine Corps captain. The US Navy wears the same rank to denote lieutenant, so your bars are correct. The fourragere should be worn on the other shoulder and tells us that the unit that the captain was serving in was either the fifth or sixth Marines. The fourragere is a unit award for service in World War I.

 

The uniform appears to be from the Vietnam period. It appears to be complete with the matching belt and trousers. You just need to find a tan shirt and tie and a cap to display the entire uniform. The captain should have some ribbons- at least the National Defense.

Your label is simply a garment workers' union label. There may be some way of pinning down the exact date of manufacturer (or at least the year), but we do know that the jacket is Post Korean War, and most likely Vietnam era.
