Sew-ups vs. Clinchers for vintage rebuild

So I'm rebuilding a 1940's Malvern Star path racer/track bike and I want to keep it looking vintage, knowing full well that I have a snowball's chance in hell finding the orginal parts.

Anyway, I found some older pista rims that would fit nicely but they are sew-ups. I'd be using the bike around town and short to medium distances. I've heard that for this kinda' stuff your better off with clinchers, any advice?

Thanks.
