  • Product Description

      A smart 1940s suit, made of a ribbed textile, cut on the bias throughout the piece. It's a classic cut, with a single breated, low gorge closure and peaked lapels. All three pockets are working, so you can pair this with a flamboyant pocket square. The jacket is fully lined in black acetate, with cream lining in the sleeves, as you'd see in menswear. The skirt is a six-gore style. It closes on the side with a cloth covered metal zipper.

      This suit has been cleaned and is ready to wear. There is some pressing sheen, I think - the weave itself is a little lustrous, but the sheen feels uneven to me. The weave is slightly prone to snags, and you'll find some tiny ones scattered throughout. The hem has been let down to the absolute max, and the blind stitch is in brown thread, you can see little dots of it along the hem. There's a missing chunk of fabric on the edge of the zipper placket - I assume it got stuck and they cut it away. The lining of the arms is stained.
