*****THE DETAILS*****

*hard to find example of a classic Circa 1940s men's vintage suit
*done in a gorgeous chocolate brown heavy wool with chalk pinstripe - wool has that high quality "old" feel - if you have held an older wool suit in your hands you know what I mean - if you haven't, once you do, you will forever know when you touch older wool
*jacket is 2 button front - 3 on the cuff - single breasted - no vent back - partially lined - notched lapels - flap pockets - darted - long style
*trousers are pleated front - metal zipper - cuffed - baggy - wide legged - unlined - satin or satin feel material around inside waist
*this a really high quality suit - very well made
*labels: Sherman's Clothes, UGWA Union Label (approx 1935 - 1955 - this union label is harder to date so this my best guess using know information and research)
*no size labels - you must see measurements to ensure best fit
*pants are clean inside
*suit is in fantastic condition - there is one small mend spot on back right shoulder as shown in photo - it is so rare to find these old wool suits without a bunch of moth holes - just a super rare find in a fantastic color
*dry clean only - suit has been dry cleaned and comes to you ready to wear

Measurements are approximate and are taken with garment buttoned/zipped, lying flat and doubled where appropriate. Please measure a similar well-fitting garment of your own for comparison. When thinking about measurements, remember that you need to fit comfortably INSIDE the garment. If you are the exact measurements of the garment, you risk damage to the garment and it will not be a good fit for you.

I do my best to describe and photograph colors but please remember that cameras, flash, and monitors can affect viewing.
