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

*these are getting harder and harder to find and I love this color!!!
*great 1940s double breasted wool suit with just a hint of gangster cut
*winter weight
*blend of different shades of blue for an overall blue plaid effect
*jacket is 6 button double breasted - 4 on the cuff - no back vents - partial petal lining in great pink/purple color- nice big peaked lapels - double besom pockets - slim cut - structured shoulder pads
*trousers are baggy pleated front - metal zipper - single button - unlined - cuffed - 6 buttons inside waistband for braces - belt loops with just the slightest drop
*designer/maker label(s): Richman Brothers, tailors tag - hard to read but can barely make out the 4 in the 1940 date
*size label(s): none - you must see measurements to ensure best fit
*pants do have staining inside - yellowing around waistband and on pockets, other general staining throughout - this did not come clean at dry cleaner and is most likely permanent
*condition: there are no condition issues to the outer visible areas of the suit - it really is a looker. As mentioned, the inside of the pants is discolored and there is also some darkening to the underarm area of the lining of the jacket. Additionally, it appears the waistband of the pants has been let out/altered to current size. Although these issues do not affect wearability, I have lowered my usual asking price by $50.00.
*care - 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.
