Description

REDUCED!!! Vintage 1940's Nobbson Tan and Cream Checked Suit

I love this suit! It looks like it stepped righout out of a 1940's movie set - sophisticated and very classy! The suit is done in a tiny pattern (similar to a houndstooth) of tan and beige checks. The fitted jacket has a five (5) material covered button front closure. The buttons are nicely detailed (see photo close-ups). The jacket has padded shoulders and long, fitted sleeves with an asymmetrical turned up cuff. The side pockets are more for decoration and actual use as they are very shallow, but they add a lot of style to the jacket (see photo close-up). The jacket is fully lined and has a label which reads, "Nobbson, The Accepted Style Center, Fort Wayne". The matching skirt is unlined and is done in a very flattering cut - not straight, yet not quite and A-line. The waistband has a bit of elastic in the back giving a bit more flexibility in waist size. The skirt has a side metal zipper and button closure. The front of the skirt is done in two (2) panels whereas the back of the skirt has three (3) panels. Both the jacket and the skirt are in very good condition and very wearable. You would be sure to turn heads in this suit!.

The approximate measurements are (measurements taken flat and doubled where appropriate):

Bust = 36"
Shoulder to Shoulder = 16"
Sleeve Length = 24"
Waist = 29"
Jacket Length (center back neck to hemline) = 26"
Skirt Waist = 24-26"
Skirt Hips = 39"
Skirt Length = 26"

The suit is displayed on a dress form with the following measurements and it fits nicely on this form:

Bust = 35"
Waist = 26"
Hips = 35 1/2"
