What a smashing 1940s suit! This striking example has exquisite tailoring and a handsome weave to the cloth as well. Made of excellent all wool suiting, gray and blue windowpane plaid are given extra dimension with heathered white. Note the beautiful stitching that accents the vented pockets - no decade has ever done suits like the 1940s did them! Closes with five cute buttons that match the buttons on the pockets - and there's still the original extra button sewn inside the jacket, too. The jacket is all lined with gray rayon crepe. The fitted skirt features a kick pleat and closes with a metal zipper.

I found one moth chew at the hem of the skirt, quite luckily where it is backed by the selvage. There are three surface chews, seen only by holding the skirt to the light, that are all but invisible from exterior. Photos are available. I find no other issues to note! Fresh and ready to wear.
