A wonderful American suit from the 1940s by 'Mann-Equin'. Better be quick before I change my mind and this goes back into my wardrobe!

This suit is an absolute classic 1940s style, with a smooth nipped waist and gently padded shoulders. It fastens right to the neck with self covered buttons and has a plain back with a central seam. The sleeves have small slits at the wrist opening. The skirt has a plain front and a central back inverted pleat. It fastens with a metal Able zipper and a clear button. It has a half lining in the seat of the skirt to prevent bagging in the same crepe as lines the jacket.

Made of fabulous soft and lightweight wool, it has a subtle plaid check in lovely heathery colours of plum, teal and gold that reminds me of Scotland. It is lined in a chocolate brown crepe. As well as the 'Mann-Equin by Suitmaster Classics' label it also has a Consumer Protection label.

The brilliant thing about this suit is it is a really nice longer length for the taller ladies out there.

Size approx UK 10/ US 6
Jacket Bust: 38"
Jacket Waist: 31"
Jacket Length: 25 1/4"
Jacket Sleeve: 25 1/2"
Shoulders: 15 1/2"

Skirt Waist: 28"
Skirt Hip: 38"
Skirt Length: 30"

Condition is excellent. Wool outer is excellent and the lining is very good apart from some lightened spots near the shoulder. It almost looks like it has been bleached in these spots but it has not gone through to the outside, so cannot be seen when worn.
