Fab Vintage 1940s Mens US Brown Pinstripe Suit Jacket Trousers 36 w /43 chest
Here we have an awesome 1940s suit - the cut, the shape, the lapels. This truly is a beautiful suit dating from 1941 and done in a brown wool with multi pin striping.

The partially lined jacket features a 6 x 2 front, three on the cuff, flapped waist pockets, welt breast pocket, shoulder padding, and a tapered/fitted waist profile. The unlined trousers feature a button fly, forward pleats, a tapered leg profile, and cuffed hems. There are unfortunately some holes on the front and crotch of the trousers and there is one small hole on the front of the jacket that is hidden under the lapel. All are shown in photos, as are the repairs we have had done to them by a seamstress. The inside of the trousers are somewhat, ahem, stained hence the moth holes....

Suit is heavier weight and will work well for cool and cold weather. My husband is actually a 32 waist, with a 32 leg, but found he could make these trousers work by wearing them slightly lower on the hips- obviously not visible with the jacket on (as is the case with the worst, darned moth holes). And he's a 42 chest, hence the jacket looking a little large on him, but to be fair, the very boxy style was the whole point so not an issue. Store/Maker/Designer label: Lyon Tailors, Made to Order Clothing. 1939 - 1949 ACWA union label. 24" Sleeves + 1.75" of extra fabric for alterations purposes.

19 Shoulders (fairly substantial shoulder padding as would be expected from this era). 30 Total Length (in back - down the middle - from top of collar to bottom of hem).

36 Waist (these have been let out as far as possible). 1 of extra to let down without losing the cuff.

15 Rise (from middle of diamond gusset in crotch). 19.5 Leg Circumference - at ankle/bottom.
