This is a stunning suit. We believe it dates to the early 1940's. British made by Parkins of Newton Abbot. The fabric is a dark navy colour with two tone thin stripe fairly thick lovely quality, pure wool we imagine.The jacket has peak lapels, 2x2 double breasted, fully lined, un-vented. The vest/waistcoat is four pocket, strap at the rear, extra button hole for pocket watch.
The trousers are fishtail style, single pleat, buttoned fly, buttons for suspenders. Condition overall is very good for the age, it would benefit from a dry clean as it's been in storage for a while and hasen't been worn for quite some time. The only fault we can find is a small moth bite on the rear shoulder see photo. Shoulder to Shoulder 16 1/2.
Shoulder to Cuff 24 1/4. Bottom of collar to hem 28 1/2.Across the waist 15 3/4. Width at hem 8 1/2. Extra fabric to let down from trousers 1 1/4.
