Vintage Bespoke Tailored Men's Hand Made Double Breasted Suit Grey, 1940/50s 38 inch Chest. Tailor: S Krett & Sons, London. Jacket Length 34 in (see photo).
Jacket Sleeve Length 26 in (see photo). S Krett & Sons (their slogan was "The Krett Cut is the Correct Cut") based in Tooting at 162C Mitcham Road London SW17 9NJ produced for many years fine bespoke tailored suits of Savile Row quality.
This suit is one such example. Sadly Krett ceased trading in 2008. However their suits live on and the suit on sale here is a reminder of that high standards of master tailoring and craftsmanship. A unique piece of traditional tailoring. This is a classic cut suit and a product of its period.
Considering its age, it is in an excellent condition. The suit has been cared for and well looked after. The suit is made from a cloth with an unusual and elegant check (see photo); also very much a product of its time.
It is smooth and incredibly comfortable to wear, and often attracting favourable and admiring comments. Acquired in 1993, the owner has had great pleasure in wearing this suit but having gained a few pounds the suit is now too small and time to find it another home!
