A wonderful green tweed (again, green seemed to be the color that year) belted back jacket. A Holy Grail for vintage enthusiasts. Also note the number of pockets, creating no need for a vest.

A conservative late-'30s 3-piece suit, good for business. Note the green fedora the subject is holding.

A rather unique suit with a "blade back" (often called a bi-swing back) for better movement in the arms and shoulders. The bi-swing back was often seen combined with belted backs but as the illustration above shows this was not always the case.
Again, note the green fedora.

A fine looking pinstripe suit, something a dandy might be drawn to.
