Today I wore a 1940s DB suit that I found at a local Salvation Army thrift store. For $15 I 'stole' this gem. Very desirable with such bold pinstripes.

The jacket is a bit loose but definitely wearable. The trousers, on the other hand, needed some alterations. I took the waist in a bit and had to let down the legs, which were about 6" too short before altering. I sacrificed the 2" wide cuff (forgive me, I have sinned) and replaced it with a 'faux' cuff. More on the faux cuff in another post.
I'm very happy with the results:
As you can see, the trousers drape nicely thanks to the faux cuff and are very wide at the opening.
Paired with an off-white Wormser "The Texan" fedora and brown and white spectators, this suit is very striking.
