This is another very rare suit since suits from this period are getting more difficult to find, especially in good condition and a 'wearable' size like this one. A few moth holes in the jacket and trousers, they are stitched up, not too apparent and don't take away from this gorgeous suit. A rare piece of wearable art.
The flannel of this sports coat is some of the softest I've ever seen. This jacket was custom tailored back in the 1930s and the quality shows. It's a manly and stylish sports coat that will help you dress your best. Lovely dark maroon pinstripes on a brown background.
I just recently found this one for myself but have decided to part with it because it is just a tad too large for me. My loss is your gain. You never see one like this again, it's fantastically unique. Bold, wide herringbone with square patch pockets. Very Hollywood and it could be yours. Check it out.
A nice, conservative, attractive pinstripe suit from the WW2-era. Not a lot issues with this suit at all. It does, however, have a neat 'former' issue. One part of the right leg has an expertly executed example of reweaving. Reweaving is the lost art of making a hole invisible by hand-weaving individual threads from another area of the garment into the hole. Let me tell you, the reweaving on this suit is expertly done and is near invisible. This has been the first and only example of vintage reweaving I've ever seen. I love this suit but alas, not the best fit so off it goes.
The reweave spot. Nearly invisible!
I have a lot more high quality pieces that will be going up for sale within the next few days and weeks so keep your eyes glued to this blog as well as the Houndstooth Facebook page.
