Vintage 1930's 1940's grey double breasted tweed suit size 38 40 long


Suit 

    For sale here is a very rare, unique in our experience, double breasted tweed suit from the 1930's. The suit could perhaps be described as a ' town & Country ' suit although the material is definitely on the tweed side. The trousers are of the wider cut, 1940's style and the body is long, as was the style of other DB suits of that period. It really is quite a special suit.

Archive


Over the last five years we have put together a collection of menswear with the aim to have the archetypal, most typical and most stylish example of all styles of coat, jacket, Blazer and Waistcoat from the twentieth century. In addition we have tried to find ' proto' pieces, items of clothing which show creativity and changes in fashions. In order to help out the fashion industry we have only kept 38 and 40 regular fits ( you can't copy Bespoke unless you know it's a regular fit). The reason too is that I am a 38-40 reg and so can really get an idea of the style and fit. There are a few exceptions to the size rule but not many. Cloth can contribute to the item but is not the primary focus.

The condition of the clothes isn't important but some of course will be excellent and ready to wear. The three designations for condition are ' poor', ' good' and 'excellent'. If you are intending to wear the items then really ignore all but ' excellent'.

Terms - these clothes are priced to not be sold but rather to be borrowed and returned with a restocking fee. The fee is 25% of the sale price. If you intend to borrow several items please contact us directly. Of course you can keep the items if you prefer. The archive is in storage and so will be expanding as time allows.

These items only make it in to the archive if they are particularly special, perfect examples of styles or of peaks in sartorial history of costume in the UK. Of course this is not a complete library and we are always looking for new items.
