    Another good one.

    Nice tie, by the way - looks like a Tootal 'Black Quality' (by the look of the large paisley patern)?

    Thanks - the tie is from Floey. It is a German ¨Rhodia΅ pure silk.
    In the tie-thread I have some more recent tie finds (from a lot).

    "Frey"

    I might have mistakenly posted this in the French suits thread a while ago. I found it in Paris but the features make me think it's German. 1930s or 40s? Tailor is "Frey". I think it's been shortened, but when I took apart the skirt seam I couldn't see any obvious evidence. done professionally, maybe?

    I agree that it is from the German(-speaking) part of Europe.
    Frey is a common name in Germany, and the tongues around the interior pockets are a typical feature.

    I think it has been shortened, but only a very little bit. It is less the proportions (which look about right for ca. 1938) but the hard angular edge of the lower front, instead of the usual slight curve.

    SB jackets with a dead straight and right-angled front edge / corner existed (me and BK saw one -probably late 20s early 30s- in a London shop) but the one above isn't dead straight; it has a slight cutaway which makes me think its had about an inch and a half removed from the bottom edge, and would originally have had a sharp curved corner.

    1930s Thornproof tweed 3-piece sports suit with breeches.
    Size 40 R tending slightly to the shorter side. Too short for my limbs anyway.

    Around 30 suits (20 for myself) and 20 sportcoats and odd jackets (half of them for myself).
    As I sell and exchange all the time it is sometimes hard to keep track.

    That's more suits than some people have for their complete wardrobe (including underwear)!

    And that thornproof fabric is amazing.

    Under artificial light, the suit looks rather black. Under sunlight more navy.

    The legs are 10.6 inches wide... so more typically 40's.

    Interestingly the interior of the hip pockets is made from the suiting fabric.

    That tie is absolutely gorgeous. Love it. The suit is fantastic as well! Thanks for sharing it
