    1930s eBay.fr jacket. Amazing lapels

    Look at those lapels! Quite a small jacket. It may be German.

    looks like yet another of the as yet unclassifiable 'European dinner-jacket type jacket but without grosgrain lapels and maybe a waiter's or band member's jacket'. catchy title non ?
    how about a vintage Euro evening jacket.

    On the 'Black Suits' thread (http://www.thefedoralounge.com/showt...ck-Suit/page11), Flat Foot Floey has just posted an advert from 1931 for a 'Nachmittag und Abend' (Afternoon and Evening suit). Certainly a better description than 'European dinner-jacket type jacket but without grosgrain lapels and maybe a waiter's or band member's jacket'.

    I think 'Nachmittag und Abend' has a nice ring to it. After all, the suits/jackets are often German, so maybe we owe it to the Germans to adopt their original phrase?

    Any more suggestions?

    This one with the silk covered buttons would suggest to me that it was not a waiter or band-member's jacket. It probably would have come with trousers in the same fabric, so not a stroller. I posted a similar 1920s suit in the German Suits thread.
