1930s vertical/horizontal belted youth knicker suit
I made a purchase of a belt-back suit coat just recently and the place where I found it also had a knicker suit from what was presumably the 1920s or 1930s. The size was for a youth, as I am a 38 and it would not come close to fitting me.
The actual suit was in poor shape - lots of wear, some tears, moth nips, etc, but looked complete, and the price was just a few dozen $$. I can't remember the thread, but someone here posted a picture of nearly the exact same suit - belts going up vertically around the shoulders and then around the waist. It was a heavy brown tweed.
I couldn't justify getting it because I couldn't wear it but if you are interested in it, feel free to PM me.

sounds like a Norfolk style suit you're describing.
