    Just right. Except the pants are too tight (even when let out). :eek:

    No actually the jacket is too snug as well. Well no temptation then (a bit pricey anyway). :D

    The jacket buttons are fastened the wrong way. :D
  7. I think that suit would fit me if I took up the hems on the trousers. But the width of the shoulders in the coat is a BIT much, I think. At any rate, the price scared me off before the measurements did.
  8. A reasonable price for such a suit. I haven't heard of Famo-Spun fabric before.
  9. i imagine that a blend of linen and angora would be very similar to Palm Beach in feel. might have been a Palm Beach (inspired) rival fabric.
  10. oh yes, certainly. What was PB? linen, cotton and mohair?
  11. Sears 1923 catalogue states PB suit fabric as only mohair and cotton (roughly 50% of each).

    a 30s PB tie label states rayon (50%), mohair(32%), cotton (13%) and nylon (5%).

    ... so clearly the blend varied, and might not have even included linen, though most people seem to assume it does. in fact the suit that started this thread may not include linen.
