    Does anyone have a very nice 1930s or 1940s suit that is just a little short? Well I have a couple of very nice 1940s DB suits that are a tad long on me and would like to trade. This one here fits like a 40R. Very good condition! I can wear 38Short or 40Short.
    PM me if you are interested.
    I am looking for a suit with coat that is 29" in length, from the collar seam down back. The suits I have are 30" long on the coats.

    Here is the first one:
    Hart Schaffner & Marx Blue pinstripe 3 piece dated 1940? (last number is blured and so is copyright date on union tag)
    Also says size 42 on inside.

    I wish I did, I have been dying to land a blue pinstripe suit!
    Anything else you are looking for? I have a few pairs of 50's pants with the tags still on them, plus some early 50's (I think) dress shirts, still pinned and in a box.
    (I also have a suit jacket, dated 1940, single-breasted peaked label, made in Honduras, but it's not "cherry." You can see under the lapels that it has faded and the lining is worn.)

    I have a 30s/40s 2-piece, double-breasted, flannel, navy, pinstripe/ropestripe that might be exactly what you're looking for. I'll send you an email.

    I forgot, I also have an early 50's suit, medium blue, tagged size 38 (but it's a bit bigger) with the tags still on it.
    Single breasted, summerweight wool (rayon wool blend.)
