When belted backs still ruled. Green also seemed to be the color that year.
Check out the beltless pleated back on suit D.
I'll take both of the white jackets in 38R, please.
And that's it, unless I upload the boy's and young men's suits...
Pretty amazing. Thanks for the fashion show
Now that i see what they sell I'm pretty upset that they went out of business.
Wonderful, wonderful thread, Thunder ... top notch!
Thanks so much! :eusa_clap

Great. Thanks for posting the images.
Reference threads like this one deserve to be made a sticky!
This one is stylin'. Available with an optional vest.
The Forties begin
Notice that shoulders are nicely broad - not yet the swaggering football pads of postwar opulence, but billowed and shaped full.
Note too that the lapel - in some SB models only - is broadening and the notch moving further down. As it does, the jacket buttons move closer together, with the middle button hitting ever-so-slightly lower.
Many suits retain a 30s look, however, sparer thru the chest and shoulders, with more sewn detail like welts and beltbacks. The style even jumps the shark a bit with a pleated jacket front - which must have been merciless on men with a soft middle.
Finally - it is amazing to notice the variety in ready-to-wear tailoring from one merchandiser. One is reminded that labor was cheaper than cloth then.
Will, you've hit one out of the park today!
