    Offering for sale this gray two piece Clothcraft suit made for the Toggery in Butte, MT in the early 1950s. A conservative take on the Bold Look. Condition is excellent, no tears, mothing, odors, or repairs.

    Jacket boasts a slightly slouchy four-on-six button stance, with jigger in tact and jetted pockets. The back is ventless. Interior is pedal lined. Sleeves have been adjusted to accommodate the larger cuffs of modern dress shirts, with three non-functioning buttons at each cuff.

    Trousers have dropped belt loops and suspender buttons. Trouser waist is secured with a combination of metal snap buttons and zipper.

    Measurements for the jacket are as follows -
    Shoulder to Shoulder: 18 Inches
    Underarm to Underarm: 18 1/2 inches
    Sleeve Length: 24 1/2 inches
    Coat Length: 32 inches

    Measurements for the trousers are as follows -
    Waist: 15 Inches, with 3 to let
    Inseam: 30 1/2 with an additional 3/4 inch in the hem
    Cuff: 1 3/4 inches
    Rise: 12 inches
    Width-at-hem: 9 inches

    Asking $100.00 plus shipping costs, though I am open to all reasonable offers. Payment to be made via Paypal.

    I like, but I think it's too long. Is the back length from the top or bottom of the collar?

    Top of collar. The lowered button stance mitigates the effect of the long jacket somewhat.

    Thanks, Patrick. I'm afraid it's too long in the torso. Too bad, I need a new suit or five.
