    My kind of jacket. I have one very similar that i posted to 'What are you wearing?'. I find them super-versatile really.

    Wow such an Italian verve and peacock attitude in that suit with a bit of a salute to British Norfolk jackets

    This is the second fancy back Yugoslavian corduroy jacket you've found isn't it?

    The other one was "Scotts Gray", and had a pretty interesting flecked cord. Went for a shocking price for its vintage.

    Here's a 70s conservative suit I have. Not sure if it emulates 30s or 40s. The first pics have it done with the older stuff in the later with the 70s style. Also have a very cool Northfolk beltback that I wish fit me.

    Jamesmac, the suit is nice, and your accessories definitely give the whole outfit a mid 20th century look.
    I wouldn't say that the suit specifically imitates the 30s or 40s, but like you say it is relatively conservative- the 1970s style of shoulders have more in common with the late 20s-mid 30s, 'roped' (the way the sleevehead has some height near the seam) and quite narrow with the wearer's shoulder pocking in the sleevehead a bit.
    generally speaking, from the mid 30s to the 50s shoulder construction is more padded and wide, especially in the late 40s to early 50s.

    Nice jacket Dinerman, has an RL look to it.

    Thanks. The 3 piece suit has more shoulder padding the all my other suits. The Norfolk belt back is about 3 sizes too small so that's why it looks tight in the shoulders I can barely button that one but I got it very cheap so couldn't pass it up

    It's a real nuisance when you find something you really like and the size is against you. You just know that somewhere else there's another fellow with a similar coat that is too big.

    I know I feel like that all the time . One thing I forgot to mention is the trousers for that suit are high waisted single pleated and cuffed.

    Here's a fitting for my new houndstooth belted back.

    It's pretty much 90% finished. Just needs the buttons sewn in and pressing.
