Oh, most of those German suits are actually pretty heavy, with a nice full lining to boot, thank you. I guess I'm on the safe side when I assume that Finnish suits tend to be on the darker end of the luma scale as well, eh?
Doub! again I thought faster than I did write what I ment is that Finnish suits like German/european suits are heavier compared to US made. I lost quite several words in my original post.
Last year I bought a nice straightforward, British-made chalk stripe suit from 1949. I'm sad to say that I had to return it as there were one or two rather quirky things about the pants, which the seller and I only really discovered once it had arrived here (the strangest thing I've ever seen). That suit really wore like iron!
Does anybody recognize the door in the background?
...not that the current selection isn't impressive... it is; the amount of quality vintage suits on Britbay has gone up by about 95% overnight since this seller's arrival. but i'm waiting for the belted-backs before i fork over big money.
