    Thanks! The hat is a 1950s Stetson Ivy League.

    Trying on light brown Cricketeer today.
    Rag and Bone, looks cool.
    Blood, nice snag. I've found most of my suits, coats, hats at thrift shops. Poppin' tags!

    Thanks mate, I was on it like a cat on a kipper, when I see it. I have another coming this week a three piece 1940's bespoke suit, dark blue double breasted pinstripe.
    I think the jacket and waistcoat will fit fine, but the pants are 40 waist, i am a 32, so will just have to see what i can do with it.
    I will upload pictures when i get it.

    Cool, I found my pinstriped, navy blue suit at the Goodwill on my street. I didn't even have to alter it, which is always a surprise because I'm a 42 XL. It's not really a super old suit but I like the cut.

    Got this suit today for 23$ and I'm a bit unsure how old it is, 40's? 50's? Different?

    Black euro suits are very hard to date. I guess 40s to early 50 because of the wide lapels, wide legs and the suspender "rabbit ears" on the trousers. The label looks newer though.

    Great price for this suit! Style-wise perfectly 1930-40's (is the waist strongly accentuated?) - the labels indeed look rather 1950ish.
    In any case a solid and conservative European mid-1930's to 50's suit... they didn't change much within this time frame.

    Actually the waistcoat is fine I just changed the brightness and contrast on the picture, should have taken another picture.

    No I don't mean the waistcoat. I was asking about the fit of the jacket waist. Is it strongly taken in (tighter around the body) - thus creating an "hour-glass" silhouette?

    Oh sorry, I must have been in my own thoughts and misread your post. I'll let the picture speak for themselves, yes it does give that hour-glass silhouette. Maybe a bit too much even...

    Thanks for the photo. Nice! The more "hour-glass" the better. :cool:

    I think that suit looks really nice. I know that some people on the FL don't like black suits, but that looks splendid. You were lucky to find it at such a good price.

    I don't recall any black haters here in the Suits section , though I've noticed that the folks in the Hats section ain't to keen on black lids.
