    Thank you guys, I'm really happy with it. Added bonus is my new more casual options with my other suit like in some ad's that show suit separates.

    Nice! I do that with my solid (charcoal, mid and light grey) flannel suits.

    I believe those particular suits can lend themselves to a lot of combinations
     
  4. Here's a nice one that I'm putting on eBay today.

    Why would you want to sell that? Does it fit you? It's freaking beautiful.
     
  7. I never wear it. Belted back suits aren't really my style, tbh. I prefer odd jackets for belted backs.

    how many belted back suits did you have to buy before you worked that out ?;)
     
  9. Well, I never had that many.;) I realised about 2 years ago that I always wore the jackets and trousers of belt back suits as separates; so obviously something was going on in my head to convince me to not wear them as complete outfits.

    Someone is being very modest in evading the question.
     
  11. More memory loss than modesty. I just can't remember how many I've had/sold. I think I currently have 5 belt back suits left. Two of those are on hold, this one and another for sale. On the other the trousers are pretty much shot (horribly yellowed on the thighs), so I'll keep it as an awesome sportscoat. I have 2 other sportscoats, including the British/Australian one. (I have found 2 belted back suits - including the one above - and 2 jackets in London stores.)

  13. Yeah, I would have offered it to you if it was your size. But them legs and arms just won't come down far enough!

    Thank you, yes for a suit that I had never tried on or even seen, when it arrived I was blown away with just how great it fitted.
    I do own a few suits but this is my first genuine 1940's suit, and they feel so much different when worn compared to my newer suits, one is the heavily padded shoulders, and no back vents, plus slightly taken in at the sides, just feels great to wear.
    Purchased off Etsy recently from a top seller.

    I really love DB suits from that era. If I could, I wish I could get one someday.

    It took me a while to find one that I liked the look of, plus without to much damage, I got lucky with this one it looks new, no dreaded moth holes or stains and it was even dry cleaned with the sale, which was a bonus as that costs about 30 dollars here.
