The suit from the Deutsche Demokratische Republik. 1980s, I guess.
love this suit Michael, would it be 40s?
Thanks Michael. It's possible it's 40s. There are no marks in it at all, so I think it was made by a local tailor sometime in the past.
Got two suits for the price of one at Jos A. Bank! This is the dark gray one. The other is a dark blue.
Blue label Ralph Lauren Italian made suit.
NOS condition 1980-90's Hugo Boss db suit
My partner once bought from an estate shop in Rhode Island a pinstripe navy wool suit that had belonged to Humphrey Bogart. Reportedly, Bogart had a summer place in eastern Rhode Island or nearby Massachusetts. Tonight I decided to try it on. It would fit really well if I were to lose some weight. Not too bad regardless. Apologies for the two-day growth of beard; I meant the photos to be taken tomorrow, but Lorain decided to take them now.
My gut says late 40s. While I own patterns for female suits, there's still a similarity in tailoring flavor. I have a very specific taste in 40s tailoring. I'm comparing it to the cut that [I see here], on the left.
I think I cut myself on the sharpness of this suit. Hugo Boss is one of my top 5 favorites. My brother's quite the suit aficionado, so I've learned to appreciate great work, lol.
I got this one at a local Goodwill. I found the three pieces all separated, in the pants/jackets/vests sections of the store. It was an exciting feeling putting it all together, and it felt even better when I found out that it fit! It's wool, made by Hart Schaffner & Marx. Tag says it was made December 22nd, 1977. I think the wide lapels make it look similar to a 1930s style suit. Would anyone agree? I'm curious to hear thoughts. I'm hoping I can use a late 20th-century suit to pull off an early 20th-century look.
Looks good on you man. A lot of those 70's era suits (when they weren't made of horrible polyester) had quite a lot of recycled 1920s-1930s influence in them- wide lapels, three piece etc. Films like the Great Gatsby and Chinatown I think were quite influential on menswear at the time. The key when thrifting is to find the ones with quality fabrics!
