I really can't get enough of this one. Almost makes me sad that it will warm up, someday.

Have a great suit day,
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.

Great fabric an nice cut - very 20ish with the long silhoutte.
That's exactly was in my mind - to recreate silhouette of '20 slim "jazz suits".
But in my opinion the jacket isn't long. It is normal! Modern "fashion" jacket of Zara of H&M are just short, too short, they don't even cover your buttocks completely. Longer vintage jackets looks more natural and follow natural proportions of human body.
