    The suit from the Deutsche Demokratische Republik. 1980s, I guess.

    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.

    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.
