again from Sweden ...another film actor Nils Asther circa 1916
Yes, it felt later to me too. But when I saw the date, I didn't look further. Also, for some reason it doesn't surprise me at all this image is Dutch!
You could always leave the belt closed.
Same here in South Florida. I love my boater, and get complements continually.
1910's German suit. Note the fancy fabric with multiple patterns and colors.
What year would you guesstimate this to be?
Wow, that is some awesome fabric. Please tell me that it is a tiny size.
No, it is rather large for that time period (size 40-42).
I thought you might enjoy to see two pre-20's Italian linings - I have been visiting sellers of period swatch books.
1912? Something like that. That cut would be called conservative later on, and I would think someone buying a conservative suit wouldn't want such wild cloth. I also think the back-belt, fishtail would be gone later. Just a guess. The fabric, as Papperskatt said, is fantastic!
Nice to see those linings! Would go well with Fastuni's suit, I guess!
I image this wild suit would have had equally wild fabrics as well?
The purveyor of the Suedehead suit (what with all those pockets)! INteresting detailing - could *just* accept the pockets but not the overlapping belt IMO
so dress like that ...and show us....
take a pic ...show us how it looks!
I beg your pardon?
I'm crying here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Today I found some odd suit parts. What do you guys think? Should I buy them? I am hesitant as they would have very little use in my cramped closet.
Perhaps I need to try them on with the other clothes being more appropriate.
Otherwise I would be very interested in the first jacket/waistcoat
If they don't work when you try them with more appropriate trousers then you can sell them.
Just remember, how often do you find pre-1920s clothes in your size? Buy them before someone else does.
Haha! These clothes always come in my size! I'll buy the green ones. I'll keep you in mind dostioffsky. I am a 37 inch chest 29 waist for reference.
Good choice, Broccoli. I might be interested, too. Put me second in line. The brown one must have been a nice coat once, but it's a little too far gone in my opinion.
With the brown buttons, the green check might work with mid brown, tan or ginger trousers. Couldn't think of any other shades except for those fancy pattern with hard-to-define colors, but who has enough of those to pick one that harmonizes.
I'm becoming more hesitant of the "you can always sell it" notion. It doesn't always work out that way.
