Post pictures of your 1930s suits in this thread.
Suits of distinction from page 1-60 of the show us your suits thread.
I'm very glad to say that these 2 both now belong to me. The blue DB is a belted back also.
I can tell that if this thread really gets going I'll be coming back regulary for some satorial eye candy. Very well done so far.
i have the honour of owning the the first suit ever sold by Crosby Square (aka Mr Chevalier) on ebay. this one:
Palm Beach suit. Came to me via Atterbury Dodd.
This photo was taken before I let out the jacket a bit.
That's the stuff my dreams are made of but alas...
A round of applause for all these suits :eusa_clap:eusa_clap:eusa_clap:eusa_clap:eusa_clap:eusa_clap
Keep them coming!
Yes you do! And this belted-back suit is a three-piece: jacket, pants and vest!
I like how this thread is going chaps. Not much talk, just show the suits. maybe we could all agree that one person will give kudos to a suit, and the rest are included by implication. That should help to keep the chit-chat down and the pic count up!
A very nice belted back number in my favourite 2 button notch lapel style 3 piece. This one, IIRC, has 1936 union labels in it:
Wow! When I see all these wonderful suits I wish I could wear a 38R.
Could you upload a side shot of the trousers, please?
I'll have a lok for a picture of the trousers. they're pretty nondescript. Flat front normal waistband, button fly.
Check out Hogspear on British eBay. He's currently got up a bunch of what appear to be older suits made for a 6 foot 7 inch chap.
This British one I sold was easily a 44 long and stout. The real beauty of this suit was in the fabric. Buttery soft to the touch, it was. Truly remarkable.
Very high fishtail. Note the attention to detail down the rear seam.
Nice one! And up for sale, too...
What detail are we talking about here?
My guess is that he means the pin stripes all meeting exactly at the rear seam, resulting in an arrow pattern.
I love these two, with the 'floating' hat.
Gents - This thread is a 'visual' showcase of 1930's suits and 'should be' a great resource for easy referencing. It's not a 'silly thread' so *please* don't dilute it as it just creates more unecessary work for the Admin to edit & clean up.
Thankyou for your cooperation in this Gentlemen. Now move along please.

Aha. If that is what he meant, I wouldn't call it attention to detail, as it would actually require more work from the tailor not to have the stripes match at the rear seam.
