    What a fantastic pair. Really great find. Would make my year if I could run onto something like that.

    Thanks for posting them,
    Michael

    The patch pockets and streamlined early 30's cut are really nice. Got this suit for a song too. It's probably my most versatile vintage suit.

    Thanks, Justin. The suit is gone for alterations, will work on fit pics when it returns. Really stunning that this suit is so old.

    Its probably a 37R I'm about a 38R. So there pretty small for most people. Thankfully I fit into one of them though.

    Fantastic! These suits of the last two pages are the best I've seen in a long time.
    The fabrics, the patterns, the cuts - great!
    Congratulations to Peter and Mondo!

    Gee, great find Justin. NRA suits in such condition are difficult to come by. With two pairs of pants, nontheless. The jacket looks a bit roomy for you--alterations would go a long way for this suit!

    I might have the waist taken in. But it fits pretty well when buttoned, so that is a big maybe

    I'll try to slim down to fit in it but, If i cant it might possibly be available for purchase down the road.

    Edit: Just measured the fleck suit its a size 34" chest I was way off with 37R. Looks like I actually fit into a 36R suit the pinstripe one. Sorry guys.

    Hmm...Is the chest circumference actually 34'' or is it made for a man with a 34'' chest? If the latter, I would be interested in buying it from you.

    If he says he can fit into a 36 size and that jacket is tight under armpits, then I believe that maybe the actual chest of that jacket measures like 36.5, 37 inches.

    Love the look. I’ve tried to find some suits from the era but all I’ve found are size 36 & 38 and I’m a minimum 42.

    Yea, and then nearly all the late 40's/early 50's jackets are in 42R! :D

    Wow, great find! It fits very well. To be honest, I would opt for a hat with a wider brim to match your face and the rest of the fit. Props! Any shop labels or tags inside?
