Gorgeous suit. And one of those rare 30s specimens with a high rear vent.
Lovely! I was already wondering about those shoulder pleats - have to confess that I've never seen the likes of it before. And I'm still amazed to see vents on old jackets like this, especially with a belted back.
sorry to keep harping on about the 20s but in teens and 1920s catalogues it was rare to see a fancy-back-jacket without a rear vent. seems they fizzled out by the early 30s but cropped up intermittently after that.
Yes, I know. That is, I've read about it time and time again, but apart from catalogue illustrations I've rarely ever seen any photos of the real stuff, much less in person. That's why I keep to be amazed by those vents once I see them. Lack of exposure...
one i haven't posted before (sorry Mario, i know you hate me by now )
American, dated 1936, no maker's label. trousers have 3 inch high waistband and 11.5 inch bottoms.
Easy my friend, easy. I'm actually very, very picky about who is worth to find himself at the receiving end of my hate. It usually takes a lot to get there. Ignorance, arrogance, selfishness... Come to think of selfishness: why are you keeping all those wonderful suits to yourself, eh? Er...just kiddin'...
Well, what can I say? Just another gorgeous suit. That waistband is a real killer. Beautiful fabric too. I'm usually not a great fan of checks but that subtle reddish overcheck is simply stunning. And I'm amazed to see that the hip pockets come at quite an angle. I think this is a bit like my (lack of) experience with vented belt-back jackets: I simply haven't seen a lot of those yet.
thing is, the waistband looks odd when worn. the top of the trousers is standard height for a 30s trouser, but because the waistband is so deep it makes the fly area look short. the overall effect is rather like flamenco trousers or similar. in the archive rather than the frequently worn section. might sell it actually.
I see. Thought they would look a bit like ReVamp's Duke trousers (presented here by a certain Marc Chevallier).
What an astounding notion to have stuff simply for the archive(s)... :dizzy:
Everything about that is great.
:arated: I'd gladly wear it!
HBK, please do post more pics of this wonderful suit. Details of the trousers, pleated back and inside would be much appreciated.
Great suit!! :eusa_clap:eusa_clap:eusa_clap Wish I could find nice rare suits like that!
hbk the jacket on yours reminds me a lot of this British/Australian one of mine.
You guys are killing me...simple as that!
Yep, HBK, Baron Kurtz (and Marc Chevalier) belong in jail for killing me a long time ago. And not just once. Thank God us cats got nine lives.
'36 Union Labels.
1936 Union Labels. I really like the lapels on this one …
WOW, this one is fantastic. I absolutely love that. What material is it? It almost looks like linen.
It's a sort-of weak fawn colour with orange and white double double pin stripes.
