I had a question from one of the IndyGear guys about suits and thought I would share the information that I gave him here. He was asking whether or not double breasted suits in the 30's were common, and how common were cuffed pants on suits, and did Indy's suit have cuffs. In the 20's the pants were more close fitting and cuffs were almost never seen. The pants were shorter too, above the shoe. Spats were easy to see that way. Single breasted jackets were the norm and they were very fitted, or if you bought off the rack (a new idea back then) they were straight down formless sack shaped. Lapels were narrow In the 30's pants became wider legged (23" sometimes) and cuffs were seen all over the place... not stingy cuffs either, but up to 1 3/4" to 2" deep. You have to fight a tailor to do that today, but it looked great. Extra fabric was left on the bottom of the pants to ad weight, and lengths varied but alot of time went to the top of a shoes hard leather heel. The 30's was really a boomtime for double breasted jackets and they could be seen in almost equal proportion to single breasted. Sports jackets were for the most part single breasted with the occasional double breasted tweed or blazer. lapels were wider than now Today fabrics are much lighter and creases don't keep as well. but I like a deep cuff no matter how tall you are or heavy. In the 40's double breasted jackets and cuffs on pants were hard to find because of war rationing. In regards to Indy's blue suit. it looks like a 30's suit. High cut double breasted navy with a fitted waist. I believe there were no cuffs on it.
