6 X 2 double breasted, with medium sized lapels, quite a classic style that never really went out of mainstream fashion, except roughly around the 1955-1967 period, when small lapels ruled and the double breasted suit was cast aside for the more simple 2 and 3 button single breasted numbers. This suit is a prime example from the period. Dated July 30th 1926, it's hard to believe it's 86 years old! While classic, there are some features that set it apart from other eras. The shoulder padding is very minimal, giving a more natural silhouette, and the cuffs feature only 2 buttons, which from what I've seen stuck around for a bit in the '30s and early '40s. Then again in the '60s and '70s.
This suit features a high-gorge (the area where the lapels cross in my book) and the mid size lapels work nicely with the natural silhouette of the suit.
Small simple label.
A vintage clothing enthusiasts best friend, a dated tag.
Like the jacket, the pants are in excellent shape. Plain front, medium sized cuffs, big loops.
