Dated Men's 1940s Suit by Albert Lea

"When the soldiers and sailors came home form WWII, they needed clothes. Lots of clothes. Their old suits didn�t fit or had been cut up for ladies suits and children�s wear. So they went to the tailor in droves. This classic 1940s men�s suit was custom made, and it has all the hallmarks of a immediate post war suit: a double breasted , boxy jacket with wide peaked lapels and big shoulder pads, pleated and cuffed pants and in this case , patch pockets, a feature restricted during the war . The wool is a tan with red and pale grey striping. A great suit and you know a returning solider was darn glad to wear it instead of olive drab Labels: Andrew Boyum Tailor Albert Lea Minnesota & B. H. Vondomin June 1947

Condition: Excellent.

Size: A Sz 42S? Chest: 44", Shoulders 19.5" , Sleeve 24", Neck to Hem 28.5", Waist 34", Outseam 38", Inseam 28", with 1 3/4" cuff and 1 1/2"hem"
