ITEM: Vintage 1920s -early 1930s mens three piece wool suit. This is an incredible find!
We acquired this suit from a local area estate where the gentlemen had been an undertaker during the 1920s-1950s. Not too often do you find the suits with the striped pants and the jackets with the tails! Handcrafted by Kuppenheimer for Maurice L Rothschild. The jacket has two button closure with buttons on the cuffs for accent (one button missing). The front of the jacket starts tapering at the waist and then extends down to the back tails.The back waist has two buttons for accents and the tails have a long 18.5 tailored slit for comfort and ease when walking and sitting. There is one pocket on the outer chest and one in the inner lining. The inner sleeve linings feel like a silk or silk blend type fabric and they have some minor shred which is not uncommon. I think the easiest cure might be to just remove the lining all together. There is a narrow 1/4 hole on the outer shell near one pit but I think this could be mended with a few simple stitches.
The wool fabric is in real nice condition but I did notice three very minor tiny /poke size holes on the back side but they do not go all the way through the lining. I think you could easily mend them if it bothered you, but otherwise I think you could wear it as is. The vest has five button closure, four pockets on the shell and back belt with metal buckle so you can adjust it to your most comfortable fit. Pointed hem on the front and straight on the back. The lining has some discolorations but otherwise I don't see any wrong with the vest.
The pants are a classy striped pattern with button fly, straight waist with flat front, vertical cut hand pockets and two horizontal cut back pockets. One back pocket should have button closure but the button is missing. The inner front and side lining has buttons for suspenders, and the back outer waist has suspender buttons as well. There are two minor tiny poke holes on the front and two on the back that I noticed.
These can all be easily mended if they bother you. We had all three pieces professionally dry cleaned so you will be getting this suit in good clean condition! SIZE: Measurements taken with the garments closed and laying flat. Shoulders (seam to seam): 17. Chest pit to pit (20) x 2: 40.
