(Please note that I have ended this auction early, and instantly relisted it again as item number 200583119305.  This is because I wanted to advertise it all around the world on Ebay instead of just UK) 

BESPOKE TAILOR MADE 3 PIECE 1950s STYLE TEDDY BOY DRAPE SUIT

MENS EXTRA LARGE SIZE - 6' TALL FITTING

 FOREST GREEN, WITH DARK GREEN VELVET TRIM AND FULLY LINED

CONTRASTING COVERED BUTTONS MADE FROM THE SAME 2 FABRICS

MADE FOR US ABOUT 18 YEARS AGO BY DEL TAILORS (BESPOKE), 87 HIGH ROAD, BENFLEET, ESSEX.  www.deltailors.co.uk  I THINK WE PAID ABOUT £400 BACK THEN, AS IT IS SUCH TOP QUALITY HEAVYWEIGHT WOOL FABRIC AND WORKMANSHIP.  WE ARE FAIRLY SURE THIS IS 100% WOOL, IF OUR MEMORY SERVES US RIGHT.  WE HAVE HAD 2 OTHER FANTASTIC VINTAGE STYLE SUITS PROFESSIONALY MADE BY DEL TAILORS, AND CAN ASSURE YOU OF THEIR HIGHEST STANDARDS.  THIS IS SUCH A FABULOUS SUIT FOR A ROCK & ROLL LOVING TED.   IT IS WORTH HAVING ALTERED TO FIT IT'S NEW LUCKY OWNER.  THERE ARE A COUPLE OF OLD PHOTOS OF THE SUIT BEING WORN IN MY YOUTUBE VIDEO (ABOUT HALF WAY THROUGH).  YOU CAN ALSO SEE ONE OF THE OTHER DRAPE SUITS WE HAD MADE IN BLUE.  WE MAY HAVE A PRIVATE BUYER FOR THAT ONE, AS HE DOES NOT WEAR IT ANY MORE  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAz_MEUVCuU

(I JUST PHONED DEL TAILORS OUT OF INTEREST, TO FIND OUT WHAT A SIMILAR SUIT WOULD COST TO HAVE MADE NOW...............  THEY TOLD ME £900!!!!!!!!!!!!)

 

MAIN DRAPE JACKET MEASUREMENTS..........

CHEST MEASURES 48” (PLEASE ALLOW FOR MOVEMENT AND CLOTHING WORN UNDERNEATH)

LENGTH OF JACKET FROM NAPE OF NECK IS 35 1/2"

ACROSS TOP OF SHOULDERS AT THE BACK 22"

TOP OF SLEEVE TO CUFF 26"

UNDERARM TO CUFF 17 1/2"

 

WAISTCOAT MEASUREMENTS

 

CHEST FROM UNDERARMS 47"

 

LENGTH AT THE BACK 24"

 

LENGTH AT THE FRONT 28 1/2"

 

MEASUREMENTS OF TROUSERS

 

WAISTBAND MEASURES 39"

INSIDE LEG 29 1/2" WITH A SPARE 2" HEM TO LET DOWN OR TAKE UP.......  HE NORMALLY TAKES INSIDE LEG 32" BUT THESE FIT HIM PERFECTLY.   THE TEDDY BOY TROUSER LEG STYLING IS TRADITIONALLY  SHORTER THAN REGULAR MODERN WEAR

OUTSIDE LEG IS 39 1/2"

LEG CUFF WIDTH 8 3/8"  

 

IT IS HARD TO PORTRAY THE SHADE OF GREEN ACCURATELY WITH PHOTOS.  IT IS A VERY DEFINATE GREEN, AND NOT A BLUE/GREEN.  IT IS NOT A BRIGHT AND GARISH SHADE, JUST A NICE MEDIUM GREEN COLOUR THAT IS EASY ON THE EYE

  THERE ARE LOTS OF REALLY GOOD SIZED POCKETS......6 IN THE MAIN JACKET, 4 IN THE WAISTCOAT AND 2 IN THE TROUSERS.  THE MAIN DRAPE JACKET HAS POCKET FLAPS DESIGNED TO BE CORRECTLY WORN TUCKED INSIDE OR OUT AS SHOWN 

THE GENERAL CONDITION IS VERY GOOD AND THE BUTTONS ARE ALL INTACT. THERE ARE A FEW VERY SMALL STAINS  AND MARKS THAT SHOULD IMPROVE WITH A GOOD PROFESSIONAL DRY CLEANING.  THE WAISTCOAT LOWER BACK LINING SHOWS A LITTLE STRAINING ON THE CENTRE SEAM

BECAUSE OF THE VALUE OF THIS SUIT, I MUST INSIST ON SIGNED FOR INSURED DELIVERY.  WE ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO CHARGE £4 MAXIMUM 'NORMAL' POST BY EBAY, BUT THIS 3 PEICE SUIT IS  HEAVY AND WEIGHS OVER 2 KILOS WITHOUT PACKAGING.  I HAVE RESEARCHED THIS PROBLEM AND IT WORKS OUT CHEAPER TO SPLIT THE SUIT INTO 2 PARCELS.  THIS IS BECAUSE OF NOT GOING OVER THE 2 KILO WEIGHT THRESHOLD. THE CHEAPEST SAFEST OPTION WITHIN THE UK IS £16 VIA ROYAL MAIL SPECIAL NEXT DAY DELIVERY (THIS INCLUDES BOTH PARCELS) WITH UP TO £500 INSURANCE ON EACH. THIS COVERS PACKAGING AND THE 5% PAYPAL CHARGE ME ADDITIONALY ON POST/PACKING FEES  (THIS IS A SNEAKY EXTRA CHARGE WHICH MANY BUYERS ARE NOT AWARE WE SELLERS ARE FORCED TO PAY .   WE LIVE AND TRAVEL AROUND ESSEX, SO IF YOU ARE LOCAL WE COULD ORGANISE FREE COLLECTION/DELIVERY.  IF ANYONE CAN ADVISE ME OF A CHEAPER INSURED SAFE DELIVERY SERVICE, PLEASE DO LET ME KNOW

IF GOING ABROAD OUSIDE UK PLEASE CONTACT ME, AS I WILL TRY AND FIND THE CHEAPEST SAFEST WAY TO SEND THIS HEAVY PARCEL.  THE SUIT IS OVER 2 KILOS WITHOUT PACKAGING, AND IT WON'T BE CHEAP TO POST UNFORTUNATELY.  I WILL SEND IN 2 PARCELS FOR THE SAME REASONS AS IN UK.  WE MUST HAVE SIGNED FOR INSURED DELIVERY BECAUSE OF THE VALUE (FOR EVERYONE'S SAKE). THANKS!
