       Up for auction is this incredible late 1930's / early 1940's vintage chalk stripe flannel suit.

  • three button front enclosure that rolls to two
  • two unflapped waist pockets
  • one left chest pocket
  • double darted front
  • ventless rear
  • partial satin lining
  • trousers are flat front with a high rise, button fly, straight cut and cuffed hem

Almost too good to be true! This gorgeous two piece suit has a striking two-tone chalk stripe on heavy weight, muted navy wool. The fabric is a soft flannel - a very tight tolex weave with a beautiful blue and white stripe. Terminally 30's with a pronounced rolled lapel, heavily structured shoulders, wasp waist and a ventless back.

Very rare and certifiably trend-proof - an absolutely perfect depression era flavor. Get this one before the costume design department at Boardwalk Empire snaps it up!
