1940s Blue Serge 3-piece Suit
item MSU00038

Two-button rich blue serge suit has the slightly curvy silhouette that looked so great on Gene Kelly. Pleated cuffed full-cut trousers balance the jacket's broad shoulders. Trouser waist has been let out, as is frequently the case. We don't restore it back to the original size as you'll need tailoring of your own (please see measurements). Former owner was over 6" tall on the day he first wore this suit - his wedding day in 1949. Back underside of cuffs have some wear - detail photo exaggerates the wear, it doesn't go through. One several millimeter damaged area to fibers close to outer trouser seam. Overall in very good condition - we're very possibly the most finicky sticklers for condition in the business. Label: Konner's (custom suit)

Please note that the 30" inseam is coupled with a 43" outseam, and the very long rise will have these riding lower and therefore longer - as noted, the owner was over 6'.
