Wool plaid suit, c.1900

Tailored suits are perfect for the lover of vintage clothing who wants a garment sturdy enough to wear. This one features the crisp tailoring that was popular in the 1940s.

The suit is fashioned from red and olive green wool plaid. I love the self-covered buttons, bound buttonholes, and slash pockets. The jacket is lined with olive green silk crepe; the skirt is unlined. The pleated skirt closes on the side with buttons. The label has been removed.

The condition is very good and wearable. The suit has a few tiny moth nibbles (pin prick size)—this is reflected in the low price. You can wear the suit "as is" or have the holes re-woven by a tailor. You will probably want to have the suit cleaned because it has been in storage for a long time.

The jacket measures: 36" bust, 30" waist, 36" hip, 22 1/2" sleeve length, 15" from sleeve cap to sleeve cap, and 23" length.
The skirt measures: 27" waist, 36" hip, and 27" length.
