These are a nice large size, too and from Martin’s , a wonderful local menswear store from 1929 – 1997, now sadly defunct. These were originally $7.95 – and Martin’s was Not a cheap store.

1980s Does 1940s Vintage Men’s Pinstripe Suit SZ 44R 

I so rarely do this “one decade does another” routine, but I think it applies to this suit. If you need a larger size suit with a decent inseam length and you just need the 40s look, not the actual 40s, this could be the solution for you. It’s a good quality suit by Oxxford in Super 120s wool. The hand is wonderful. It is a red on grey pinstripe with 2 over 4 button front with back side vents. The pleated pants with cuffs have a California style cut waist in the back. There are extra interior pockets on the left. The tie and shirt are not included.

Labels: Oxxford Clothes Bullock and Jones San Francisco, Super 120s

Size: Labeled a 44R. Coat: Chest: 48”, Shoulders: 20”, Sleeves: 26”, CB Neck to Hem: 31.5”, Pants: Waist: 38” + 2”, Outseam:42”, Inseam: 32” + 1.5” cuff and 1” hem

Condition: Excellent but for a small break at the fold of the coat hem as shown.

1950s Grey Flecked Weave 2 Piece Vintage Suit SZ 42R

A sharp suit in a good size. Love the 3 button jacket with back vent and flap pockets. Pleated pants with cuffs and inseam watch pocket? Of course. Belt loops and a metal zipper fly- certainly. It’s the fabric that appeals the most, though. A black and white weave that reads grey with red, white and black flecks. T.C. Craft and Sons was a clothing store in Aliceville Ala., for at least 25 years, but I can’t find a start date. Thomas Craft, Sr. died in 1953, so it was founded before that.
