Thy name be a slim 38. I know thats not your size so not to worry
Good memory, most are, yes.
The spirit of 75 stays alive!
Don't say not Ivy Styled. Arthur Rosenberg was a prominent New Haven Tailor along with J.Prees and later Chipp.
I still have several jackets/suits from the 80s/early 90s from Chipp which are cut more or less the same way.
The key is natural shoulders. welt seams and other details. Some of us have big shoulders and chests and
and narrowish waists and actually look better in this Ivy variant. Unfortunately, these clothes no longer really fit me

The more I look at those, the more '20s/'30s they look. If they're so short you can't imagine anyone but a 7-year-old wearing them, probably '20s.
Here's my largely vintage wedding fit. The morning coat is probably 1930's, and the top hat could really be anywhere from 1890's to 1940's. Cuff links are vintage, inherited from my grandfather; my mom remembers them being his dressiest pair from when she was a kid, so probably 1960's, but maybe earlier.
The dinner suit (jacket and trousers) were found at a local consignment store, virtually unworn. 75% Mohair, 25% wool. Either 90's or 60's; not really sure. The vest was found online. Both needed minimal alterations. The stud/link set is also from a local consignment shop, but they are nothing special - just cheap pot metal, but still nice looking. They are double-faced links, which I was looking rather strenuously for.
And, while I'm at it, this is from our engagement shoot. The tweed is from the 80's, pilfered from my dad's closet, so absolutely free! I originally borrowed it to dress as the 11th doctor for Hallowe'en a couple of years back. As it fits me, and doesn't fit him, I saw fit to keep it.
