This is a beautiful vintage tuxedo. There are no tags, so I assume it was custom made. The weight of the wool (over 12 oz) and the skeleton lining suggest pre-1960s. Most of the outfit was restored by my tailor, so you won't find any holes or rips. Here are the measurements coat: chest: 39" shoulders: 17" length: 29" outer sleeve: 23.5" inner sleeve: 16" satin lapels no vents four buttons on each sleeve pants: waist: 31" (1" of ease) length: 38" (2.5" of ease) inseam: 26" inseam 20" leg opening straight leg flat front suspender buttons braided stripe (as opposed to satin or grossgrain) button fly was converted to zipper fly Now selling on ebay.
