    I'd guess mid '30s to early '40s, based on the cut and style. The silk covered buttons deadAngle mentions are a holdover from an earlier style, and while they were still used occasionally in the '30s, plain buttons like yours were more common.

    Very cool, I didn't know if the lack of tags and labels meant it was just made by a regular person and not a company, or very old stuff wasn't tagged.

    I can't imagine it is supposed to have a link, that would look silly with the other two rows of buttons at different distances.

    Here's my vintage formal wear find. Union tag indicates post 1964, but judging by the styling, I'd say not much past that year. What do you guys think? Trousers are super high rise with side tabs and a single pleat, with a very short waistcoat, jacket has a shawl collar with link closure, un-vented and flap pockets.

    I agree with your dating, Eazy. Nice pickup.

    Thanks, it fits me nearly perfectly off the rack too! I was thinking about having the legs slimmed down just a touch, but I'm not too sure if I want to mess with the proportions.

    ^ Very cool, the epitome of "swanky!" Is it midnight blue or is the color temp just off? As a lover of slim trousers, I'd say to leave the leg and embrace the drape that it was cut with, unless it's excessive.

    Also, I feel the need to use the word intense again. Intense.

    You might also consider having the blown out ribbing replaced. I did so with an old Schott I found. Sent it back to Schott directly to have it remade. Link to details here here

    It's black. After I'm recovered from my knee surgery and can actually put trousers on, I'll post a fit pick for some feedback. :fonz:
