Thirties • The Double Breasted Suit

Late 1930s
Takes 6 seconds then returns

It is the very deep lapels which make this double breasted suit distinctive

The top two buttons on the six button version serve no useful purpose.
The style features horizontal side pockets with flaps and a tie with matching handkerchief tucked in the breast pocket.
A well oiled "Short back and sides" haircut with a side parting seem necessary.
The wide legged trousers have turn-ups and he sports two-tone shoes.
