More 20s Skinniness …

This time a suit. But still with the necessity for being tall and skinny for it to work. The jacket has a number of interesting features like the extremely backward sloping shoulder seams, complete lack of any shoulder padding, and the dart that runs from the hip pocket level in front right into the armhole. I haven’t seen such a dart very often. The trousers are quite generic, flat fronted, with not much interesting about them. The wide waistband and super skinny belt loops are nice.

    There is something more interesting than generic about the trousers. The buttonhole for the inner button on the fly runs into the seam of the waistband. Not only is it not common and rather interesting, it’s something different than the usual construction of a French fly tab running to the left side.
