1940s Jacket & Waistcoat Set

How I wish this set still had the trousers! It would have made a wonderful suit. As it is, it’s just the DB jacket and waistcoat, but in the most fantastic chocolate brown birdseye-ish fabric. It probably dates to the latter half of the 1940s, judging by the exaggerated shoulders, and is archetypal classic British tailoring.
