Another Belted Back Suit for the Auction Block

This is a suit I found in London, though it’s American. It has a 1936 Union Label, so dates from 1936-1940 or so. Made by Wickfield and sold from Berger’s Store in Great Falls Montana, this suit is a lovely shade of chocolate brown serge wool, and has red and black overchecks. The double breasted proportions are, in my opinion, perfect. The rear features a half belt with 2 pleats above it on either side of the centre. The front patch hip pockets are also pleated and flapped. A nice touch.
