1948 Suit – Diagonal Weave Tweed

What an amazing fabric. A brown and creamy grey tweed in a diagonal weave. This was (so the seller told me years ago) made for someone’s wedding. There’s no maker’s name in the suit, but the jacket and waistcoat are both marked “Berlou, 4/15/48”. That sounds about right, as the cut of the jacket is pure late 40s bold-look, big shoulders and lots of drape. This would have been a very warm suit for May, though. Three piece in such a heavy tweed: Whew!
