1940s British Herringbone Tweed 3-piece suit. Ernster & Sons, London

I love the glorious fabric of this 3-piece suit. Made in the 1940s (going by the style and features – does the faded label read June 1947??), I just wish it fit me! It’s far too long for me, sadly. It’s made of an amazing blue-green “almost Lovat” coloured herringbone tweed. Tailored by A. Ernster & Sons of Ulster Chambers and Regent Steet, London, with working cuffs and fully lined in fantastic viscose or silk twill with classic striped sleeve liners, this is a special piece. I’ll be listing this on eBay tonight.
