1940s Allen western suit

http://www.ebay.com/itm/400944277463
This vintage suit was made in the late 1940s in Denver, Colorado by the Allen Mfg. Co. It is made of 100% Virgin Wool gabardine. This style of western suit came into being just after WWII, and was sort of a greatest hits version of details of 1930s suits, with its saddlebag patch pockets, wide peak lapels, bi-swing shoulders and suppressed waist. The square cutaway, popular in the 1910s-1920s, gives the suit a western flair, as do the fancy pockets on the pants and the wide belt loops. The pants are flat front and cuffless.

Chest (pit to pit): 22″ (doubled = 44″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 18″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 24-1/4
Length (base of collar to hem): 29″

Waist (side to side): 18″ (doubled = 36″)
Outseam: 42″
Inseam: 30-1/2″ (3″ in hem, so probably about 2.5″ that could be let out)
Rise: 11.5″

1930s Allen Stockman suit

http://www.ebay.com/itm/400949877547
This vintage suit was made in the 1930s in Denver Colorado by Allen Brand, maker of stockman’s garments. It is made of heavyweight mackinaw wool, with a waist length jacket. The jacket is button front, with a double button waistband and buttoned side adjusters. The pants are flat front, button fly, cuffless, and have western style belt loops. As was typical in this era of workwear and outerwear made from materials like this, the jacket and pants are unlined. The jacket has a honorable discharge “ruptured duck” pin in one lapel and an American Legion pin in the other. When I bought this suit, I was told that it was worn home after WWII by its original owner, and stored unworn since 1946.

Chest (pit to pit): 22″ (doubled = 44″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 18″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 23-1/2″

1940s Capps Clothes double breasted jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271880980299
This vintage suit jacket was made in the early 1940s by Capps Clothes (established 1838) and was sold by Jacoby’s Store for Men, Helena, Montana. Jacoby’s changed their name from Bossler’s in 1941, so with the 1939 union tag, the high cut, pre-bold look of the suit and the information about the original store, I would put this jacket’s original date of manufacture from 1941-1944.

Chest (pit to pit): 21″ (doubled = 42″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 16″
Sleeve (Shoulder to cuff): 24-1/2″
Length (Base of collar to hem): 29-1/2″
