It is hand painted, almost certainly in California, and was made using Resilient Construction. It looks as though it was intended to have been a knot planned model, as the back blade is a contrasting color, but the tie is constructed in such a way that it does not line up with the knot, regardless of the style of knot used. The tie measures 49″ long and 4-1/4″ wide.

1941 Scotch Woolen Mills peak lapel suit

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271577530184
This vintage suit was made in 1941 by the Scotch Woolen Mills, a Chicago, Illinois based tailoring company. The suit has a typically 1930s cut, with a high degree of waist supression. It is single breasted, with a two button closure and wide, pointy peak lapels. The suit is half-lined (as opposed to the more typical skeleton/petal lining of the era) in a floral jacquard fabric. The pants are zipper fly, with an early Talon zipper. They are straight cut and cuffed. The fabric is a wonderful deep burgundy with red and orange stripes. It’s a nice change from usual brown suits, and is surprisingly easy to coordinate colors with.
