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″
