1900 dated tuxedo

This is dated 1900. It was out of style by the time the Titanic sank. 112 years old and still kicking.
It’s not in the best condition, but is one of the older pieces I’ve had. All the pieces are marked with tailor tags, but all are on the undersides of linings or insides of pockets- hidden places. I love the cut of the hem of the trousers, a sweeping S shape to accommodate the wearer’s shoes, while maintaining a no-break silhouette.
