http://www.ebay.com/itm/272109257247

This vintage suit was made in 1960 and was sold by McCracken Bros, the mens store, with locations in Bozeman and Dillon Montana. It is a more sedate version of the style, with proportions more in keeping with western suits of the mid 1950s.  Made from putty colored gabardine, it has saddlebag pockets, peak lapels, a bi-swing back, a square cutaway, three button front and no yokes. The pants have regular style belt loops and buttoned “dog ear” pockets, more typically seen on equestrian breeches.

Shoulder to shoulder: 17-1/2″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 24-3/4″
Length (base of collar to hem): 31″
Waist (side to side):  14-3/4″ (doubled = 29-1/2″)
Outseam: 40″
Inseam: 29-1/4″
Rise: 10-3/4″
