1930s Style Mart Granite Cloth suit

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281428152764
This vintage suit was made in the late 1930s-early 1940s by Style Mart Clothes for the Edward C. Pease Co. of The Dalles, Oregon. It is made of granite cloth, in that distinctive blue/green shade, with subtle rust red and blue stripes. The jacket is single breasted, with a nicely suppressed waist and notch lapels. It is unvented. The suit comes with two pairs of pants, both identical. They are flat front, cuffed, with an early Talon zipper fly and a 1-1/2″ waistband. The cuffs have been let down at some point, but not pressed.
