1950s Palm Beach dinner jacket

http://www.ebay.com/itm/281130432617
This vintage dinner jacket was made in the mid 1950s by Palm Beach. The jacket bears a variant of the label used 1949-1956 by Palm Beach after they added the location of their mill (Sanford) to the name of their company (Goodall Worsted) to form Goodall Sanford, Inc. Goodall Sanford closed their mills in 1955/1956, so the jacket can not date from any later than that. The dinner jacket features one button styling and a shawl collar. It has a 1949 union tag.

Chest (pit to pit): 21″
Shoulder to Shoulder: 17″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 24″
