This vintage suit was made in the 1940s and was sold by Penney’s under their Town Clad label. It’s an off the rack suit, tailored to fit a tall man, with material added to the lining to facilitate the long sleeves and no cuffs to the pants to handle the long inseam.
This vintage suit was made in the late 1950s-early 1960s by Gross of Denver. It is made from iridescent green and gold sharkskin, with a western cut. It has peak lapels and yokes front and back, with the pleats in the rear allowing for greater range of motion in the shoulders. The pants have pearl snaps on the back pockets and fancy western belt loops.
This vintage suit was made by the Batch Tailoring Company of Helena Montana in February of 1950 for an A.J. Murphy. Unfortunately, the pants have gone missing at some point in the past sixty five years, so this is only the jacket and vest.
