Material: wool main body, silk lapels, cotton canvas waistcoat lining and pockets, polished cotton lining

Decade: Mid to late 1910s

Brand/Tags: custom made with no details of tailor.  Label shows the mans name that the set was made for along with his initials sewn

Condition: Good - there are three areas where the polished cotton lining on the tailcoat has torn from the edges and is missing a small amount.  It could be left as is or repaired, one button on the cuff is threadbare, one tiny nibble on pants but not fully through the fabric, some tiny specks of tobacco in tail pockets, one small seam separation on underside of shawl waistcoat collar where the underside meets the main fabric, discoloration to the lining of the waistcoat, there are ghost seams where the waistcoat, waistband, leg inner inseam circumference have been let out , some faint spots that would likely come right out if properly cleaned.  I do not have a dry cleaner or feel I have the expertise to clean this on my own so this will be left up to the buyer.  It has no odors and presents beautifully in person.
