This 1930s vintage tuxedo tails evening suit has a black wool tailcoat with peaked lapels covered in silk faille fabric and pleated, button fly trousers with faille stripes.  The jacket has six faille-covered buttons on the front, two at the back of the waist and three tiny buttons on each sleeve.  The sleeves are cut on a curve for better fit and movement and the shoulder are padded.  The back of the tailcoat has curved seams and tiny pleats to each side of the high back slit at the center of the “tails”.  The jacket is fully lined and has an inner breast pocket and an outer welt breast pocket.  The heavy black wool has a very, very faint herringbone texture to the weave, difficult to see in our photos.  The high-waisted pleated front trousers are uncuffed, with 2.5 inches of hem, inside.  They have a tiny watch pocket below the waist and buttons for suspenders or braces, inside.  The trousers are unlined and have vertical pockets at the side seams and horizontal welted pockets in back.  This gorgeous 30s tuxedo is in excellent condition, with some slight wear to the silk faille stripe at the edge of one side seam trouser pocket as its only issue.  The jacket is labeled as a chest size 38 inside, but please check the measurements for more details about size.
