This is a classic British suit.
Made in the 1940's and labelled Jolly & Son Limited Bath, it is made from medium weight pure wool in a check design of dark green, rust and black.
It fastens with three large buttons, has front pockets with neat pocket flaps, a smart collar and a slim fitting skirt.
A simple, yet stylish, piece the skirt fastens with a metal zip and hooks and eyes. The jacket is fully lined with satin, the skirt is, as was common at the time of manufacture, unlined.
To ensure this piece will fit you properly, we recommend that you compare the following measurements to a similar suit you already own.

Very good with a couple of minor points to note;
- a few minor scuffs and marks on the lining - nothing major and not seen when worn
- some light lining discolouration
