Washington Suit

I am a jazz musician and a devotee of the 1930's -- both music and clothes. I have engaged master pattern makers and local made-to-measure tailors in an ongoing attempt to capture the authentic look of a suit from the era -- with moderate success. But with Indy's Washington suit, I have gotten the real thing. When I tried the suit on, my wife spent a lot of time staring critically without making any comments, which I thought meant there were problems. Finally, she said, "Your other suits look like they were made by someone trying to copy the 1930's, but this looks like you just stepped out of a 1930's movie!" Also, the suit fits exceptionally well -- despite my doubts about how that could be done by emailed measurements. And the quality is very good --working sleeve buttons, floating canvas construction (as an extra), flawless fit of the peaked lapels, etc. Finally, as others have noted, Indy was extremely patient with my many questions and many detailed directions -- even double checking on my extremely wide trouser thigh measurement (26" to capture the cut of 1930's pants). Now, on to the other suits, Fairbanks, Cagney, Chinatown -- I'll be back!
