Department Store Whitaker & Company American

Not on view

This suit features the up-to-the-minute style and color for a well-dressed gentleman in 1940; the wide lapels with exaggerated peaks are particularly noteworthy. Made by a very exclusive men’s tailor; the subtle piping effect at the edges of the lapels and collar is achieved with delicate overstitching and is particularly refined.
