Vintage Mens 1890s Linen 3 Piece Suit Button Fly Pants Vest And Coat Very Good:
This was an exciting find at an estate - It is a 3 piece mens suit made of linen and I believe from around 1890 - the hook for the large hook n eye on the pants says patented 1894.
The jacket measures
16" across shoulders
36" around under arms
It has one breast pocket and 2 patch pockets - it should have 3 buttons in the front but one is missing and the other two do not match.
the vest is 19" long - has 4 pockets in the front and on the inside along the bottom seam are 2 inside pockets that are slightly larger- the back is made is made of a heavier cotton I believe that has a slight sheen to it - there is buckle with 2 "teeth" in the back - there is a small rip along the seam in the back that is about 1" long
the pants measure
34" waist and 31" inseam - they close up the front with 4 buttons a very large hook n eye and another button on the inside. They have a pocket on each side and 2 pockets in the back . It has a matching buckle also in the back There are also buttons on the inside for hooking suspenders to .
This entire outfit is in such nice condition considering it is over 100 years old. You would be hard pressed to find another like it!!!
Remember that this is vintage and there for cannot be perfect etc - the fabric is old. Many items I do launder but not all it depends on how bad they are and my time. I make every attempt to disclose any and all imperfections but I am human and can occasionally miss something . Many items I find have been hidden away in attics or back of closets for years and years - I am just glad I can rescue them and be able to offer them to you.!!
