Vintage 1940s New Look Plaid Suit

This amazing late 1940s suit has such a chic, contemporary silhouette!  Lightweight wool (blend?) with a classic Glen plaid in browns and blues.  The double breasted jacket has wide, padded shoulders an a nipped waist along with decorative flap pockets.  The swing skirt is a full, A-line with a side metal zipper and a hook-and-eye waist.  The jacket is lined with brown rayon, but the skirt is unlined.  The two pieces work amazingly well as separates also to create different looks.
