Vintage 1940s Work Day Gabardine Suit

A classic late 1950s / early 1950s suit!   Muted brown gabardine.  The jacket has iconic wide, padded shoulders.  Straight skirt with aside metal zipper.  Both pieces are unlined.  The look great together or worn as separates.



  • Label              Jane Andrea Original
  • Best fits          L (skirt) / XL (jacket) (see measurements)
  • Circa               Late 1940s / early 1950s

Condition      Overall very good.  The suit is in amazing, wearable condition.  There is a tiny thinning spot (not yet a hole) on the back shoulder (see photo).  This suit would benefit from a proper dry cleaning to freshen it up as it still has a faint storage smell.  Priced accordingly.
