Vintage Early 1940s GabaLora Collegiate Suit

This late 1930s or early 1940s suit is a classic!  Lightweight rayon/wool blend (called Gabalora) in a rich shade of brown.  The jacket-top buttons down the front.  It has short, slightly puffed sleeves.  Darts at the waist give the jacket a beautiful shape, which is accented with a thin belt.  Two patch pockets on the front.  The skirt is a pleated A-line that has lots of movement (perfect for Swing dancing!) and closes with a side metal zipper.  Both pieces are unlined.  And, being separates, these pieces can easily be paired with other items to create lots of new looks.

 

DETAILS

Label:  GabaLora

Best fits:  M (see measurements)

Circa:  Late 1930s / early 1940s 

Condition:  Overall very good - excellent.  The suit shows very light, normal wear.  The only issues to note are a tiny pinhole on the back shoulder (extremely difficult to notice unless held to the light) and a tiny repaired pinehole on the lower back of the skirt (see last photo).  Neither of these is distracting and are essentiallyt imperceptible when the suit is worn.
