1940s Vintage Gadabout Linen Patch Pocket Suit
The 'Gadabout' is our very own cream linen single-breasted suit, with classic forties tropical style. A popular choice for vintage nostalgia events and festivals amongst our customers.
The jacket has three patch pockets, while the trousers have an authentic high waist fit and fishtail back detail.
As always with our Socialite range, we have replicated an original vintage item - in this case, a 1940s tropical jacket and pair of trousers.
Key authentic features include:
- Three-button fastening.
- Neat collar with rounded notch lapels. Buttonhole decor.
- No back vents.
- Working cuffs with four buttons.
- Fully lined in complimentary sateen fabric. Three internal pockets.
- Vertical side seam pockets.
- Button fly with French bearer.
- Turn up hem cuffs.
- Back pocket with button-down flap.
- Buttons for attaching trouser braces or suspenders.
- Double pleat fronts.
- Fishtail notchback feature.
Fabric content is all-natural: 80% linen and 20% cotton.
Jackets and trousers can also be purchased individually. We've also added a matching waistcoat to our Gadabout lineup - not included in this sale. See separate listings.
Please note: our 2023 run of the Gadabout items (including the new matching waistcoat) is very slightly different in shade to our previous 2022 run - worth bearing in mind if you already own a piece or pieces from the Gadabout line. The colour is still a beautiful cream linen and the difference is difficult to spot.
Please consult the size chart for measurements.
SIZING NOTE: The Gadabout trousers are high-waisted and so the cut of them may mean a tighter fit. If you are between sizes, we recommend ordering the next size up, or for better accuracy measure yourself just below the belly button. Measurements on our size chart are accurate to approximately a quarter inch.
Our first model, Simon (newsboy cap), is 6ft 1 and wears a 40" jacket and a pair of 32" trousers. Tom (straw boater) is 5ft 9 and wears a 38" jacket and a pair of 30" trousers.
