I am afraid this may be the endless series! Poking about the internet, looking at 1940s suits . I have no occasion to wear them, they don't hold up well to kneeling on the floor fitting dancers, doing yardwork, taking photos. But I do love fine tailoring. I want to wear one of these and look like Rosalind Russell. Alas, that option is no longer available.
And then I found this one at Damn Good Vintage. Oh, Oh, oh. Look at that. That is just the best front. And it's an Irene.
