Something of a first for me to offer at The Major's Tailor, and with no plans to do these at any scale, this is a unique offering. Some time back I found a suit missing a leg and made a prototype safari jacket for myself, and when another partial suit came my way, this time missing the waist pockets, I thought I'd make another more refined version. The upper body of the coveralls are a beautifully designed garment, with amazing pleated pockets, shoulder gussets etc, but the nature of a coverall makes them a tricky garment to wear. For this piece, I've removed the zipper and legs, and rebuilt the rear end, tailoring the fabric into a lovely single vented jacket. Using spare fabric from a leg I've created a matching pair of pleated waist pockets, finished with matching antique brass press studs. I've shortened the sleeves to a more appropriate length for this jacket, replacing the double reinforced cuff. Finally I've including a two button closure, using army 13 star buttons, and keyhole button holes. A beautiful garment, guaranteed to turn a few heads.

Condition

The suit is used but in amazing shape, and there is no damage to the fabric. Do note though, that particularly where the waist pockets were removed, there are lines of previous stitching etc.
