I can’t resist posting a tuxedo on here, even though most of you will probably never be seen in a tuxedo at a dance; however, in the off-chance you are feeling dapper and festive, here’s a lovely tuxedo that popped up on eBay from 1932. It looks pristine. The tag on this tux reads “Kennedy’s” and is dated October 10, 1932. I wonder who was buying a tuxedo in the middle of the Great Depression…
Check the measurements for sizing, but the seller is posting this is approximately a 33 inch waist on the pant and a 36 jacket. Note that the seller will not re-list the item if not sold. With two days left on the auction, no bidders, and a $49.99 start price, this could be a fantastic deal!
One thought on “1932 Tuxedo”
That is a very handsome tuxedo. I’d probably bid on it if it were my size (though I do have a couple tuxedos aleady…)
What I find odd is that it’s a drop 3 (meaning a a 3in difference between jacket and waist). Most suits/tuxedos these days are offered at a drop 6.
wait, it’s a 3-piece? oh man… now I really wish that it was my size.
Nice find, LS.
