Here's the perfect suit for year-round use in the country courtesy of Hebden Cord of Hebden Bridge. The suit was hand tailored in West Yorkshire; naturally it's of outstanding quality. The suit is tailored from wool-synthetic blend Derby Tweed in a traditional green-grey cast (the cloth's actual colour is best captured in the close-up photos, photo 5 in particular).The suit is hard-wearing, mothproof, warm, breathable, and comfortable to wear. Features of the jacket include: best quality buttons; three pockets on the outside; three inside pockets - a wallet / document pocket, a ticket pocket and a massive game pocket with strap fastening; a tough cotton drill lining in the torso; viscose linings in the sleeves; twin rear vents. The waistcoat features four front pockets, best quality buttons, a cotton twill back with adjuster strap, and a viscose lining. Features of the trousers include: a single pleated front; two front pockets; a buttoned pocket at the back; belt loops; a shirt gripper on the inside waist band; fast-drying nylon linings. Flaws shown in photo 12. Note also that the suit has been on a hanger for a few years, and the collar of the jacket tends to ride up slightly at the back - this should settle down as the suit is worn and the collar moulds itself to the shape of your neck. Most importantly the suit is totally free of moth damage, scent or odour. Don't be fooled by the light creasing apparent in the pictures - this will naturally fall out with use.
In terms of sizing the suit is unlabelled, but fits as a 36 Extra Small , which should be suitable for someone around 5' 6" tall with a 36" chest and a 28 waist. Note a the waist is a generous 28 inches - the actual measurement is nearer to 29, but you'll probably want a little extra room for freedom of movement along with a tucked in flannel shirt; and b the jacket is very generously sized in comparison to the waistcoat - but it's intended to be worn fully buttoned up with plenty of room to accommodate the contents of the large internal game pocket. It may be possible to alter the jacket's fit by re-sewing the buttons away from the leading edge. There's 1 3/4 of extra material inside the jacket cuffs and the hems of the trousers, so it should be possible to lengthen the sleeves and legs by up to an inch. The jacket: armpit to armpit 20 1/2"; armpit to cuff 14 1/2"; shoulder seam to cuff 23"; shoulder seam to shoulder seam measured direct 18 1/2"; shoulder seam to shoulder seam measured with the curve of the shoulder 19"; across the waist 21"; length, base of collar to hem 26 1/2.
The waistcoat: armpit to armpit 18 1/2"; length down the front 23 1/2"; across the waist 17"; length down the back 21 1/2". The trousers: overall length 38 1/2"; length, inside leg 27 3/4"; width across seat at widest point 22"; width across thigh at widest point 12"; width of hem 9"; waist generous 28 inches (actual measurement is closer to 29").
