When in doubt, wear a Handmacher suit!

I’m a huge fan of vintage skirt suits, and if you are curious about the reasons, read my article about the 1940s-1950s suits.  I don’t look for any particular brands when searching for a new addition to my growing suit collection. With the exception of the Taylored by Handmacher suits! You can see in the picture below, an example of one of my lovely 1950s Handmacher suits. The exact same one, at least style-wise, was featured in Harper’s Bazaar from 1952.
