    I am told it's 1940's the label is Young Viewpoint of New York I think it a sort of Rayon. Any info on it would be appreciated many thanks Paul.

    Beautiful suit, and it looks very nice on you too - I'm going to go for early fifties, although I'm unfamiliar with the label. Great colour too.

    In agreement with everyone else, and that color is positively smashing! It's one of my favorite colors (if you ever want to sell that suit, I'm all over it!)

    Looks great on, too! Thanks for sharing....

    I hate to be the voice of discord but I am leaning more towards the late 50s. The jacket isn't cut close enough to the body with a multiple button closure - it's too open and unstructured - more late 50s in style, especially with the 3/4 sleeves and hip-line length jacket, I would expect it to be fitted a little longer over the hips for the early 50s.

    I agree with Jonathan. The 3/4 sleeves and the hot pink color say late 50's to me as well. It looks really nice on you!
