Single-breasted, charcoal-brown sharkskin suit.
Made by Sol Stolowy, Kansas City Custom Garment Company.
Sol Stolowy made suits for Harry Truman for over 20 years. He worked for the Kansas City Custom Garment Co. as foreman and eventually purchased the company in 1952. He was born in Poland and came to United States in the 1920s.
Stolowy once told Truman, "You know, Mr. President, that I came from Poland where never could a Jewish boy make clothes for a president -- only in America." Truman replied, "In America, everything is possible. I was a farm boy and became president of the United States."
