Description

~ Circa/Date: 1940 WW2

~ Details:  TWO-WAY SIREN SUIT by Weldon’s (I have finally got hold of this gem of a pattern!)

This pattern is one of the most sought after patterns from the WW2 period. Winston Churchill had a Siren Suit, Cut in bottle-green velvet and with a cigar jammed in its breast pocket, his ingenious solution is displayed in the Jermyn Street shop of the company that he commissioned to make it, “Turnbull & Asser”. The 125-year-old T&A shirt maker has this historical treasure on display, Churchill’s invention of a quick-to-slip-on all-in-one. Step into T&A and just gawp at the Siren Suit! Thanks to Churchill that the famous Siren Suit came about.

An original siren suit sold at auction for £29,875.
