Looking for a decent reproduction of the typical Victorian/Edwardian men's bathing suit - ideally the blue/white striped shorts and shirt type

Cheers, Rob

I know where there is an original that would fit you rob, but it's plain black (as most were) about £25.

Thanks Kate, ideally though i'm looking for a reproduction owing to what it's planned for :silent:

Oh dear, the mind boggles. If you know a good knitter I have some great patterns!

Hello.

I've only been able to find a couple of ready-made models that are not for hire:

Not period but easily modifiable, I guess.

Regards.
