Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a 1960s vintage Ski Doo suit consisting of three pieces - a jacket with matching pants and hood hat.  This vintage Ski Doo suit was an official Ski Doo outfit and has a Ski Doo label that reads “Ski Doo Fashions By Ski-Doo Sports Ltd Made in Canada Trade Marks of Bombardier Ltd”.  This vintage Ski Doo suit is made in purple with red and white detailing. The jacket does up the front diagonally with a zipper and snaps at the neckline.  All three pieces are lined in a red felted wool. There are loops on the jacket for a belt, but no belt is present.

Material: Nylon 

Sizing: No size is indicated on this vintage Ski Doo suit as the label is missing, and although this should fit a medium size, please note the following measurements for fit, taking the style of the suit into account:

Jacket:

Shoulders:  19” across shoulder/sleeve seams

Sleeves:  22” long from the shoulder seam

Sleeve inseam:  16”

Bust: 47”-48” around, taken under the arms

Bottom:  46” around

Length:  26 1/2”

Pants:

Waist:  32”, adjustable with the velcro tabs

Hips:  44”

Length:  39”

Leg inseam:  27 1/2”

Condition:  This vintage Ski Doo suit t is in very good condition with no wear, tear, or odour.  There is a bit of yellow staining to the upper part of one of the white stripes (see last close-up photo).  Also, there is a bit of blackish marking the upper back of the pants (see second-to-last close-up photo) - looks worse in the photo than in actuality and I haven’t tried to remove this.  Otherwise, this vintage Ski Doo suit looks like it saw little use and was very well cared for over the years. 

This is a fabulous piece of Canadian history - the Ski Doo was voted one of the most innovative Canadian inventions and launched a great sports vehicle and aircraft manufacturer.  What can be more Canadian than winter sports wear, especially a vintage Ski Doo suit?
