Vintage 60s British Invasion Suit Mad Men Era Size M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful 60s British Invasion suit made in a quality blue wool worsted fabric. The jacket of this British Invasion suit has high set lapels and a three covered button front. The shoulders of the jacket are padded and the lapels are, as mentioned, quite narrow and high-set - this is a lapel style typical of the 1963-1965 period that was seen used by British rock groups during the British Invasion. There is a flapped pocket at either side, and a pocket at the left chest. There are two covered buttons at either sleeve cuff. The jacket has an 6” centre vent at the back and is half lined with an abstract print fabric. It has two interior pockets. The pants to this British Invasion suit have a flat front (no pleats) and a tapered leg with no turned cuff at the bottom.
