This is a wonderful vintage 1970s blue tuxedo, dated Oct 76 on the tailor’s label.  The jacket to this 1970s blue tuxedo is made in a blended wool fabric with padded shoulders, wide blue satin notched lapels, cloth collar, flapped side pockets, chest pocket, single button closure and with three buttons at either cuff.  It is lined in blue acetate.  There is a satin stripe down either leg of the pants.  The pants have a flat panel front, satin waistband, nylon zipper fly, and a pocket built into either side.  The leg flares at the cuff.
