This product is unavailable
This is a vintage Yves Saint Laurent suit made in France during, I believe, the early 1970s, possibly late 60s. This vintage Yves Saint Laurent suit is made with a white pinstripe against a navy blue wool worsted fabric. The jacket is made with wide straight peaked lapels with a two button closure. There is a large flap on either side pocket and there is a chest pocket. The sleeves have four button cuffs. The back has a double vent flap. The jacket is fully lined in a navy blue acetate fabric. The pants have a flat front, wide leg, double button tab waist closure, metal zipper fly and side and back pockets. I think that this vintage Yves Saint Laurent suit would look equally great on a woman as a man.
Material: no label, but definitely a quality wool
