This product is unavailable

This is a vintage 1940s / 1950s era suit made of silver toned grey wool that is woven with a stitched white and black oval shaped motif throughout.  The jacket of this suit has padded, squared shoulders typical of the 1940s, high set, round notched collar and lapels, and a five button closure.  It has a longer silhouette with a slightly accented waistline.  The sleeves are made in a to-the-wrist length.  There is a pocket at either side, each with a notched opening.  The skirt has a mid-calf length, flares to the hemline, has pleating at the back, does up with a metal zipper at the side, and is unlined.  Please note that the suit was too large for my mannequin, so pinned back for the photos
