Condition: This suit is in very good condition with no pronounced wear, tear, stains or odors - one of the pair of pants has a bit of soiling, but the other pair is very clean. I guess that he used one pair and not the other, but all that the used pair needs is a dry cleaning. Otherwise, it looks like this suit saw little use and was very well kept over the years.
This suit features wonderful late 50s style, very sharp - nice to have the date on the tailor’s label….
