The pants have a flat front (no pleats), a semi-circular pocket at either side and a slightly tapered leg with no turned cuff at the bottom.
Age: mid 1960s
Label: Fashion Tones Hand Tailored
Material: Probably worsted wool, nice quality with a lustrous looking appearance
Sizing: No size is indicated, but this should fit a medium size, about a size 38 - please rely on the following measurements for fit, taken from the exterior (please take the thickness of the fabric and the cut of the suit into consideration):
Shoulders: 17” across shoulder seam-to-seam
Sleeves: 24 1/2” from shoulder seam
Sleeve Inseam: 16” long
Chest: 41” around, taken under the arms
Overall length: 28“
Waist: 31” - there is about 4 1/2” of extra fabric, so you probably could let this out to about 34”
Length: 36 1/2”
Leg Inseam: 27” - there is a 2 1/2” cuff should you require a little more length
Condition: This suit is in very clean condition with no wear, tear, stains or odours except for a loose seam just above the back seam, just needs a few stitches (see last close-up photo) - otherwise, this suit looks like this suit saw little use and was very well kept over the years.
This suit features very hip, British Invasion 60s era styling - great suit if it fits!
