Vintage 1970s Mens Suit Grey Wool Poly Blend Sz L Unused


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This product is unavailable

This is a vintage 1970s mens suit made of a wool and polyester blended fabric in an attractive tone of grey.  I don’t think that this 1970s mens suit was ever used as a size ticket is still stapled to the interior (see photo) and there is an attached alteration ticket (see photo) - if it was used, it really wasn’t used much.  The jacket to this 1970s mens suit is made with wide notched lapels and a two button closure. The shoulders are padded and there is a flapped pocket built into either side as well as a chest pocket.   The sleeves have three button cuffs.  The back has a 12” long centre vent.  The pants are unpleated (flat front) and have a leg that tapers slightly and then flares to the bottom.  The jacket is fully lined.
