This product is unavailable

This is a vintage 1970s mens suit made in a tan brown pure wool.  The jacket to this 1970s mens suit is made with padded shoulders, medium width notched lapels and has a two button closure. There is a large patch pocket built onto either side, as well as at the chest.  The lapels, shoulders and pockets have decorative stitching.  The sleeves have four button cuffs.  The pants have a flat front, a pocket at either side of the front and two patch pockets at the back, each with decorative stitching.  The pants have a wide flared leg.  The jacket is half lined in a tan coloured acetate fabric.  

Label: Confezione Tescosa Made in Italy.  I haven’t found much out about this label other than it is an Italian brand that existed at least from the 1950s and into the 1970s and was owned by the Fila Group.  I’ve had other Tescosa garments from the 70s and they were all of high quality.

Content label: Pure Wool Piumaneve

Sizing: Size 41 is indicated with a pant waist of 35” but the measurement would seem to indicate a US size 38.  Although this 1970s mens suit should fit a medium size, please rely on the following measurements for fit, taken from the exterior:


Shoulders: 17” across shoulder seam-to-seam 

Sleeves: 26” from shoulder seam

Sleeve Inseam: 18 1/2” long

Chest: 42” around, taken under the arms - in my experience, true size is usually 4” smaller than the chest measurement, so, as mentioned, this 1970s mens suit is probably a size 38

Waist: 38” around

Overall length: 31 1/2”, measured flat


Waist: 35” around

Leg Inseam: 33” long

Overall length: 44“ long - there is an extra 3” of material inside of the cuff hem

Note that the cuff measures 23” around

Condition:  This 1970s mens suit is in very good condition with no wear, tear, stains or odours - this 1970s mens suit looks like it saw little use and was very well kept over the years.  

This is a wonderful 1970s mens suit in an attractive tan brown colour!
