There is a pocket built into either side. The jacket is fully lined but the pants are not.

Age: 1980s

Label: Tyvek label stating Union Made in Canada with the Canadian textile identification number of CA 17119, which belongs to Morwill Clothing Mfg. Co. Ltd.., a Montreal based clothing company.

Material: 95% viscose / 5% silk

Sizing: Size 38 regular is indicated on the jacket, and although this should fit a medium size, please rely on the following measurements for fit (compare measurement with a similar garment that you presently own or to your own body measurements, taking the cut of the garment into account):


Shoulders: 20” across, from shoulder/sleeve seam to shoulder/sleeve seam

Sleeves: 24” long from the shoulder/sleeve seam

Sleeve inseam: 16” long

Chest: 45” around, taken under the arm opening, meant to be loose/wide

Waist: 41” around

Overall length: 25 1/2”, measured flat


Waist: 32” around

Length: 40”, measured flat

Leg inseam: 28 1/2”, measured flat

Condition: It is in very good condition with no stains, odors, pronounced wear or tears - there is some discolouration to the lining at the shoulders and pockets where the light blue colour has gone purplish (see photo of pocket). Otherwise, this suit looks to have seen moderate use and was well cared for over the years.

This is a great looking new wave era suit - great suit if you’re into 80s bands!
