This product is unavailable
This is a wonderful unused 60s mod era men’s suit made in a grey wool fabric with alternating blue, white and black pinstripes - the wool is spun in what I think is a worsted finish (see view the photos). The sleeve still retains its “Pure Virgin Wool” label as well as a cardboard tag printed with “Mens Blade Short 38W32”. The jacket has padded shoulders, high set wide notched lapels, a three button closure and is fitted at the waist. The sleeves have a single button at the cuff. There is a flapped pocket at either side and a pocket at the left chest. The jacket has a single vent at the back that measures 10 1/2”. It is half lined in an eye-popping zig-zag white and black on silver grey lining. The pants have a flat front (no pleats) and a leg that flares to the bottom with no cuff, but hemmed with 1 3/4” of fabric on the interior.
Age: mid 1960s
Label: ACWU Union label that was used between 1962 and 1976, but no maker’s label.
