Vintage 60s Mod Era Mens Suit w Blue Pinstripe Size M / L
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful 60s mod era men’s suit made in a navy blue wool fabric with light blue pinstriping - the wool is spun in what I think is a worsted serge finish (see view the photos). The jacket has padded shoulders, wide lapels, a two button closure and is fitted at the waist. The sleeves have two buttons at the cuff. There is a diagonally angled flapped pocket at either side and a pocket at the left chest. The jacket has a single vent at the back that measures 12 3/4”. It is lined in an eye-popping red lining that is printed with an abstract pattern. It has two interior pockets that are lined in a printed grey fabric. The pants have a flat front (no pleats) and a leg that flares to the bottom with no cuff.
