Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is an exceptional men’s suit made in a silver gray pure silk fabric made by the renowned Paris fashion house of Balenciaga. The jacket has peaked lapels and a double breasted button front. The shoulders of the jacket are slightly padded and the sleeves have a two button cuff. There is a jetted pocket at either side, and a pocket at the left breast. The jacket has a double vent at the back and is fully lined in gray viscose. It has three interior pockets. The pants have a pleated front and legs with cuff at the bottom. The suit dates to the 1980s.
Material: Label reads “Seta Pura” - obviously, an Italian silk fabric
Sizing: European size 52 is indicated, which should be equivalent to a US size 42, but please rely on the following measurements for fit, taken from the exterior (please take the thickness of the fabric and the cut of the garment into consideration):
Shoulders: 18 1/2” across shoulder seam-to-seam
Sleeves: 24 3/4” from shoulder seam
Sleeve Inseam: 16” long
Chest: 44” around, taken under the arms
Overall length: 32"
Waist: 37 1/2”
Leg Inseam: 27”
Condition: This suit is in great condition with no wear, tear, stains or odors - the only alteration noted is at the back of the pants, which appear to have been let out by 1”, but this could be easily put back if desired. Otherwise, this suit saw very little use and was very well kept over the years.
This is a super quality suit from a highly respected Paris fashion house......rare to find designer silk suits, this one is especially sharp looking!
