This is a wonderful men’s three piece suit made in a green woven wool fabric.  The jacket has high set medium width notched lapels and does not have a closure - it is meant to wear open at the front so as to display the vest.  The shoulders of the jacket are slightly padded and there is a jetted pocket at either side, and a jetted pocket at the left chest.  The jacket has a double vent at the back and is half lined with a striped copper brown satin fabric.  It has two interior pockets. The vest has a four pocket front and closes with five covered buttons.  Its back matches the satin lining on the jacket.  The pants have a flat front (no pleats) and a tapered leg with no turned cuff at the bottom.  There is a slightly curved pocket at either upper front side and the waist has a sizing adjustment tab on either side.  

Age: mid 1960s

Label: Golden Brand Clothes Quality Tailored 

Material label: “London Loom Lustre Finish Venetian”, probably worsted wool, nice quality with a rich looking appearance.  It is woven in a fine striping, almost like a herringbone but in a different pattern, in a combination of green and ochre yellow threads.

Sizing: No size is indicated, but this should fit a medium size, about a size 40 - please rely on the following measurements for fit, taken from the exterior (please take the thickness of the fabric and the cut of the suit into consideration):

Jacket:

Shoulders: 18” across shoulder seam-to-seam 

Sleeves: 25” from shoulder seam

Sleeve Inseam: 17” long

Chest: 44” around, taken under the arms, with a normal gap at the front

Waist: 43”

Overall length: 29 1/2“, measured flat

Vest:  

Chest:  40”, just - if you have a 40” chest, this will fit snuggly

Length:  22”, measured flat

Pants:

Waist:  34” 

Hips:  42”

Length:  37” - there is 2 3/4” of extra fabric inside the cuff should you require more length

Leg Inseam:  27 1/2”

Condition:  This suit is in very clean condition with no wear, tear, stains or odours - there were a couple of spots on the right inside leg of the pants but they wiped off with water, but you might want to have the pants dry cleaned, although I don’t think that it is necessary.  This suit looks like it saw very little use and was very well kept over the years.  

This is a wonderful suit from the mid 60s when London fashion was in vogue......quality fabric, hard to find 1960s three piece suits like this in such nice condition....
