Vintage NWT 1970s Mens Suit Plaid Wool Unused NOS Sz 46


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a NWT 1970s mens suit that is made of plaid wool in orangey red, black and grey. The jacket to this NWT 1970s mens suit has padded shoulders, wide notched lapels, a two button front, two button cuffs and has a 10” centre vent at the bottom back, still sewn closed at the bottom.  There is a pocket at the chest and a flapped pocket at either side.  It is half lined in copper toned acetate.  The pants to this NWT 1970s mens suit have a flat panel front and a flared leg - the cuffs are unfinished.

Labels: Both pieces of this NWT 1970s mens suit are stapled with a size ticket and the left cuff of the jacket has both a larger size tag and a cloth All Wool content label affixed to it.  The original retailer tag is still present with a price on it that shows price reductions from $229 to $149 to $69, and finally to $29. $229 was substantial money during the 1970s and although they couldn’t sell it at $29, it was probably out-of-style at that point - now, this NWT 1970s mens suit is really cool.
