1950s Tweed Jacket
Who's Your Tailor?
Things get interesting when you reach back deep into the closet, past the bell-bottoms, to the 1930s, ’40s, ’50s.
Style sharpens, materials improve. The workmanship can take your breath away.
I found this suit while poking around there.
It’s too good to leave on the hanger. Wonderfully articulate… Collarless lines, trim shoulders, subtle curves everywhere. Those kick pleats.
All of that, plus the lithe lines, make it, well, not pert, exactly; grown-up sexy is more like it.
1950s Tweed Jacket (No. 6787). A patrician thing in substantial Lurex tweed. Chic collarless jacket features a frayed edge at neck and pockets. (For all its tailored look, you won’t need a fashion-model figure; the miracle of princess seams makes it easy to wear). Cotton/poly blend. Flat gold metal shank buttons. Poly crepe de chine lining. Pocket flaps. Imported.
