Every man needs a good summer suit or two, and this sharp vintage 1950s suit is an excellent choice. Made by Hart, Schaffner & Marx of "Viracle" an early blend of wool and dacron, that has a nice, flat hand. A quick google search turned up a 1955 ad, boasting that you can "travel light and wrinkle free." A mid 50s style, it has moderate notched lapels, and features three patch pockets. The light tan color is ideal for a summertime look. The jacket has very light shoulder pads and a short back vent.

The high waist pants have slightly dropped loops, double pleats and a watch pocket. They close with a metal zipper, and are crisply cuffed.

Upon close inspection, I found two pin-head spots near the inside elbow of the right sleeve, which should come away with a fresh dryclean. I find no other issues to note! It is ready to wear as it is.
