☆ DESCRIPTION ☆

Very rare men's embroidered velvet trousers from iconic 1960s-1970s unisex boutique "Granny Takes A Trip. These trousers date 1970-1971, and were bespoke made for a customer in the New York store. Originally there was a matching jacket but sadly the two pieces parted company many moons ago. I purchased from a vintage store in New York.

These are the classic Granny's embroidered yoke suit pants favourited by many rock stars and groups of the day including Led Zeppelin, The Allman Brothers, The Faces and The Rolling Stones just to name a few. The last photo shows Keith Richards' version of these embroidered yoke Granny's trousers which now reside in a museum (Photo credit: 'Granny Takes A Trip' Facebook group).

They are made from black and green cotton velveteen and feature metal zipper fly and single button fastening. They have no waistband as this design was never made with a waistband. The outstanding feature of course is the front and back embroidered yoke. This butterfly motif was not available off-the-peg which makes them even more desirable. These were a custom order so they may possibly be the only example with this embroidery. They are in beautiful condition and have been well cared for and look to have been worn a minimal amount of times. A beautiful piece of men's '70s rock and pop fashion, a highly collectible piece and one which rarely comes available for sale.

☆ CONDITION ☆

Excellent vintage condition. No missing buttons, no rips or tears, no stains or marks, no bad odours, no excessive wear and the zip runs smoothly with no broken or missing teeth. POINT TO NOTE: The pants have been take out a little at the sides and the back waistband/seam and the "Granny Takes A Trip" label was removed to make the alteration at the back seam. The label stitching is still present and I have a photo example of another pair of Granny's men's suit trousers from exactly the same year which I can provide for comparison so the customer can be assured of their authenticity. Please ask to see photographs before purchasing if you have any concerns. Despatched dry cleaned and ready to wear.
