This suit is grand! So grand it makes want to use profanity to describe it, but I shan't. First of all, it is brown velvet, some of the softest velvet I have ever had my mitts on. That probably has to do with the fact that it is NOS and must have been hiding somewhere very safe all these years. What else makes it so great? Sweet gold buttons, excellent construction, super rich and warm coloring, including an olive green lining with yellow trim. Here are the basics. Jacket features two button closure, four buttons on the sleeves, flapped pockets, a nice wide notched lapel, a double vented back, and a fore mentioned full lining with trim. The vest features five button closure with two welt pockets, and a non adjustable back made of the same olive green material that lines the jacket. The pants feature a flat front, one buttoned and one unbuttoned slit pocket on the backside, and a straight leg. The pants are unfinished and rolled in a good 14" in the photos, which is why they do not looked like they are falling very nicely. There is enough material here for a 7 footer! The condition of the suit is excellent. It is NOS with (some) tags, but it is not 100% flawless. It is damn near close though. The tag on the pants says "irregular" although I could not find any major flaw - perhaps it was because of sizing. The size of this suit is a bit curious. It is labeled a 44L, but I was not swimming in it, and I am a 38R. I would say this is more of a 40-42 R or L. You will have to go by the actual measurements with this one.
