*****THE DETAILS*****

*an early CHAPS suit from Ralph Lauren - Chaps was started in 1978 and this suit has the ACWA union label that they quit making somewhere around 1976. Shops continued to use up their on-hand supply of the labels which explains the date interval so I am confident this is an early suit from the Chaps label.
*grey windowpane plaid with orange/red accent
*fall/winter weight - no material labels but believe this is wool
*jacket is partially lined - 2 button front - center vent back
*6 button lined vest with silky feel back
*versatile suit - lots of shirt/tie combos to change your look
*flat front pants (no pleats) - unlined - straight wide(ish) leg
*pants are clean inside
*excellent condition - no condition issues noted
*dry clean only - suit has been dry cleaned (4-18-2012) and comes to you ready to wear

Measurements are approximate and are taken with garment buttoned/zipped, lying flat and doubled where appropriate. Please measure a similar well-fitting garment of your own for comparison. When thinking about measurements, remember that you need to fit comfortably INSIDE the garment. If you are the exact measurements of the garment, you risk damage to the garment and it will not be a good fit for you.

I do my best to describe and photograph colors but please remember that cameras, flash, and monitors can affect viewing.
