Hello! This gorgeous, high quality suit has elegance, comfort and Quality.

The fabric is a thick, textured wool weave. Very dark charcoal, bordering on black, with a subtle maroon stripe.

The jacket has a rounded front with sharp cutaway opening. It has 2-button fastening, 2-button cuffs, 2 side back vents. The breast pocket is lined with fine black fabric (cotton or linen), and the 3 lower flap pockets have backs of black rayon satin, fronts of fabric. The collar is backed with fuzzy wool felt.

There are 2 open lining pockets, one topped with the label.

The pants have a 1 3/8" wide waistband which fastens with 2 slide metal hooks. The nylon zipper is by Aero as are the side metal ratched waist adjusters. There's a front flap pocket with button, 6 1/4" deep. 2 deep hip pockets and a back pocket with button and thin elastic loop.

The inside waist and the pockets are of a nice, durable cream faille material, perhaps a rayon/poly blend.

Condition: appears unworn. The wool is crisp and clean.

Amies was one of the first European designers to venture into the ready-to-wear market when he teamed up with Hepworths in 1959 to design a range of menswear. In 1961, Amies made fashion history by staging the first men's ready-to-wear catwalk shows, at the Savoy Hotel in London. The runway show was a first on many levels as it was both the first time music was played and for the designer to accompany models on the catwalk.
