    Another early '50s double breasted, also currently for sale. By 'Bond'. I love the subtle color and pattern of this suit. Seems like it was either barely or never worn, fabric is still 'crisp'. Love it.

    I consider this a 'holy grail' suit. I believe it was a wedding suit, I found dried rice in the trouser cuffs.

    this poor thread doesn't get enough love. Just bought a late 50s-early 60s suit (that fits me, which is really rare!). Pics to be posted later.

    Lucky you! That's a perfect timeless suit that you will be able to wear in every era without looking costumey!
    I've been looking for a good flannel suit for years but no luck so far!

    It will be an awesome suit with alterations, for sure. This suit clings on to the bygone years from the Bold Look era. Tapering the pants will have to be a MUST, and "tapering" the sleeves wouldn't hurt. But for the price I paid, it will be all worth it. I bid you good luck on a great vintage flannel suit, I suddenly understand the hype. Fabric is amazing!

    Campus Clad suit. The color does not photograph well, but it is a dark teal, very neat! This is a very high milage suit, so to speak, pockets ripped out, the seat of the pants has a shine, but it has some life left. Picked it up for a song too! rsz_120190104_152822.jpg rsz_20190104_152910.jpg

    a late 1950's or early 1960s Hickey Freeman Suit in what feels like maybe a Mohair blend. A bit long for me but quite nice nonetheless. 20200105_111813-01.jpeg 20200105_112011-01.jpeg
