1950s Rugby men’s bathing suit

Now on eBay! LINK

This vintage men’s bathing suit was made in the 1950s. It feels like some kind of acetate and nylon blend. It has a flapped key pocket and a drawstring waist. The front is lined. The swimsuit was made by Rugby Sportswear and is tagged a size 34. It’s a bit wrinkled, but seems otherwise solid.

Waist unstretched (side to side): 16″ (doubled = 32″)
Waist stretched (side to side): 18″ (doubled = 36″)
Rise: 10″
Side Seam: 6-1/2″
