Hardwick bathing suit

now on eBay! LINK
This vintage bathing suit was made in the 1930s by Hardwick. It is horizontally ribbed wool, with piped racing stripes down the side seams. It has a wide white belt, with a solid brass silvertone chevron buckle. The key / change pocket is located in the belt as opposed to the suit itself. It is partially lined and has a zipper for the original removable tank top. Other than a bit of oxidation on the buckle, these trunks are in great shape.

Waist stretched (side to side): 16″ (doubled = 32″)
