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.
