This vintage suit was made in the late 1950s-early 1960s. It is an unusual style, popular for an extremely brief period around 1960, usually seen in sportcoat form. The suit is double breasted, with narrow notch lapels and a sharp cutaway. It has a button on belted back, with four buttons, horizontally oriented cuff buttons, tab adjusters on the waistband of the suit and pegged trousers. This one is NOS with the original tags still on it, and unhemmed legs.
This vintage suit was made in the 1960s, sometime around 1962-1965 by Vaughn At Sather-Gate, who had locations in Seattle, San Jose and Berkeley. The suit is made from gray herringbone tweed wool, in a classic 1960s preppy sack coat cut. It has a four pocket, six button vest.
This vintage suit was made in the 1970s and was sold by Grassfield’s of Denver, Colorado. Made from an incredibly heavy herringbone tweed with a subtle rust colored stripe, it has a two button front and fully lined pants. The jacket is half-lined. Very professorial, and obviously very expensive and high quality when new.
This vintage suit was made in the late 1960s-early 1970s by Hart Schaffner & Marx during a brief revival of 1930s belt-back styles. While many from this period have scalloped pocket flaps and other 1970s detailing, this one plays it very close to the originals. It is made of brown wool tweed with a rust colored overcheck. It has patch pockets, and a belted, pleated back. The jacket is half-lined.
