Here's the second vintage bespoke three-piece I picked up before the holidays. This one was made for the same guy as the grey one from a couple of days ago, but 5 years earlier, in 1960. I think he was slightly heavier then as the trousers have more room in the seat - although this could reflect an the fact that this one is from before things got a bit sharper in the early to mid-60s. In any case, I am going to have the trousers altered. But otherwise, this is also great and the fabric is again wonderful: the first picture is most accurate for colour, but close up IRL it is a rich navy/mid-blue pinpoint. Worn today with a CT Black Label shirt and an Engineered Garments bow tie. Cufflinks (in the close-ups) were made by a jewelry designer in Edinburgh from old watch parts. The braces (suspenders for those from the USA) are also vintage 1960s silk from Countess Mara.
