Spectacular.  Thanks JackFlash.  If only Brooks still made clothes of this caliber . . . 

 

Reminds me of a post from Ivy Style, written by Zachary DeLuca, on a Brooks Brothers suit from the 1950s with a spalla camicia (!) and handmade buttonholes: http://www.ivy-style.com/a-tale-of-two-suitings-brooks-in-the-50s-60s.html   This is not Kiton or Rubinacci but Brooks:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Natural shoulder

 

Back of shoulder and arm pitch 

 

More natural shoulder pr0n

 

Felt is strong and unworn 

 

 

1/4 lined, with lining on the sides 

 

Note the lining at the bottom near the vent - must be to prevent wear when sitting?

 

 

 

Back vent - notice the horizontal reinforcement stitching 

 

Split waistband

 

Best for last - so we've all seen pants with slant pockets, normally offset from the seam that travels vertically up the pant - look how the seam actually follows the slant of the pocket!

Jackets were so long then. I much prefer the shorter ones of today. On one episode of Mad Men I noticed the oldest man wearing the longest jacket with Roger Sterling wearing a shorter one and Don Draper wearing the shortest of the three.

Not really, this one is greenish yellow and boucle. The two piece is orangish light brown and herringbone alas did not fit. Search for tweed vest continues.

I think the Vintage Thread is the most appropriate thread to post this on. The following link and description came through on a mailing list I subscribe to.

http://www.mfa.org/exhibitions/hippie-chic

What did it ever mean to be a hippie and how can we accurately describe this slice of American culture and attitude more than four decades after the term was first used? The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston took on the fashions and trends of "hippie chic" with their in situ exhibit. This website is offered as a complement to that exhibit and includes interviews with curators, an exhibition preview, and a video that takes interested parties behind the scenes. In the Slideshow area, visitors can look at nine different designs from the era, including an amazing woman's jacket from 1970 that is truly celestial. Moving on to the Explore area, visitors can try the hippie chic remix and star on their own psychedelic album cover. The site also features a Spotify mix to get people thinking about the period, complete with songs like "Maggie May," "Sugar Magnolia," and "Wild World."
