The dinner suit (jacket and trousers) were found at a local consignment store, virtually unworn.  75% Mohair, 25% wool.  Either 90's or 60's; not really sure.  The vest was found online.  Both needed minimal alterations.  The stud/link set is also from a local consignment shop, but they are nothing special - just cheap pot metal, but still nice looking.  They are double-faced links, which I was looking rather strenuously for.

 

And, while I'm at it, this is from our engagement shoot.  The tweed is from the 80's, pilfered from my dad's closet, so absolutely free!  I originally borrowed it to dress as the 11th doctor for Hallowe'en a couple of years back.  As it fits me, and doesn't fit him, I saw fit to keep it.

ITG - those outfits are awesome. So well done! Post detail pics of the pieces when you get a chance. I'd love to see more of the topper, morning coat, vest, and dinner jacket.

All the wedding pictures are available at pikegiffordwedding.wordpress.com, but here are a few more of the vintage pieces - I will take some more detailed pictures after we are done moving:

 

Back of the morning coat:

Bit better look at the lapels, and drape of the shoulder:

 

A nice look at the top of the topper.

 

 

Bit better look at DJ lapel:

 

Sleeve buttons:

 

DJ from the back (that's me in the hat)

 

And I suppose my Leafs sweater is vintage - got it in 1995.

 Now that's true love!

Is it super soft or a bit coarse? I have something like that - it has a nap and it's a bit coarse (though not super needle-like) and it's made from mohair and wool.

Does anyone have any information about a popular, American Made, 60s-70s clothing designer called Antonio Guiseppe? I own several articles of clothing designed by him/them, including the suit pictured, and I am hoping to find out some background history on the suit and the company who created it. I've been Googling for days with no luck. Any information you can provide is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Thanks. Its quite soft, but not super soft if that makes sense. I did think maybe mohair but wasn't sure....??

Without being able to touch it, I vote Mohair. But regardless, it's an amazing looking coat!

Beautiful outfits!  Please consider sharing a few photos in the Thrift Thread Fits: Formal Wear thread -- the goal is to create a compendium of formal fits with significant items coming from thrift stores, discount, consignment, etc.  I think yours would be a stellar entry to give Orgetorix's some company!

Thanks guys, I have added it to the website with a suggestion of it being possibly mohair / wool.
Whatever it is it will make someone a great winter coat smile.gif
