i'll add that this is probably made by Norman Hilton, who i understand was RLs financial and manufacturing muscle when he first started doing tailored stuff. the o.g. PRL tweeds by Hilton are just about the nicest rustic tailored pieces i've run across but i've not seen any worsted suiting. i assume it's a killer.

To have an authentic Nike game-issue jersey, it would have to be from pre-2000, after the team jerseys are made by CCM, Koho, and shortly after all were made by Reebok.

 

It does have the matching-colored twill rectangle sewn on similar to your pic. I'm assuming this was for the '99-2000 season from the 2000NHL patch. Thanks!

Thanks all.

Fantastic suit. I love the old PRL suits from the 70s/80s, and I have many in my personal wardrobe. If it's a ~40reg and you'd like to part with it, shoot me a PM.

Same here, I've also got a number of pieces including a full tweed windowpane suit from the early 80's. Super solid stuff.

I just picked up a pretty swish piece the other day, raw silk herringbone with huge lapels, a ticket pocket and dual vents. I'll post a pic tomorrow.

Sounds awesome. Can't wait to see it. I only rock wide lapels.

Thanks all. A few pm's to answer. Give me until tomorrow and I will get back to you all. I think we can get it to the right home. Too nice to leave at the goodwill.
