Not so sure that is 70s. I have a PRL by Corneliani suit in a fabric that looks just like that, and it wouldn't be more than a few years old.
I based my estimate on the union tags and general styling. Could be early 80s as well, but I really don't think it's a lot later than that. Could be wrong, though.
Is that not brown/cream Glen Check? Or are my eyes going funny? Whatever it is it's a nice find and you can easily have the sleeves altered. It's a quality OTR make so there should be enough cloth in there.
I have a hard time telling the difference between Glen Check and houndstooth plaid, honestly. You're probably right. Believe me, I checked the sleeves for extra fabric, as it fits me perfectly just about everywhere else. Unfortunately there's not enough to let so I'm a sad panda.
Measurements on it are:
Shoulder to shoulder seam in back: 19"
Sleeve (shoulder seam to arm opening on outside): 26"
Chest (armpit to armpit in front with jacket buttoned): 20"
Length (bottom of collar to bottom of jacket): 31"Edited by mistermidwester - 9/18/11 at 8:20pm
