SOLD. GRAIL! Vintage Polo Ralph Lauren Double Breasted Suit in Grey Flannel

SOLD. GRAIL! Vintage Polo Ralph Lauren Double Breasted Suit in Grey Flannel

This is absolutely gorgeous! Cut from a wonderfully heavy and luxurious flannel with a terrific hand and drape, this suit shows why Ralph Lauren rose to prominence for his English-inspired tailoring--and why Norman Hilton broke with him, for this is very much an Anglo-inspired jacket, rather than one that follows the American Ivy League Style. The cloth is wonderful, and the cut of this jacket does full justice to it. Cut as a classic double breasted jacket with a six button front and two button closure, this features peak lapels and twin vents; it is also darted.. It is fully canvassed and fully lined; the trousers are pleated and cuffed. This is the sort of suit that a former RAF officer would wear to a country house weekend after the War!

This was Union made in the USA, and is in absolutely excellent condition.

Asking just $60, or offer, for this beauty.
