WONDERFUL Polo Blue Label Linen Suit!

NB: I have over 350 other items of classic menswear for sale on Style Forum. To browse my listings please go to the "Top Sellers" list on the left-hand side of the B&S page and click on my username, "Tweedydon"--located right at the top! ;)

With its classic cream pinstriping on a rich dark charcoal base, three button front, classic peak lapels, fully functional ticket pocket, four button cuffs, and twin rear vents this suit would be thoroughly at home adorning a senor member of the British Establishment in the corridors of power in London's Westminster during any period from 1945 to now!

Yet although to all appearances this suit is utterly traditional and could readily have been produced by one of the staider Savile Row tailors for a British Senior Civil Servant c. 1965 it is, in fact, Italian, having been made by Corneliani for Polo Blue Lapel by Ralph Lauren very recently. Yet while the cut and appearance of the cloth are more than "inspired by" classic British upper-class tailoring this suit marks a significant departure from that tradition in that it is, in fact, linen--although as you'd expect from Corneliani this is not the wrinkled fabric of cheaper linen jackets, but a lovely sturdy mid-weight version of the cloth with all of the comfort of its lightweight cousin.

The jacket is fully canvassed and fully lined, and features pick stitching on the lapels and the lining. The trousers are pleated and feature traditional side-adjusters instead of belt loops--they also have interior buttons for suspenders.

This suit was, of course, Made in Italy, and is in absolutely excellent condition.

Asking just $95, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA. International inquiries very welcome!
