Hello Gentlemen,

Man, this is just one incredible suit. From "Philip Pyzer & Son London," an old English bespoke tailor. Certainly from the late 1960's - the styling and cut are absolutely timeless. Stupendous navy herringbone wool fabric with a super-soft hand, which forms a subtle sort of self-stripe. Tons of handwork - pickstitching everywhere! Two button, hacking pockets, single vented, fully lined in a cool light blue geometric liner. Working "surgeon's" cuffs make this a true bespoke suit. Full canvas construction; structured, but not bulky shoulders. Button-front vest with 4 pockets and back belt adjustment. Flat front trousers, partially lined in a super-soft pale yellow silk :slayer:. The pants have the thickest, highest-quality hardware that I've ever encountered. This suit is absolutely stunning, and even more so in person. Color is a rich deep navy that comes to life in the light, as seen in the pictures. Excellent vintage condition - except for a few tiny pin holes on one arm, as pictured below. Measures about a 38 to a 40 R depending on how you wear your suit - please utilize the measurements below. Price includes Priority Shipping CONUS!

Measurements:
Jacket
Chest (flat across) - 20.75"
Shoulders - 18.25"
Length (down back, bottom of collar) - 30.75"
Sleeves (from shoulder) - 25"
