Original Early 1950s 50s Vintage Teal Gabardine His And Hers Skirt Suit And Matching Blazer
These wonderful garments were made as a part of a matching his and hers custom order in 1951. The set consists of a ladies skirt suit and men’s blazer produced in a teal coloured gabardine.
The skirt suit features an open v neckline with a downward turned notched lapel collar. A single row of four buttons runs down the jacket from the point of the neckline to the waist. A pair of functional slit waist pockets with flap covering are a useful and practical addition to a slightly nipped waist. The matching skirt has a side metal zipper with top button closure and a box kick pleat topped with arrow stitching at the front and back. Inside, the jacket is lined in satin, has a MB monogram as well as a maker’s custom order label.
The matching men’s jacket features strong padded shoulders to give an exaggerated silhouette. It is cut in a double breasted style with a horizontal lapel collar with decorative button holes on each side. A pair of functional slit waist pockets and a similar breast pocket combines with an inside pocket to give plenty of space for keys and a wallet. Inside, the jacket is lined in satin and has a monogram label for BA and a similar maker’s custom order label. The blazer could alternatively be worn as a loose fitting ladies overcoat that would perfectly match the suit.
