Original Early 1950s 50s Vintage Teal Gabardine His And Hers Skirt Suit And Matching Blazer

£295.00

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.

Shipping Policy

We will always send your item by Royal Mail Recorded Delivery, Parcelforce or another similar courier so that we are able to track your package and confirm safe receipt. Please always ensure that your address details are correct at the time of purchase as we will be unable to refund items sent to the wrong address. Please note that we will only dispatch an item once payment has been confirmed and never before, therefore certain types of payment such as echeques will incur a delay as we will wait for the funds to clear. In the event that an item is returned to us through no fault of our own we will give you the opportunity to have the package resent, however you will be expected to bear any additional costs. Please note that Royal Mail will not send items recorded to an international PO Box number and that if you ask us to send to such an address and your item gets lost, you are still liable for the cost of the item and its postage. The purchaser will be expected to pay any local taxes and customs charges that may apply to an item and Black Sheep Antiques will always declare the item's value as the original purchase price.

Refund Policy

Our business is in old and beautiful clothing, this is great because what we offer will often be rare and sometimes unique but this does mean that we will be unable to offer you replacements most of the time. The description that we use to list a product will always be honest and we will try to describe and photograph any faults that may affect the enjoyment of the item. However we must stress that these are period vintage garments and as a result they will often show signs of general wear. In fact, it is often what makes these items so very unique. As a result we do not offer refunds or returns unless items have been materially misdescribed. Please ensure that you check all measurements carefully and feel free to request additional measurements if required as we do not offer returns due to fit.
