Founded in 1947 (and, alas, bankrupt in 2003) Corbin was one of the great American clothiers of the Golden Era of Ivy Style--so much so that they named one of their trouser lines "Natural Shoulder"!
This suit is a lovely example of why Corbin were so admired. Cut from a tropical-weight wool in classicIvy Summer Tan this is a contemporary two-buttonsuit with subtle darts. half-canvassed and half-lined it has a single rear vent and four button cuffs--all of thebuttons are natural horn. It has a very natural shoulder.
The trousers are flat-front and uncuffed.
This was was, of course, Union Made in the USA. It is in excellent condition EXCEPT for a scuff mark on the underside of one cuff (as shown), a small scuff on the front (likely easily removed with dry-cleaning), and a small spot on the waist-band, hidden by the belt. Overall, then, this is in Good/ Very Good condition..... And as such is a bargain at just $29, boxed and shipped in the USA.
