Joseph Haspel founded Haspel in New Orleans in 1909 with the express aim of creating clothing that could be worn comfortably in the sub-tropical humidity of the Deep South. Owing to the connections between New Orleans and Princeton, Haspel's seersuckers--and then pincords, and wash-and-wear--worked their way into being a staple of summer Ivy Style.
This is a lovely example of a vintage Haspel Wash-and-Wear pincord suit. Cut with a contemporary two-button front and darting, this is half-lined in traditional cream and has a single center vent. It features four button cuffs, and was Union Made in the USA. The trousers are flat-front and cuffed.
This does have one very small flaw--a small mark on one shoulder, as shown--and so this is in Very Good/Excellent condition.
Asking just $35, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.
