Likely dating from the 1980s or early 1990s (just before the closure of The English Shop) this wonderful suit could easily have been made anytime from the late 1950s onwards with its classic cut and beautiful construction.
Cut from a mid-grey sharkskin fabric (wool cloth woven in a subtle two tone--here, so subtle as to appear almost solid--that is lightweight and wrinkle-resistant) this has a lovely 3/2 lapel roll. The jacket is half-canvassed and half-lined. It has a single center vent and two button cuffs.
The trousers are flat-front, and have a lovely hickory stripe lining for the pockets and waist. They are uncuffed, and zip with their original Talon zipper which works perfectly.
It was, of course, Union Made in the USA.
This suit is in excellent condition, and is a bargain at just $75, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA.
