Another lovely Wash and Wear suit, this time cut as a contemporary two-button suit with subtle darts. Featuring a single center vent, a half-lining, and three button cuffs, this was made by Palm Beach (who, at the time of this suit's making, had just acquired Haspel) for Joske's of San Antonio... THE Texan Department store that was founded in 1873 and whose main store San Antonio offered customers the option of custom-made saddles.
The suit's trousers are flat-front and cuffed.
For a suit that is over 30 years old--Joske's ceased to be independent in 1987--this suit is in absolutely excellent condition. Indeed, it would be in absolutely excellent condition if it had been made last year! It does have one flaw--there are two small brown marks on the upper left lapel, as shown. These are surface marks only, and so will likely come out with the first dry-cleaning, but because they are there this suit is in Very Good condition.
This suit was Union Made in the USA. It's a bargain at just $29, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.
