Late 1950s wool suit

This lovely late 1950s style suit in bright sea green wool/cashmere blend is a perfect example of the era with the cropped jacket’s large peter pan collar and fabric covered buttons and the full skirt with asymmetrical pleats.

Say hello to beautiful tweed pt. 2

This lovely early 1930’s inspired coat in bias cut wool check Harris tweed is a fine example of the era. It has original vintage burgundy bakelite buttons details in the cuffs and pockets with additional funnel collar effect when fastened. With a bakelite buckle belt.
