Vintage Greyish White Linen Suit with Dark Grey Accent Detail, Gimbel Brothers, ca Late 1940s

$150.00 USD



  • Linen
This suit is in excellent vintage condition: I can find no flaws; it still bears the dry cleaning tag. The button closure on the back of the skirt has gone missing. Please be sure to note the row of 4 pretty dark grey hexagonal buttons, each with its center rhinestone, down the front; note, too, the asymmetrical pocket at each hip with its dark grey flap and the flattering double notched collar with its dark grey edging. The 1 1/2" turned up cuffs give the suit jacket a sassy, soft feel. There is a soft, white satin shoulder pad on each side of the jacket. There is a tiny interior tag that indicates the suit is a size 6 - but if you now vintage, you know that this is way off by today's sizing standards!
