Gorgeous 1940s ADRIAN Tailored Suit in Navy Blue Wool Gabardine with Self-Fabric Insets and


  • Product Description

      Adrian has always been my holy grail designer. As with every suit from this master, this suit is perfectly crafted with subtle details that elevate it above the average suits of the era. It is made of crisp navy blue gabardine suiting. The cut of the jacket is perfection - sturdy, firmly sculpted shoulder pads and a tailored waist. A double row of buttons marches up the front. The piecework that makes an Adrian unique is in play at every point on the jacket, with the buttons framed by pieces that are turned on the bias, and accented with little tabs. There are narrow insets as well - one just below the yoke, that looks as though it "continues" onto the sleeves. One at the ribcage on the right, and one on the waist at the left. Forgive my photos - lighting issues have been causing noise on dark garments that I'm really struggling with.

      The suit bears the Adrian Originals tag, and is lined with crepe. The classic skirt is unlined, and has a vent at the center back.

      This suit is in clean and ready to wear. There is some mild sheen on the right side, that feels more from just regular movement of the arm than from pressing. There is some fade and weakness to the lining at the underarms. A previous owner opened up the kick pleat, split it a bit it seems, then closed it back up to the original point. It's done by hand, and just imperfect enough than I found it on close inspection, but isn't notable when worn.
