Smart 1950s Three Piece Plaid Suit with Matching Purse


  • Product Description

      If you follow Fab Gabs at all, you know how much I love a beautiful, tailored suit. This early 50s suit (from right around exactly 1950) is not just beautifully tailored, but also made of a gorgeous textile, an Al Jean tartan wool, with beautiful rich colors. No doubt, the best part of this already incredible suit, is the matching wool plaid purse (Styled by Du-Val). The jacket features a notched collar and hip pockets, and is impeccably tailored. It is lined in rayon acetate. The skirt is sharply pleated, very unusual for a skirt suit from the time and well suited to the plaid pattern. It closes with a metal zipper on the side and button, and is unlined.

      There are two tiny moth nips on the flap of the purse. There is one small darned area on the skirt 1/4" by 1/4". I find no other issues to note.
