This suit has been languishing at the rear of my late Father's wardrobe, I would suspect it dates from the 1970's as I can remember him buying it - it was one of his main work suits for a number of years

The coat is made of polyester and wool with a satin type lining - this is a very heavy tweed type material

There is no indication of size in the garment but when he was young my Father normally wore large size clothing, as he got older he moved up to XL. The dimensions are armpit to armpit -21 inches, length collar to bottom - 31 inches and sleeve length from armpit to cuff 17 inches. The trousers have a 38 inch waist and a 29 inch inside leg

The buttons are all there and match and for a very old item it appears to be in very good order. - there is a stain on the inside lining where a pen in the inside pocket has leaked but other than that it seems to be in good order.

I will send this anywhere but in view of the substantial weight postage overseas will be fairly high - I will get a quote for anyone outside the UK if they would liketo e-mail
