Sharp and smart, this houndstooth check suit has really nice details. The sculptural jacket is slightly cropped and has a kind of blouson effect that is punctuated in the back by two rows of self-fabric buttons. There's a large, almost portrait-like collar and bracelet length sleeves. The skirt is slim and simple. This is from the 50s and it's made from a lighter weight fabric. The tiny check is greenish black with a true olive color.
There are besom buttons holes on this one and a metal side zip on the skirt. This suit is unlined. It was made by Style Vogues Original. (Cute label, too!)
If you're headed to the office, vintage style, this suit ought to suit you well. It pairs perfectly with black accessories and can be worn with a blouse or without one.
EXCELLENT. No flaws.
