Late 60s Pierre Cardin Men's Suit
Exquisite bespoke suit by Pierre Cardin from approx. 1968. Boldly patterned with a fine meander and tweedy texture. Exaggerated wide lapels influenced by the trend for vintage clothing, specifically Thirties & Forties suits in London and Paris at the time. There are also details unique to this suit like the staggered and odd placement of belt loops. Perfectly tailored with a strong attention for detail. For instance, to keep the trouser lines straight and clean the hem is strongly angled to avoid too intense a break in the front. A suit like this says a lot about the wearer and his individuality and desire to stay ahead of the game. Excellent condition with no flaws to note. sz 40R Armpit to armpit 21.5" Shoulders 18.5" Outside sleeve 25" Length 31" Waist 36" inseam 31" (with a couple inches to let out)
