This debonair tuxedo will have you steppin’ out to breathe an atmosphere that simply reeks with class! All three pieces are made of fine black wool. The tailcoat features silk faille peak lapels, jetted chest pocket, one inner pocket, and four button cuffs. Trousers have a steel Talon zip fly, full set of suspender buttons, pleated front, and silk stripe down the sides. Two slash pockets on the sides and two back pockets with one buttoning. Matching shawl collar wool vest has a 4-button closure, two welted pockets, and one "hidden" inner pocket, with a back waist adjuster for fit. By "Town Club Clothes" with a great silhouette image of a rat-pack trio of well-dressed gentlemen, "For the smartest dressers" by Jordan Marsh Company. This tuxedo is in great vintage condition, with no holes, stains, odors to note.

Please Note: We list the Suit Size in the Title. A "Suit Size" is taken from your actual chest measurement. While we'd like a well-fitted suit, we don't want a skin-tight suit, so the actual jacket chest measurement is generally a few inches larger.

Shoulder: 21”
Sleeve: 24”
Overall Length: 45.5”
