Vintage ladies winter suit 1960s wool tweed

This is a fabulous winter suit from the 1960s. It is fashioned of all wool, in a tweed like pattern. There is nothing made today that is 100% wool, sadly. I should say there is but you would be in a couture salon to find it. This suit has such fabulous tailoring. The skirt is lined with rayon taffeta and has a side metal zip closure. There is a center back pleat on the skirt. The jacket is so retro; picture this with a beehive hair and white sunglasses. This is from the days when women quietly ruled the office, not in the same manner as today. On some level the 1960s was a great time for both clothing and the economy! The jacket has a winter plush lining as shown in the photos. It is definitely made to wear to work as is! You would go to work in this great skirt and winter weight jacket, take off your jacket in the office and have your nylon shell and bullet bra. The jacket has great tailoring details as bound buttonholes, bound pockets and a fabulous retro styling. No label is present.
