Vintage 1950s Taupe Colored Gabardine Suit by Chicago – Aurora Tailoring Size 42 Short


  • Details
    For your consideration we have this vintage suit made under the Chicago – Aurora Tailoring label from 1956! The suit is in overall great condition for its age but does have a few flaws to note… There is some spotting on the trousers by the front rise, on the left thigh and right shin area. The jacket has some discoloring around the cuffs, a couple of tiny spots on the right front and a tiny hole in the right upper arm.

    The suit has been dry cleaned and is ready to wear!

    Gabardine cloth

    The suit comes in a light taupe color and features a single button front, welted jacket pockets, unvented back and all of the styling’s of the bold era including a heavily padded shoulder, longer jacket length. The trousers feature a double pleated front, watch pocket and drop belt loops.
