1970s Young Pendleton Plaid Pant Suit

 

 

 

 

We like to think of plaid as another neutral in much the same way you might think of the solid colors black, beige or navy. A great plaid pairs with almost anything – from solids to floral prints, and you need only look at how Ungaro pairs patterns to understand what we're talking about. From Young Pendleton, this wool pant suit is perfect for pairing.  A classic plaid in beige, black, and ivory reminiscent of a Burberry plaid, the suit consists of Pendleton's River Jacket, an unlined, button front style that Pendleton first introduced in 1969 as a coat length jacket, then as a shorter jacket length in 1972. It has a flapped patch pocket at each hip and a self tie belt to cinch the waist. Lined in cotton batiste, the pants are styled to make legs look endless, with a wider leg and flat front, no-waist-band styling. Front zip and button tab closure  create a long and lean line. Both pieces are in excellent condition. Jacket measures: Bust 38”, Waist 36”, Hip 40”, Shoulder 15.5”, Sleeve 22.5”, Length 27".  Pants waist 28", hip 38", inseam 32", thigh circumference 22", total length (waist to hem) 41".  $225
