A rare 1969, Hawkes (Gieves & Hawkes pre 1974) Bespoke Savile Row Double Breasted Suit, dark navy Blue. Hard to find style, 3 piece , short double vents, pleated trousers, turn ups, brace buttons. With suitable accessories would provide a vintage look across eras from 1930's to the 50's.
Has been worn many times and the outer material shows wear/shine, so this suit may be better for events and re-enactments than everyday formal wear. Originally founded as two separate companies (Hawkes in 1771 and Gieves in 1784) the two merged to form Gieves &Hawkes.Headquartered in the impressive white building on the corner of Savile Row and Vigo Street. No size lable, fits as a 38 small or slim 40 medium , with a 34 to 36 waist, the inside leg fits as a 29 to 30 due to the long rise of the trousers. This suit has been worn many times I think, as the outer material shows signs of wear and shine. So do not expect perfect condition, however no tears, or worn button holes or stains.
