The first of three rather splendid suits from the Laughton jumble sale; all in need of a serious steam-clean, ironing, and a bit of careful attention, but clearly of superlative quality in their day. This grey double breasted number has a tailor’s label giving the gentleman buyer’s name and the date (I.V. Askew Esq; Strickland, Sons & George Ltd. of Green St., Cambridge, head office Savile Row; 1966 ). Mr. I.V. Askew, Esquire, went back for more of the same to this pattern, probably carefully chosen to accommodate and flatter his broad frame (36-inch waist).
