Vintage 60s Penneys Towncraft 100% Wool Tweed 2 Pc Suit Brown Striped Mod 41 R

Tough enough to find true vintage tweed blazers from this era, but finding two piece suits of coarse wool tweed from any vintage era is impossible. This one has a burnt orange stripe pattern over brown wool tweed with an intermittent herringbone grain. Features a single breasted two button front style with flap front waist pockets, a slanted breast pocket, also 60's era wide collar lapels (I'm thinking this one is mid 60's, post the Kennedy skinny lapel era, probably'65/'66 with the pants waist style, we'll get to that in a bit). The sleeve cuffs have two buttons apiece; the interior has a partially lined interior with minty fresh interior labels, pockets, and hanger loop - also it has a single vent in the rear. The pants have a flat front waist with slight drop style belt loops This is why I date to this era.

Still hanging on to that aspect, so a transitional era suit, also uncuffed leg openings. It has some scattered surface holes, see pics. Pants only have one on the back leg.

Overall really aside from one area on the jacket (see pics), there's only few others sparsely here and there, and aside from that there's no staining, the buttons are really solidly sewn on still with none missing, and the fabric actually feels pretty fresh like it wasn't exactly worn a ton, and the holes it does have are passable, still a very nice presentable vintage suit with timeless style.
