This product is unavailable

One glance at this suit and it's easy to see why it was so wildly popular with the likes of Cary Grant, Clark Gable and the rest of the Hollywood elite. Originally designed in the 1930s, the Palm Beach look quickly rose in popularity and became known as the American summer suit of choice. This lightweight summer blend also was touted as the Wall Street businessman's uniform for hot days.

This suit is made in Panama and crafted out of a beautiful medium-weight cotton and mohair blend. The jacket is a double-breasted 6-roll-2 with peak lapels, which were very popular at the time. It is unlined and fastens with 6 mother-of-pearl buttons. Trousers have a button fly.
