Peerless of Boston suit, size 4/6
This vintage 100% wool tweed suit is by Peerless of Boston.
It has a nice full cherry-mauve (feels like acetate) lining.
The tweed pattern is in blue-gray, light gray, and light plum.
It has long lapels, two faux leather front buttons, and long sleeves with two buttons on each.
The lower front pockets have full flaps and the slit breast pocket has a diagonal top rim.
The skirt has a one button left side front closure with two angular slit pockets (the one on the left is a faux pocket).
The skirt tag says it's a 9/10, but the waist fits a size 6 with fuller hips because of the gathering extending downward from the waistband.
It belonged to a former New York model who was a size 6 when she wore this.
