Vintage 1950s 1960s Tweed Suit Black Cream Houndstooth Check Wool Moss Bros Hacking Jacket Trousers


A vintage 2-piece suit by Moss Bros., made from medium-weight wool in a black & off-white houndstooth or puppytooth check. 3-button single breasted hacking style jacket with notched lapels, lightly padded shoulders, 3-button (non-working) cuffs, 2 lower angled flapped & 1 chest pockets, 12" centre vent, suppressed or fitted waist, fully lined in mushroom grey ribbed rayon/acetate with off-white sleeve linings, 2 inside breast pockets -  high rise trousers with single forward pleats, button fly & braces buttons, side buckle waist adjusters, full-cut legs with slightly angled hems and no turn-ups, 2 side & 1 rear pockets. 'Moss Bros Covent Garden' labels to both pieces.

  Please study the photos carefully - they form an important part of the description.

NB This auction is for the jacket & trousers only - shirt & tie not included .


In good used condition with some overall wear & tear - the jacket has been neatly let out down the side seams, there are sweat marks on the lining at the armpit (not visible from the outside) - the trousers have been let out at the waist, the lining & pocket bags are marked & age-yellowed, there is a neat 'invisible' repair near the right knee & a tiny hole near the left knee, some wear to the back hem edges, slight yellowing to the front of the thighs. The suit has been in storage & would benefit from a good dry cleaning.

Size: Suggested 42 Regular

All measurements are external, taken with the garment laid flat, to be doubled where appropriate (with approx. metric equivalent):

Jacket Chest - armpit to armpit: 23" (58.5cm)

I do my very best to carefully list/illustrate any flaws I find. This is a vintage item, sold as is - no returns unless the item has been grossly misrepresented.

 Please check the above measurements and compare to a similar garment of your own before bidding - no refund offered for items that don’t fit.

Free postage is for UK only; for our mutual benefit I only use 'signed for' services.

Overseas bidders must please contact me for a shipping quote before bidding - it will probably be more expensive than you expect!
