A Prince of Wales Glen Plaid Two-piece Suit with blue Windowpanes

An all time favourite of mine is the beautiful Prince of Wales or Glen Plaid check, so when I first laid my eyes on this suit I immediately fell in love. The colours are quite nice and especially the sky-blue window pane looks fabulous.
Furthermore the suit is bespoke made by a true craftsman, which you can see in the cut, how the canvassing and the lapels are done and the details of the handmade buttonholes.
All tailor labels have sadly been removed. Based on the the fabric and the slim cut I estimate the suit to be of the 1960s.
The fabric is medium to heavy weight and great for all year in Denmark except for the Summer.

I like to wear plain blue shirts with this suit: blue to catch and enhance the hue from the windowpanes and plain as the check pattern itself does not call for more disturbances from stripes, checks or other patterns in shirt and tie.

wearing my two-piece POW check suit, a light blue Stenström's shirt (to match the blue windowpanes), a blue, whitedotted, handrolled Shantung Grenadine tie from Drakes London. Dark Oak Cheaney & Son brogue shoes.


Slim cut, long single vent

Perfect fit trousers with fishtail back. White braid-ended braces from Albert Thurston
