This printed corduroy suit was created at the height of the trend for psychedelic colours. It is made from corduroy furnishing fabric. The donor, David Mlinaric, bought the fabric on a visit to the US so that he could have a suit made from it on his return home. Like denim, corduroy was a fabric originally used for work clothes that was then adopted for leisure wear.
