This Moss Bros suit, designed in 1969, is striking in that it is totally unadorned, even the jacket buttons are concealed by a fly front. The stand-up Nehru style collar became fashionable in the mid 1960s. A daring purple satin lining belies the sober grey exterior. Moss Bros was founded in the 1850s by Moses Moses. The company built its reputation from selling ready-to-wear tailoring.
