Barker’s of Kensington Tweed

Here’s a nice example of early 1950s tweed for men. Sold from the venerable barker’s of Kensington, a very good department store back in the day. The tweed is a mix of dull greens and browns. I had to add buttons and fix up the liner and arm liners to get it into shape for selling (see Selling page, above). The cuff buttonholes are properly stitched so if cut through, these would become working cuffs.
