It wasn’t until the 1980’s that all suits were fully lined. Somehow, we associated a full lining with better quality garments. Not necessarily true. Lining can hide a lot of sins.
These seams are beautifully finished.
And wouldn’t you like a jacket that you could chuck around like a shirt? One that wears as comfortably and keeps you cooler since there is minimal lining to trap hot air?
