Beene Bag 70's Wool Suit
Geoffrey Beene established Geoffrey Beene, Inc in 1963 on 7th Avenue. He won the first of several Coty Awards in 1964. In 1968, Beene designed Lynda Bird Johnson’s wedding dress. By the early 1970s, fashion was becoming more informal, and so in 1971 he started BeeneBag, a younger, sportier version of his designs. This suit is a wonderful item from that period of designs. Jacket and Pants ensemble with great detail. Jacket has a knit collar and cuffs with brass buttons. Loose tie belt. Suit is in good condition, there are a few minor moth holes on jacket and belt.
