Unlined suit with shirt & tie

In Geoffrey Bailey's clothes we can see that the rules of the classic men’s suit lost some of its formality during the 1970s with the omission of jacket lining and with pockets stitched onto the outside or foregone altogether. The shirt was made by Auckland manufacturer, Ambler & Co. Read more about 1970s fashion in the New Zealand Fashion Museum publication The Age of Aquarius: A 70s Revolution in Fashion
