Weekend Eye Candy - Gilbert Adrian Suit

Just look at the geometric precision used in constructing this 1940s suit by Gilbert Adrian! A simple stripe fabric is cut and resewn at various angles. Each of the stripes is precisely matched in an intricate marvel of design. I am in love.

Threads magazine did an article about Adrian a year or so ago. His talent was awesome.

Adrian was fantastic. He dressed Greta Garbo, Joan Crawford ... he did all the clothes for the original "The Women" ... a brilliant engineer and designer.

I bid on Adrian suit very similar to this on ebay about three years ago. I lost at $3,600. I should have kept going!
