Rare Dandie Fashions 1960s mens brown wool three piece suit
Dandie Fashions (sometimes spelled 'Dandy' on their clothing labels) was a high fashion mens boutique on the hip Kings Road, Chelsea for a brief period in the late 1960s.
Operating for just a couple of years, their brightly painted psychedelic shop catered to such rock'n'roll legends as The
Beatles, David Bowie, The Who, The Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix, which gives you a pretty good idea of the pedigree of this short-lived label.
Here we have an original 1960s Dandy Fashions mens three piece suit - rare as hens teeth but much better looking! Beautifully tailored in superb quality brown wool, it fits like a dream and is a surefire investment piece for the future.
