    50s Dapper Set

    No need to worry if your shirt and trousers work together with this stylish, two part set! With a dart and pleat at the front waistline leading out to a straight-fit leg, the cuffed trousers have a super cool and relaxed feel to them and also feature concealed side seam pockets and two welt pockets on the back. The shirt features a welted pocket on the front left and a button down collar, with the added detail of small point at the back neck. A perfect pair which can go from smart to casual simply by untucking the shirt and leaving the top button open!

    Offered here as: Paper Pattern or the Original Pattern.
