This Pink Tartan suit is my second oldest (two) piece in my closet, again by a long shot. As far as I recall, I picked it up from a clearance rack of a consignment store, 7 or 8 years ago. I’ve been hanging on to it this whole time because of its quality – excellent workmanship and attention to details, and it’s made in Canada. I haven’t worn it much, though, because the style always seemed to me to straddle the fine line between retro and “grandma clothes”. On my younger self, it felt … costumey. But, perhaps, its time has finally come.
It’s still a lot of suit, but I feel like it actually looks best when worn together, rather than mixed with other separates; it has an identity, you know? Anyway, I’m glad that I hung on to it.
