Enjoyed this thread immencely.
As a child I wore those polyester suits but at about 36 (YEAR 2000?) I bought a vintage one to wear as a salesman to compete with another salesman (who was 80 and wore these suits everyday) He was a top seller with his polyester sunburst paisley suits. Sold circles around me... I was forever the number 2 salesperson because of him.
These suits are HOT to wear. My God they don't breathe! I wore a PINE green double breasted one with Shamrock Buttons.
