Man's Summer Suit

Goodall-Stanford Inc. was a southern textile mill that developed the original fabric used for Palm Beach summer suits. The washable cloth was meant to be comfortable in the time before air conditioning.
This two-piece summer suit is of light gray fabric. Three buttons are on the front of the jacket and the cuffs, and three front pockets are on the breast and waist. The jacket also features a center back vent.
The pants include two pockets in the front and back, a zippered fly, and pleats. They have a high waist and are cuffed at the bottom.
