The jacket also features a notched collar with lapels, a buttonhole in the left only. Bound pockets with flaps over the openings are on the lower front, and a stand collar is on the upper left front. The jacket is unlined and has three gray button closures on the center front opening.
- The pants have side pockets at the upper front and bound pockets at the upper rear. The left rear pocket closes with a black button.
