The Age Of STEEL & JELLY babies

Philip, one of my readers, recently sent me a link to a curious item being sold on eBay.

At first glance it is a rather unremarkable brown suit jacket, but once you start looking closer it becomes a bit more interesting.

Ironically this is just the jacket, unlike the source of the original fabric for the suit, which was just the trousers!

STEEL & JELLY two button brown/blue pinstripe jacket

This well tailored two button jacket is a soft feel polyester blend fabric in Brown with a fine Electric Blue pinstripe design.
The jacket has a stunning blue Bull's Eye pattern satin like polyester and viscose lining.
Two side pockets with flaps plus ticket pocket, one outer breast pocket, two inner breast pockets and a ticket pocket.

Two 8" vents, 3" lapels and four button detail on cuffs. Two spare buttons.

Size label states 38" Reg
External measurements: Armpit to armpit 21".
Shoulder seam to shoulder seam 18.5".
Length; base of collar to rear hem 30.5".
Sleeve; shoulder seam to cuff 25.5"
