80s/90s Black And White Glen Plaid Pleated Wool Skirt Suit

Stanley Marcus, of Neiman Marcus lineage and fame, once declared that the greatest luxury in the world for a woman was to own a dress by James Galanos. Indeed, Hubert de Givenchy, the illustrious French couturier, once looked at the inside of a Galanos garment and exclaimed "... we don't make them this well in Paris!"

This suit by James Galanos is a beautifully tailored example - both inside and out - of Galanos's exacting standards. The jacket is made in a black and white houndstooth wool and lined in black silk charmeuse. It features wide pleats across the bottom front, an element that is repeated across the bottom of the skirt. The buttons are hidden by a seamless placket that curves seamlessly around the neck. All of the fabric margins are cased in black silk to prevent raveling. (If you're a sewer, you might also notice that the seam allowances are particularly generous.)

Except for the Galanos designer label, no other labels are present. This makes it a little tricky to date the suit, because Galanos used the same logo on his labels since 1963. However, since Galanos retired in 1998, and because the condition of the suit is like new, we are placing it in the 1990s.
