Baxter has a French pedigree as this design was extracted from a Bayard catalogue circa 1935. Baxter is an avant-garde silhouette that would have been worn by men who flaunted convention. While today this ensemble seems rather conservative, etiquette from the period would have dictated that men's fashion never push the boundaries of correct attire. Baxter's exaggerated silhouette would have been rather shocking in its time.
The vest is single breasted with contrasting shawl collar and sports 4 functioning single welt pockets and 6 buttons. Both the vest and trousers are stitched in hunter green, brown, creme and yellow wool tweed windowpane.
The Baxter vest is shown with the Duke shirt in White Pique.
Dry clean only.
