This is Not Your Mother's Pantsuit. Although it Might Have Been in 1969
One of my many favourite things about this picture is that it includes all those four views of the outfit, as though we might otherwise miss an aspect of its full glory. I'm trying to figure out when this photo dates from. My best guess is that it was published in the late sixties. If I'm right, I'd love to see this outfit make an appearance on Mad Men, worn with that sublime unconsciousness with which the talented Mad Men cast carries off all their hilarious-to-modern-eyes outfits.
