Bergdorf Goodman, one of New York’s most exclusive department stores, was established in 1899. It was started by Herman Bergdorf who employed Edwin Goodman as the house designer and tailor. In the 1920s the store expanded to include ready-to-wear and their famous fur salon. It employed famous designers to create its own house range of quality clothing.

Superb tailoring and presentation in this designer suit. It's also in excellent condition, free from obvious flaws. Love the double zipper in the skirt to enable it to closely follow the hipline but still be easy to put on. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.
