Suit with leg-of-mutton sleeves
Joyce and her husband are longtime friends of Gus Fisher. When visiting from Wellington in the 1960s they would meet for drinks at his Shortland St apartment before going out. They later moved to Auckland. Joyce purchased this suit from the French Shop in Remuera and wore it to the races with a matching pillbox hat.
