Wool suit with asymmetrical jacket

When Bruce Papas designed a garment for a Milne & Choyce range, he worked with a team of creative people including fashion illustrators, seamstresses and milliners. Hats were very important in the 1960s and this hat was chosen to complement what Bruce describes as a simple, tailored suit. He worked for Milne & Choyce under the label Bruce Papos.
