Description

Seeking to emphasis austerity fashions, a Melbourne maker of Langsford's "Personality Clothes" produced this suit, modelled by Mr Langsford. The suit, which costs just under two pounds to make from sugar bags, with the original markings still on them as evidence of their origin. One of Mr Langsford's assistants models a costume made from left overs of suit lengths.
