Just found this casual but classic 100% cotton plaid set in a beloved style from the mid-Seventies. Mister Leonard was a popular Canadian clothing label started in 1965, making sportswear that sold in several major department stores. It prospered until the late 1980’s and finally closed in 1999, due to market pressures and the declining health of it’s founder.
For Summer and into Fall, nothing could be more comfortable and cute than an ensemble like this, which could be worn everyday at home or tricked up a bit for work. Pure cotton clothing is always desirable, but the quality of this fabric sets it apart as well as tailoring details which are uncommon today.
Just my size, too! Here’s another keeper . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
