This Henri Bendel label, early 90s black pantsuit is a stylish, lightweight wool gabardine ladies trouser suit with a double-breasted, hip-length jacket and a high-waisted, skinny pleated pant. The long jacket has large shoulder pads, notched lapels and faux pocket flaps at the hips (only actual jacket pocket is the left-side chest pocket). The narrow trousers taper slightly from the hip to the hem, and are pleated for a bit of fullness below the high-waisted, fitted waistband, complete with belt loops. The pant fastens in front with a plastic zip and single button and has 2 diagonal pockets. The trousers are unlined, but the jacket is fully lined in black acetate taffeta. The suit is in very good condition, with two small issues: a tiny mend in the wool fabric at the top of the left shoulder and some slight puckering to the fabric of one jacket lapel (probably from moisture that has gotten into whatever has been used inside as interfacing, to stiffen the lapel fabric) which might be resolved by a professional pressing. This 1990s power pantsuit could be worn to work, but it could also functional as formalwear—as the feminine version of a classic tuxedo!
