Lovely 70s corduroy 2 piece suit by Strelitz. Fine black (or near black) cord with a small ditsy print of purple, green and beige flowers. Jacket is fitted and has a big step lapel and strong padded shoulders. Single breasted front with three red shank buttons. Slot pockets with flaps on the hip. Long back vent for movement. Comes with the matching high waisted skirt with side zip and button. A-line fit. Both lined in purple acetate. Pure cotton cord fabric.
The suit is labeled a vintage size 14 but I would estimate approx a modern day UK10, or a general S-M. Please refer to the measurements for your best fit and please note that you may need to leave a little bit of room for movement depending on desired fit.

14" from shoulder to shoulder

Very good condition.
Skirt has maybe been shortened, but still has original hem, which is generous. Buttons might also have been replaced, as the skirt button differs from the jacket buttons. Some handstitched cotton bias binding finish the inside edges of the lining of the cuffs, and this looks like it's not original to the suit.
