Antique late Edwardian, early 1920s tropical weight mohair cotton blend (Palm Beach Cloth) jacket, cream with subtle blue pinstripes, open lapel, oversized mother of pearl buttons, large pockets and back button strap.
In 1908, Goodall Worsted Co., of Sanford, Maine, purchased the patent for a tropical weight mohair-cotton blend fabric developed by William S. Nutter. Goodall called the fabric Palm Beach cloth and sold it directly to tailors and manufacturers. In 1931 the company began producing suits from that fabric as well. The Palm Beach suit became a summer classic, washable and comfortable.
