Best Man jacket is made of only 9 sewing patterns, it’s the smallest number among vintage Ken jacket.

Best Man jacket’s white fabric is the same as the white trousers from 1965 #1405 Roller Skate Date.

Best Man trousers has got side lines on the both side of trousers same as #787 Tuxedo but the Best man’s side lines(fabric tapes) are just sewn to trousers, not “piping” so Best Man trousers are made of 2 fabric parts like many other vintage Ken trousers. (His Tuxedo trousers are made of 4 fabric parts and the side lines are made by piping processing).

Best Man jacket looks very similar to the two 1966 jackets(#1421 Seein’ The Sights and #1422 Summer Job), but the sewing pattern is different.

Regular Best Man trousers the weave of the fabric is diagonal but the trousers of mine the weave is horizontal. this fabric comes from 1965 Ricky #1503 Sunday Suits trousers, obviously stock fabrics were used for my Japanese-Best Man(K1425) trousers.

ジャケットのパターンは、同じ1966年の#1421Seein’ The Sights,#142Summer Jobのジャケットのパターンにとても似ていますが違います。

Tuxedoのスラックスと同じように、Best Man のスラックスにも側章(サイドライン)があります。Best Manのスラックスはその他のヴィンテージケンのスラックスと同じように2枚の生地パーツから作られていて、側章(サイドライン)が縫い付けられています。
