Louis Jourdan “Gaston Lachaille” black three-piece tails suit from Gigi. (MGM, 1958) Pants with black-chain piping first worn by Hurd Hatfield in the title role for The Picture of Dorian Gray, then combined with the vest for some unspecified actor in the 1949 Words and Music, then finally re-purposed by MGM again (the epitomé of creative recycling) by adding the tail-coat for Louis Jourdan as “Gaston Lachaille” in Gigi. Tailcoat bears maker’s label “Maurice Breslave, Paris” and is inscribed inside sleeve “L.J. #2” and “L. Jourdan”; vest bears MGM label “1427-5068/ 42”; pants bear MGM label “H. Hatfield/ 143578230 ½ 39.”
