This distinctive suit with its long frock coat and tall 'highwayman' collar was worn for public appearances by the cabaret group 'The International Minipops' who toured their musical puppet show on luxury cruise-liners.It is typical of the more flamboyant menswear available from Carnaby Street boutiques in the 1960s. Retailers such as Take Six's owner, Sidney Brent, carefully courted show-business personalities as clients in order to generate useful publicity.
