In 2004, Alexander McQueen continued to assert his dominance and innovation in the fashion industry, a period during which his work was characterized by its raw emotional power and intricate craftsmanship. This year was particularly significant for McQueen, as he presented collections that pushed the boundaries of conventional fashion design, blending theatrical drama with avant-garde aesthetics.

The Spring/Summer 2004 collection, titled "Deliverance," was a standout. Inspired by the 1969 film "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" which revolves around a Depression-era dance marathon, the collection showcased McQueen's ability to transform narrative and emotion into physical form. The runway show itself was a performance, featuring models in a dance marathon setting, which highlighted the despair and exhaustion portrayed in the film. The clothing was a mix of 1930s-inspired silhouettes with McQueen’s signature modern twists, demonstrating his skill in tailoring and historical reference.

This tailored suit is meticulously crafted with hand-sewn patchwork that incorporates elements of men's shirting alongside a blend of glossy and matte cottons. Reflecting the resourcefulness of the Depression era, the suit uses only materials that would have been available at the time. It's quite uncommon to find both elements of the suit together, making this complete ensemble a particularly exciting discovery.

The suit boasts remarkable craftsmanship evident in the patch designs, deliberately frayed threads, and small slash pockets at the front. It features raw-edged hems on both items and unfinished buttonholes accompanied by the buttons themselves. The trousers are distinctively designed at the top and fasten from the front, while the fully lined jacket includes gathered details at the back and patches on the elbows. The patchwork showcases a variety of patterns, including checks and stripes in hues of cream, taupe, burgundy, and gray against a cream-toned background.

Produced in Italy from 100% cotton and marked as size 44, this outfit continues to reveal new intricacies upon closer inspection. For aficionados of vintage Alexander McQueen pieces, this suit represents an exceptional addition to their collection.
