From AIS Bulletin #193 April 1969 Introducing SAILOR TOGS (Marsh '69). M. 34". Sdlg. 67-30. 64-31 X 65-70. This product of two DISTANT HILLS seedlings is a self, much darker, bluer and more ruffled than Distant Hills, with heavy ruffling on the very wide, clean hafts. The smooth dark blue colored flowers do not fade and show good heavy substance. The large round falls are semiflaring with lighter blue beard. The stiff standards are ruffled and slightly open. It gives seven to nine flowers with wellspaced branching that is quite close to the stalk. A good grower with good increase. Has clean blue-green foliage. Is very seed fertile. HM '68. $25.00 each, two for $45.00, three or more $20.00 each. James Marsh.
I discovered the navy colored SAILOR TOGS this year, and immediately added it to my list of outstanding varieties. In a year when most dark colored flowers were water spotted, SAILOR TOGS was free of any blemish. Add this to the fact that it had all other good qualities, and you will know why it appealed to me so much. [Mullin, Ron (1971). Irises I Like, American Iris Society Bulletin 204(January 1972), 12.]
