is there a breast pocket on the jacket?
the little note in the lower left-hand corner notes that the brand has just started business, which may explain why it's hard to find.
i baked an irish bread, listened to weepy music, and ... went out for Japanese food.

McIntosh. I miss good McIntosh apples here on the west coast. thin skinned, perfumed, a little tart: perfect. Is it because they bruise easily that they aren't often found in supermarkets out here? i hate all those squared off, rock-hard apples with the mouthfeel of balsa. Fuji is good though.
I believe Freedberg's used to make suits for Nordstrom's and other retailers. (Perhaps Louis Boston, as well? Can anyone confirm that?) In the mid-eighties they partnered with Abboud. They had a warehouse in the South End. I don't know if they're still around. edit: found an archived Globe article saying they went out of business in 2002. Their annual warehouse sale used to be a big event, I remember.
but be aware that during sales it may take some time for them to locate a popular suit like that in your size, if they can at all.
