>> Martin Greenfield Golden Fleece for BROOKS BROTHERS Custom 40R 3-Piece Suit >>

post #1 of 8

** SOLD - THANKS GUYS **

I thought I'd put something up about this AMAZING Golden Fleece suit that I've got in 40R before I list it on eBay. It was made by Martin Greenfield in New York (google him if you don't know - he's the "Tailor to Presidents") as a display suit but it doesn't appear to have even been pinned to a mannequin (the trousers aren't even creased).

It has many custom touches but the size is a standard 40R - perfect! I've got the actual production ticket from his facility that shows all of the specifications.

I have included a few pictures of it below. It is exceedingly difficult to capture the beauty of a suit like this in a couple of pictures. If you take a look at those and would like some more information, let me know and I can give you all measurements, specs, etc.

A few of the basics are:




Super 130s wool
Navy herringbone
40R
34W trousers
Matching vest
Custom awning stripe interior lining to vest and sleeves of jacket
Hand-stitched edges of lapels and pockets, etc.
Side vents in rear
Unfinished sleeves
All button holes are hand-finished
Prong loop on trousers
and more and more...





If you're interested, let me know. I will be posting it tonight on eBay if I don't get a taker this afternoon but I'll give you first chance at it.

>> I don't know if I've every seen a Brooks Brothers suit that I personally like better than this one - I don't say that lightly <<

Since it was custom produced as a display, it doesn't have a retail price. My educated guess (you can check with your local BB) would be $2300+ as new off-the rack Golden Fleece suiting ranges up to $1900 and this one is a 3-piece.

I'll be posting it on eBay for $340 but would be willing to do $270 (including shipping) if I can save the listing fees/hassle and find a good home for it with an SF member...

I will buy it for $270 if the measurements work for me. I sent you a PM.

If it does not work for gefinzi, I will take it measurements permitting. Just PM me with the measurements if it does not work out.

Thanks, Gene

A few measurements that might be helpful (all should be standard for GF 40R):

Shoulder seam-to-seam: 19.5 inches
Top of collar to bottom of jacket: 32 inches
Sleeves are unfinished
Trousers are uncuffed with fabric to 37.5 inches
Trousers are pleated
Full set of horn buttons are included for finishing

I hope that helps!

Why wouldn't you sell it to the first person who responded to your listing?

Beautiful suit and unfortunately not my size. But for future reference, you omitted several measurements that I would need to know before buying a suit:

sleeve length from shoulder seam
chest
waist
