Thanks for the heads up, but the PL is what I'm really after. So it is possible, though, to get RLPL for $150, they just didn't have any in stock when you were last there?

I will look the next time I am there. Won't be until Fri though. They had the same suit I described to Edward in a 38, but it was a short I think. Edward, PL is the same price, but those pieces show up much less frequently. I will keep my eyes open though. I am friends with the manager, so I get to go in the stockroom for my "private showing" before they are put on the floor.

Thanks! I would probably buy any 38R suit in that price range.

Thanks a lot man. If you see any Purple Label in a 40r in that range, please do let me know, and we'll work something out.

And a very nice navy chalkstripe 38S

I actually own this chalkstripe. I purchased it on sale for five bills and some change at the Polo store last January. Not a Purple Label, but a very nice suit. It never fails to attract attention and compliments when I wear it.

That doesn't make it tweed. A lot of fabrics in the '30s were thick.

It's a nice suit at an ok price. Thanks for posting the pictures.

I love the suit. I think you did good at that price.

Love it, except for the flat front trousers.

I know they are popular now but I think they wil cause the suit to look dated soon. A lot more than pleated trousers would, IMHO.
post #41 of 50
so, who bought the 42L?

found it quite interesting, thought about it, but passed. i disagree with cuffthis about the flat front pants, and find that to be a bonus, but that's horses for courses.

Uh... what? Flat fronts are classic, they were around before pleats were.

The seller has another of the glen plaid suits for sale, size 46L

Plus, there are probably 50 winter sport coats in various sizes at the Polo outlet where this came from. None as nice as the Cashmere coat that chorse got though. Seriously, if anyone needs odd jackets, I can go and take a look for you.

Is there any chance of finding another of the suits that started this thread? That 3piece professor-special? If you found one of those, I'd be most grateful!
