Hart Schaffner Marx custom 3-piece, 36R

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Up for sale is my immaculate, blue 3-piece custom suit by Hart Schaffner Marx. I purchased this suit, custom made, through Nordstrom. It retailed for $1,250, and the fabric is a beautiful blue (not too dark), with a subtle birdseye/nailhead pattern to it. The fabric quality is excellent, and given the medium weight, can be worn throughout the year. I have lovingly and diligently cared for this suit, and its condition is testament to my care. The suit was always lightly brushed after every wear, and hung up in my airy bathroom to air out before putting it back into my closet. The jacket condition is flawless, with no rips, snags, holes or spots. The ONLY sign of wear on the jacket is a slight bit of fraying on the lining inside, directly below the right interior chest pocket. The trousers and waistcoat are also in excellent condition, with the only sign of wear being a small amount of pilling on the chest of the waistcoat. This pilling was actually the result of the custom label affixed inside the jacket, rubbing up against the waistcoat (this label read “Made exclusively for (my name)”). Upon noticing the pilling it began to cause, I had it subsequently removed by a seamstress. Like the jacket, the trousers and waistcoat contain no rips, snags, holes or spots. Besides the aforementioned wear areas, this suit is in outstanding condition (I’d rate it 9.5/10). Please read below for additional specifications on each piece. I will gladly furnish additional photos if necessary, including specific areas you may want me to photograph. Thanks for your interest! Suit Details: Made: U.S.A. Style: 3-button, single breasted with pick sticking on notch lapel, 3-piece suit Color: blue Fabric: wool, blue birdseye/nailhead pattern Retail: $1,250 Jacket specifications: Size: 36R Style: single breasted, 3-button with side vents, chest pocket and two lower flap pockets, notch lapel Chest: 19 ¾” Length: 32” Shoulder: 18 ¼” Sleeve: 24 7/8” Waistcoat specifications: Style: single breasted with 6-button front, 4 chest pockets Chest: 18 ½” Length: 21 ¾” (measured from top to bottom of back) Trouser specifications: Size: 30 Style: single reverse pleat, cuffed, with belt loops Waist: 30 ¼” Inseam: 31 ¾” Cuff: 1 ½” Rise: 14 ½” (rear) Rise: 12” (front) Width at cuff opening: 8 7/8” Included with the purchase is a canvas Nordstrom garment bag.

Very nice. Do you have any pictures of it being worn? I'm wondering how much tie is show, and if it'd be possible/smart to have a tailor modify it to a 3/2 roll. Would you say it's on the slimmer side or no?

I do not have any photos of the kind, however, I can snap some pics of myself with it on. I suppose you could have a tailor modify the lapel to turn it into a 3/2 roll, however, I'd probably abstain from doing this for fear of messing the coat up. While the jacket is on the slim side, it isn't quite as slim as other suit coats I've worn, but that is mostly due to my skinny frame (5-10, 130 lbs). Please let me know if you'd like me to take any additional photos for you.
