NOW SOLD FINAL PRICE DROP NWT Kilgour Savile Row RTW sz46 Navy Super 140s Suit

SOLD THANKS. Original retail was £2250/$3600. ASKING $800 > $700 > $650 INCLUDING SHIPPING WORLDWIDE. Also now listed on Ebay at $650, but Style Forum purchase secures free shipping.

This suit has been hanging in my wardrobe since last September - beautiful suit, great construction and very nice cloth. Alas, a sudden rush of blood on purchasing (decent discount on retail!!) blinded me to the fact that the jacket is just too short for me, so here it is up for sale. I am 6' 5" with long legs so the shortish jacket looks wrong on me, but doubtless would be great on somebody less tall or with different proportions! The suit is unworn, but I have had the sleeves lengthened by an inch and the trousers hemmed.

Signiature Kilgour RTW 1-button suit in a nice navy blue super 140s worsted wool with cashmere (1%) and silver mink (1%). I believe that the cloth is by Holland and Sherry (Victory 9oz weight). Features full canvas construction, hand-done pickstitching, notch lapels, angled hacking pockets, dual rear vents. Sleeve buttons are non-functional. Fully-lined jacket (the labels say it is 'structured regular suit', so not the buggy-lined unstructured Kilgour version).

I think the suit is post-Brandelli Kilgour (others with more expertise than I may confirm this?). Certainly the labels on the suit say 'Made in Italy' (during Brandelli's time RTW was made in Shanghai I believe) and the fit is certainly less slim than another Kilgour suit I purchased several years ago during Brandelli's tenure.

MEASUREMENTS:

JACKET:
Chest (when laid flat and jacket buttoned)- 23 inches (so 46 inches overall)

Jacket waist (measured across at the height of the single button) - 22 inches (so 44 inches overall)

Shoulder seam to shoulder seam across the back - 19.5 inches

Sleeve length (from shoulder seam) - 27 inches

Overall length (from top of collar and measured down the back of the jacket) 32.75 inches

PANTS:

Waist - 40 inches (with 5 inches to let out)

Inseam - 35 inches (with a further 1.5 inches in the hem)

Overall length - 46 inches

Rise - 11 inches

Leg opening (at cuff) - 9.5 inches

Leg width at knee - slightly over 10.5 inches

Leg width at crutch - 15 inches

Kilgour hanger shown in pictures is included in the sale.
