For Sale:
Turnbull & Asser tux 38-40R - super cheap

Will Ship To: Anywhere

This was one of my first SF purchases, not quite my size and in retrospect I should have left it. However I bought it and had the sleeves lengthened. The working buttonholes should have been a problem but this was me 6 years ago, so the sleeves were let out, lining extended with black material on the inside, the most proximal (faux) buttonhole was unpicked and a new buttonhole made at the end of the column. I've taken a photo of the sleeve in bright light to show it as clearly as I can, but certainly in your usual black tie function lighting this would not be seen at all. The extra buttonhole was slightly longer than others but still pretty good and there is a hint of crease where the previous sleeve hem was.

With these issues declared, it is a beautiful tuxedo. Made in Italy. Great material, tons of handwork, just doesn't fit me quite right (I tried it on for a black tie function last night, my first opportunity to wear this instead of my usual PRL DB tux). It is tagged a 38R and and would be best for a 39R or very slim 40R I think. Check measurements and photos.

This would be a 700 usd ish item, but in view of the alterations which weren't cheap I'll offer it at 400usd here. There is a very nice T&A hanger that I can include if you are happy waiting for me to buy a bigger box.--->375-->350--> limited time offer 300usd

Definitely last reduction - big drop to sell quickly (hopefully) to fund another purchase. This is a bargain if the measurements work for you.

Somehow I ended up buying another tux off ebay, so this one is definitely surplus to requirements at present. So whoever's watching, a pre-bump cut to 250 usd shipped (personal preferred) - super super cheap. And I'll throw in a 16.5/34 Thomas Pink fold down collar tux shirt - this is vintage - ie better quality, 'superfine two-fold', pique front collar and cuffs. Very nice - just too big for me.

Price will go back to 300 (and no freebie) when I bump.
