RARE: 38S RLPL tweed suit (may also fit 38R or a 37R/S)

Will Ship To: Anywhere



Ralph Lauren Purple Label Tweed Suit

Unique & Elegant Styling

38S (may also fit 38R or 37R/S)

£399 with FREE insured/tracked shipping within the UK

(scroll down below the photo for detailed measurements & other information)




This RLPL suit is a wonderfully soft tweed in a very dark green with an overlying check. As you can see from the photos, this rich variegation of colour means it can appear almost charcoal dark grey under an overcast winter sky but on a bright autumn's day, its country colours come to the fore. I've tried to take photos under a range of lighting conditions so you can be assured of beauty of the fabric. I'm on a calibrated monitor and would say that the most colour-accurate photo is the large one illustrating this thread.


This suit is from my own wardrobe and was made by Saint Andrews in Italy from a wool/angora blend to ensure its luxurious combination of warmth, softness & durability. It is in great condition, with no rips, holes, stains, marks, etc. I am selling it because it doesn't fit me as well as it used to and I want to raise some money to partially subsidise a new bespoke order in an attempt to fill the resultant void in wardrobe.


If you're looking for a relaxed & casual suit for use in a less formal workplace, or instead of an odd jacket outfit in any setting, this one is perfect for you. It has some fantastic country/casual details that complement that material perfectly.


Please look through all the photos, read the style details and check the measurements below for more information. Do get in touch with any questions, and to purchase. Paypal payment only please.
