DROP! c. 40, 42R. Custom Made 3/2 Tweed Sack Suit by Brigg's of Providence, RI. OFFERS WELCOME!

Will Ship To: Anywhere

This is stunning--a beautiful bespoke 3/2 sack tweed, c. 40, 42R.

Brigg's of Providence is now long gone, having been replaced by Marc Allen, which is a more fashionable version of the old store. They still offer custom tailoring, though, and specialise in Loro Piana cashmeres and Barberis woolens which you'll select from one of their signature orange club chairs, so all is not lost!

This suit is a beauty! A perfectly cut 3/2 sack jacket with a wonderful lapel roll, the jacket is half-canvassed and half-lined. It's cut from a mid-weight tweed, with a terrific colourway that my pictures don't do justice to at all--a wonderful complex basketweave with an overcheck of blueish-slate grey and fading bracken brown. This cloth is mid-weight, making this a wonderfully versatile, three season tweed. The jacket has three button cuffs, and a single centre vent. It's in excellent condition.

The trousers are also beautifully cut, and are, of course, flat front, with a ticket pocket concealed flat against the waistband. They are cuffed.

This suit was built in 1982--although it might have been made yesterday. It's in excellent condition, but with two small flaws: There is a small tension tear at the corner of one of the back pockets of the trousers. Given its location, this would be a very easy fix for your local tailor, but it does need attention if the trousers are to be worn. And there are some minor pen marks on the lining by one of the interior pockets, as shown.

A tweed, sack suit from a prominent regional trad. tailor? Given the flaw, how about just $75 > 70, boxed and shipped in CONUS, OR OFFER? Please note that the jacket alone is worth this..... so securing a complete tweed suit at this price is a steal!
