Let's start the bidding... now.
This auction is for a grey Ring Jacket Ice Twist Wool/Silk Core 184 Suit. (https://thearmoury.com/product/ring-jacket-re024s09-wool-silk-ice-twist-184-suit?Color=Grey)
Ring Jacket are recognized as one of the finest Japanese ready-to-wear producers today. Since 1954, they have built a reputation for creating quality garments blending Japanese, British and American sensibilities with a southern Italian flair. They are one of the few producers who can say their production is completely Japanese, often collaborating with Japanese mills to create unique and distinctive cloths not available anywhere else. Their garments deliver incredible style and quality at an extremely reasonable price. Since 1957, their Kaizuka-City, Osaka, factory has served as their base of operations and continues to grow, joined by a new factory in 1990 at Kuzumi town, Oita. Over the 1960s, Ring Jacket developed a reputation as a small, but unique manufacturer, bringing a refined look to comfortable ready-to-wear pieces. Since then, Ring Jacket has developed a unique sewing style they can truly call their own.
Ring Jacket's "184" suit is a soft garment all around. It has a rounded shoulder and large sleevehead with a slightly shorter body and higher notch lapels. It's our go-to suit model for a slim, classic look. This model is made up in an "Ice Twist" Wool/Silk Blend that is breathable and cool.
Includes flat front trousers to match. We have sizes 44-54 (EU) available.
Let's start the bidding at $775. The minimum increment on a bid will be $25. Please announce bids on this thread. If you wish to be anonymous, you may PM me, and I will proxy the bid for you.
Important note: The bidding will not end if there has been a bid in the last 10 minutes, regardless of time. So, for example, if there is a bid at 2:59 Monday morning, the bidding will go on until 3:09, and if there is a bid before or at that time, the bidding will continue. Essentially, sniping is not going to be effective. It's for charity, y'all.
Here are some pictures to make you all weep and bid generously and often:
If that is a 34r US, then you are in luck. That would translate into a 44 EU, and Ring jacket runs a bit small. I am usually a straight up 40, and I bought a Ring jacket suit in size 50, and had to sell it because it was too small.
