Burberry Prorsum Wool-Cotton blend suit, 48R
Shipping to US only, no exceptions.
This suit is, without a doubt, the single nicest piece of clothing I’ve ever owned, but it is just too small for me, so I have to pass it on.
A recent-season Burberry Prorsum dark grey / charcoal suit in a tightly woven wool-cotton (70/30) blend that’s relatively heavy and relatively stiff (feels more like thick cotton than wool), with a nice weight when worn and very little give or flexibility. Both the design and construction are immaculate throughout, with razor-sharp lapels, front flap pockets that can be tucked into welt pockets, lightly padded shoulders, dual back vents (connected on the interior with a satin strip), and a very slim cut that tapers from chest to waist. The pants have two elastic cinches on the sides, and a similarly slim cut
Condition is 9/10…I bought it used, but I haven’t worn it more than just to try it on, and I see no signs of wear except for the slightest fading on the back of the collar. Of note, the pants were tailored to the current inseam, and a couple stitches have detached on the hem that was made, but these are invisible from the outside and would be easy to fix.
Please see the Mr. Porter links below for professional photos of a very similar suit in a different fabric. As far as I can tell, the pattern and construction of this suit is nearly identical, except for the lack of elastic side tabs on the current season trousers.
