Will Ship To: Anywhere
Closet cleaning time! As I’ve grown to wearing a suit every day, I’ve collected more suits than I can wear. I basically am devoted to a single brand these days, so these must go. (& the wife wants them gone fast!) For reference, I am 6’ & 175-180 lbs, so don’t pay much mind to the different tagged sizes. I’ll probably post over on the ‘bay as well. Send me all reasonable offers, I’d love to give a discount if buying more than one. All prices include lower 48 shipping. Please help me make some deals!

Hickey Freeman 38R Navy Blue Suit - $200 --> $150 now!
Beautiful classic suit made in America by Hickey Freeman. The fabric has a great feel on the hand. This was purchased directly from the original HF factory in Rochester, NY. I would describe it as a light navy color, with a subtle plaid pattern. The pattern gives the fabric a great character up close, although the suit appears solid from a distance. The shoulders appear to be hand-sewn & are accompanied by notch lapels, single vent & classic double pleats in the pants. My father, a traditional suit connoisseur, insisted on buying me this 5 years ago. Frankly, I am not a fan of pleated pants, so this has probably only been worn 5 times & it shows. The suit is a 9.5/10 condition. If it hadn’t been altered, it would appear new. Somebody with a finer sense of tradition will love this American classic. $200 --> $150 now!

Suit Supply Gray 38L Lazio Suit - $225 --> $175 now!
This is a very nicely constructed, half-canvassed Suit Supply Lazio suit in medium gray mid-weight herringbone wool. It has a wonderful, professional fitted silhouette with softly-structured Italian shoulders, notch lapels, working buttons double vents & flat front pants. I actually think that it fits more like a 40R in many other brands, given the shoulder measurement & jacket length. When I bought it new 3 years ago, I sent back a 40R in exchange for this size. This suit has been in & out of my regular suit rotation, staying in the closet during cooler months here in NY. The jacket is 9/10 condition. I recently had a tailor mend a snag at the corner of the right rear pocket – it’s invisible without very close inspection. The only other flaw are markings in the seat shown in the picture … after wearing the suit for a few months, I decided I needed to let the waist out an inch or so. The previous seam is visible in the fabric. I have never had anyone comment on this, as I think the herringbone pattern obscures it very well & I usually wear my jacket when clients are in the office. Nonetheless, this is a very nice suit with plenty of wear left in it. $225 --> $175 now!
