Debating weather to contact J Press and find out if I can get a pair of pants to match the fabric puzzled.gif Pretty nice condition, 1 button, peak lapel, pretty slim fitting, center vent. Couldnt let it sit there for $3!!!

I saw the pic before I read the post and got excited because I need a tux and would have paid for it ASAP had it been my size. Sucks there's no pants to be found.

If anyone finds a 40R one button peak lapel vented tux with 34x34 (or alterable) pants hit me up. I'll pay good money.

Are you bragging about something?

post #42933 of 134365

No, just providing a visual example of the tartan tuxedo pants suggested to Brianpore.

I like it.

 

I read this blog often, and I am a fan. I thought maybe that was you, and you were bragging about some of the finds, particularly the tartan etc.

Actually, that's a suitable wardrobe, no? Giuseppe is the author of an affordable wardrobe, and I don't know if he is a member of the forum. I'm just a fan of his blog and remembered he had some entries on matching an orphaned dinner jacket with tartan pants.

Correct, and I am neither person, but a reader of both.

A few recent pickups.  The first two are really great quality custom-made SC's.  My research indicates that the maker has been in the business a long time, and the garments are pretty expensive.  They're fully canvassed, have surgeon's cuffs, lots of pick stitching, and great fabric.  

 

If the measurements work for anyone, send me a pm with an offer.  I need closet space, so I'm willing to give them away for pretty cheap.

 

First is a navy & blue windowpane. Side vented, and soft as hell.  Fits like a 46R-L

Measurements:

Sleeves - 25"

Length - 32.5"

Chest - 24.25"

Waist - 23.5"

Shoulders - 20.25"

Second is a solid navy. Center vented and soft as hell. I'm convinced it has at least some cashmere in it.  Also fits like a 46R-L

Measurements:

Sleeves - 25"

Length - 33"

Chest - 24.75"

Waist - 23.25

Shoulders - 21.5"

And then this is completely baller.  I'm pretty sure its Sartoria Partenopea, but am waiting to hear back on the label thread.  Not available at the moment.
