Final price drop - NWT Battistoni suit

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Battistoni moved to new consolidation thread.

1. NWT Battistoni 3 button S150s spring/summer suit in a beige / taupe plaid with a faint overcheck, 52L (US 42L), drop 7, dual vent, purchased from Barneys
It's a really beautiful suit - great fabric, soft tailoring, high arm holes, perfect for spring and summer. Basted sleeves for working button holes, tailor's thread on the shoulders and pockets. Was probably somewhere around $3,000RP.

  • Length (bottom of collar) - 32.75"
  • Sleeves - 26.25"
  • Shoulders - 19.5"
  • Chest - 23" (my measurements here may be a little off, but it's a relatively consistent US 42 jacket)
  • Waist (pants are double pleated) - 36" (my measurement, despite the drop 7 marking on the label)

Original thread:

Gentlemen - long-time lurker, more recent member and first-time seller. I have a few NWT or NWOT items for sale all of which were originally intended for my own wardrobe, but which were never tailored - mostly due to sizing misses - a hazard of online shopping (you will notice a rather narrow range of sizes - 40/42/44 suits / jackets). Each has been stored on suit / jacket hangers. I'm not a regular seller of goods either here or on Ebay and do not intend for this to become a regular occurrence, but I have been prompted to sell 1) to reclaim some coveted storage space (a rarity for a NYC resident), 2) due to increasingly vociferous threats from my better half, and, perhaps most importantly, 3) as a result of a very recent change in career trajectory and an attendant reduction in my need for dressy clothes. I am also creating a second thread with shoes (Grenson for PS, AE), ties (Borrelli, T&A, Brioni) and Woodlore shoe trees.

In terms of pricing, I'm trying not to be piggish - I did a little forum research to try to determine a fair price, but I'd honestly like for these pieces to find a good home where they will be used, so would appreciate feedback on the pricing if forum regulars find it unrealistic. I will accept Paypal (that said, until now my account has only ever disbursed funds, never received them, so you might need to bear with me while I figure out how to reverse directions) and the prices include shipping in the CONUS. International shipping could certainly be arranged, but I'd need to do a little work to figure out how much more to charge for shipping. I'll also give a good faith and reasonable guarantee (less shipping costs) if things don't work out - just as long as the goods are returned in the same condition.

Please PM or reply with any questions. Thanks in advance for looking.

PS - if any potential purchasers are concerned about my transactional bona fides, please PM me and I would be happy to share my Ebay feedback as a purchaser (including purchases from many of the regulars on this forum). I know it isn't the same as being a seller, but hopefully it will put minds at ease.

2. NWT Oxxford 2 button S140s beige / brown jacket with a multi checks, 42L, dual vent, purchased from Saks. Fall / winter 2007/08 model.
Gorgeous jacket. I believe the fabric is s140 or s150 (the tag says Range 5 - based on my existing Oxxford suits - range 3 = s120s and Range 4 = s130s, so I surmise Range 5 = s140/150). Gibbons model, beautiful construction. Again, basted sleeves for working button holes / tailor's thread on the shoulders, etc. Original RP was $2995 at Saks. SOLD

  • Length (bottom of collar) - 33.25"
  • Sleeves - 26.5"
  • Shoulders - 19.75"
  • Chest - 23"

3. NWT Isaia 3-roll-2 button jacket in houndstooth pattern (primary colors – beige, blue). Marked 54S drop 8, but given Isaia’s sizing, is probably a little closer to a 42-43R. Dual vent. Purchased from Neiman Marcus.Lovely, classic odd jacket in s110 wool, excellent construction. Stewart G model. Basted sleeves for working button holes, tailor’s thread, etc. Original RP was probably somewhere around $2000. SOLD

  • Length (bottom of collar) – 30.75"
  • Sleeves – 25.5"
  • Shoulders – 19.5"
  • Chest – 23.5"

4. NWOT / Barely Worn Castangia 3 button jacket in grey blue / slate muted glen plaid. Size isn’t marked inside, but if I recall it is a 50R (US 40R – measurements would suggest the same). Center vent. Unlined, but with beautifully finished seams; superb construction as one would expect from Castangia. Sleeve buttons are sewn on, but could easily be altered to have working button holes. Wool, but not sure what grade – it has a soft but heavier, flannelized hand. It’s a lovely jacket in an interesting color, but is too small for me. No idea what retail on this was - purchased from a very reputable Ebay seller who represented that the jacket was NWOT. I can attest that I have not altered it or worn it (it doesn't fit me). SOLD

[b]5. NWOT Boglioli 3 button jacket in a lightweight navy blue bird’s eye fabric, 52R (US 42R). Dual vent. Relatively trim fitting. Purchased from Bergdorf Goodman. Excellent year round jacket in a versatile color / pattern. Has gold lining, ticket pocket, soft construction. I believe that original retail was $900. SOLD

Thanks again for looking.

That's a great introductory paragraph. Best of luck in your sales.

Also, there is plenty more to come if people have interest (hardly worn Kiton and T&A dress shirts, brand new ties (Barneys and others), barely worn EG, Moreschi (Norwegian welt) and other shoes, NWT HF and BB sweaters - if any of those are of interest, please let me know and I'll go to work putting together another thread).

I'm sure I speak for many in saying yes, definite interest!

Plus any guy that can use the word vociferous appropriately in a Buy/Sell thread, is worth reading for the pure entertainment value of the post alone.

The Oxxford has now been sold. Final price drop on the Battistoni ($500 or make me a reasonable offer) - it's a beautiful spring suit.

I like #1, but I wear a 42R. Is it possible for a tailor to turn a 42L into a 42R?
