    REMAINING SUITS MOVED TO CONSOLIDATED THREAD

    I have five classic Spring/Summer suits to pass on today!

    As always, ALL PRICES INCLUDE SHIPPING IN CONUS. International inquiries are also welcome, with shipping at cost.

    Also as always, ALL OFFERS ARE VERY WELCOME!

    1) c. 41L Hand-tailored Brooks Brothers Glen Plaid suit

    SOLD

    This is absolutely beautiful, and perfect for Spring! Fully canvassed and fully lined, this lovely hand-tailored suit is cut from a classic smaller (and hence more versatile) glen plaid in traditional cream, grey, and black. It's a contemporary cut, with two button front, three button cuffs, and subtle darts; it also has a single center vent. The trousers are pleated and cuffed. This suit was Made in the USA, and is in excellent condition. If the trousers were just 1" longer this wouldn't be here!

    Asking just $75, or lower offer, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

    Tagged a 41L, this measures:


    Chest: 21 1/2
    Sleeve: 26 1/4 (+1)
    Shoulder: 18 1/2
    Length: 32 3/4

    Waist (laid flat): 17 7/8
    Inseam: 32 (+1) with 1 1/2 cuff.

    2) Lovely Burberry suit

    sold

    Burberry suits and jackets tend not to get much love here--and rightly so, perhaps, when they're at full retail. But this is nowhere close to full retail, and is an absolute steal! It's half-canvassed and fully lined, and has a single vent. The cloth is lovely; a mini-herringbone in mid-grey,with subtle pinstriping of lilac purple and leaf green running vertically throughout it. It was Made in the USA. The trousers are pleated and cuffed. It does, however, have some minor flaws: There's a tiny thread pull on the right lapel, and three more equally small and unnoticeable thread pulls by the shoulder. There's also a tiny moth nibble on the cuff, which won't be seen at all unless your co-workers are extremely observant ants. However, given these flaws i'm asking a very, very low

    $40, OR OFFER, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

    Measurements:


    Chest: 24 1/2
    Sleeve: 28 1/2 (+2)
    Shoulder: 20 1/2
    Length: 34

    Waist (laid flat): 21
    Inseam: 29 3/4 (+1 1/4) plus 1" cuff.

    3) GORGEOUS Hickey Freeman green Glen Plaid suit

    SOLD

    This suit is absolutely beautiful, and perfect for Spring and Summer! Cut from a beautiful Spring-green glen plaid--which my pictures do not do justice to at all--this suit is fully canvassed and fully lined. Made in the USA, it features a single center vent, and contemporary styling, having a two-button closure and darts. It features the embroidered "HF" logo on the interior lining, and is from the "Canterbury" range of suits. The trousers are pleated and cuffed, and have interior buttons for suspenders as well as belt loops. With the exception of two small dots inside the lining at the side (ink?) this suit is in excellent condition.

    Asking just $75, or offer, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

    Tagged a 46L, this measures:


    Chest: 23 3/4
    Sleeve: 25 1/4 (+2 1/2)
    Shoulder: 19 3/4
    Length: 32 1/2

    Waist (laid flat): 20 1/2
    Inseam: 29 1/4 (+1 1/4) with 1" cuff.

    4) Hickey Freeman cream suit.

    Half-canvassed and fully lined, this suit is perfect for Summer! Cut from 100% wool in cream, this is half-canvassed and fully lined, and features HF's signature lining. This is from the Boardroom collection, and was Made in the USA. The trousers are flat front and uncuffed. This does, however, have two flaws: There's a blemish on the lapel, as shown, and a smaller blemish on the right sleeve. These might or might not come out with dry cleaning, and so I'm asking just enough for the full suit to cover the cost of the trosuers, which being cut from cream wool will work well as odd summer trousers. :)

    So, asking just $25, or offer, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

    Measurements:

    Chest: 24
    Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+3)
    Shoulder: 19 1/2
    Length: 31 1/4

    Waist (laid flat): 21 1/4
    Inseam: 29 (+3 1/4)

    5) Brooks Brothers poplin suit.

    The Ivy summer classic! Half-canvassed and fully lined, his classic summer suit is in olive--the traditional alternative to tan! It features a single center vent, and a contemporary two-button, darted cut. The trousers are pleated and cuffed. It was, of course, Made in the USA, and is in excellent condition--apart from some dry-cleaner pinpricks near one pocket in the lining!

    Asking just $50, OR OFFER, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

    Measurements:


    Chest: 21 1/2
    Sleeve: 24 1/8 (+2)
    Shoulder: 19
    Length: 30 1/4

    Waist (laid flat): 17 1/4
    Inseam: 28 (+ 3/4) plus 1 1/2 cuff.
