    New job requires suits way less often than in the past, so I'm paring down the closet. The below are all in great to perfect condition. Keep in mind that all of them (except the NWT Belvest) have working button cuffs. For general reference, I am 5'11, somewhat slim at about 165 lbs depending on the day.

    Prices include CONUS shipping. Happy to make deals on combined purchases.

    1) Paul Stuart suit, Blue-grayish with subtle plaid. Tagged size 38R.
    100% wool. Year-round weight. Double vented jacket, 2 button stance, ticket pocket, cool blue lining, working button cuffs, flat front pants with side button adjusters currently hemmed with 2" cuffs.
    This is a great slim fit with semi-structured shoulders that I rarely wore because it was just too slim for me, particularly in the shoulders ( I am best fit for a 38-40 with softer shoulders). Made in Canada (I believe by Samuelsohn). Internal tag marked "Alton sample suit".
    Jacket measurements: Chest: 20", Shoulders: 17.5", Waist: 18.5", Length from bottom of collar: 31", Sleeve: 25.25"
    Pants measurements: Waist: 16", Rise: 13", Thigh: 12", Knee: 10", Leg opening: 9", Inseam length: 30.5" with 2" cuffs
    (Note: Rise measurements taken from front top waist down to the natural "seat" - taking to the crotch seams would cut off a few " in that measurement - pants actually slim and are not as baggy as indicated by the Rise.)
    $280

    2) SOLD Ralph Lauren Black Label RLBL suit. Dark navy pinstripe. Tagged size 40R drop 7
    100% wool. Year-round weight. Double vented jacket, 2 button stance, working button cuffs, flat front pants with side adjusters.
    Jacket measurements: Chest: 21", Shoulders: 18", Waist: 19.5", Length from bottom of collar: 30", Sleeve: 25"

    (Note: Rise measurements taken from front top waist down to the natural "seat" - taking to the crotch seams would cut off a few " in that measurement - pants actually slim and are not as baggy as indicated by the Rise.)

    Kind of a brownish donegal/ birdseye. NOT tweed like - very soft wool would almost guess there's a hint of cashmere in it if not for the tag.

    Jacket measurements: Chest: 21.5", Shoulders: 18.25", Waist: 20", Length from bottom of collar: 30.75", Sleeve: 25.25"

    I have suit #4, the Belvest for Wilkes Bashford, and it's stunning. I get tons of compliments on it.
