    For sale I have a NWT RLPL suit in the SF grail size of 38R, more specifically 38R Drop 6 (hence the pants are tagged 32). This particular example is a 4x2 double breasted peak lapel suit from the RLPL "Custom Fit" line, a cut that is trimmer than standard RLPL (in-between RLPL and RLBL when comparing the measurements).

    Made in Italy by St. Andrews in a 3 season weight worsted 100% wool. Dark grey with a white rope stripe - similar to a chalkstripe - spaced 7/8" apart. All the styling details we've come to expect from RLPL - precise yet subtle pick stitching on the lapel edges, pocket edges and zip front. Pants are flat front with side tab adjusters and suspender buttons; slanted front pockets and two back pockets with button closure. Really beautiful sweeping lapels with an exquisite peak, and not too wide either.

    Vents, shoulders and sleeves have all basting intact. Included is the RLPL pouch with all buttons and matching thread. Similarly for the pants there are belt loops and heel guards, should you wish these to be added when tailoring. The left sleeve could do with a professional pressing by your alterations tailor when finishing the pants and sleeves :)

    Full retail on this baby was £2,695, or approx. $4,300.

    • "Drake" cut
    • 3 season weight worsted
    • Double breasted peak lapel

    • P2P 20"
    • Waist 18.75"

    Pants Measurements (tagged 32")

    Not a fan of 4x2 but beautiful nonetheless. Good luck with your sale.
