    ^^^^^No, I pass on hundreds of Tom James a week. That style of pinstripe isn't doing it any favors either.

    Thanks! I thought the same but wasn't sure as it seemed like a lot of material and really tight.

    I managed to do this a couple of times recently (didn't pick up for myself, but was simply pairing them as they belong together). Spoke to the available "sales girls" to let them know "hey, these actually pair up, so you probably want to reprice them together, as they're a set and you'll sell them easier". They either couldn't be bothered, or thought I was trying to get pants thrown in with the jacket for myself. Those were not the words that came out of my mouth, even remotely.

    Sorry, I should have added that. Though again, if he hadn't said that suit was from 2014, I would have guessed 1999 based on that stripe.

    not going to crush you on price, but it wasn't dirt cheap either.

    Doesn't Oxxford make some Tom James like the royal collection? The suit actually looks pretty good and my potato phone picture doesn't do it justice. It's Navy and not black with purple sewing cuff button hole etc. the date is stamped on the inside tag as 2014. Anyhow left it. Found some other fun stuff I'll throw up later

    nope. TJ owns Oxxford, and theres speculation the venttura line is made in the oxxford shop...but ive heard conflicting reports. But thats just the Ventura line... very nice stuff. THe royal collection is nice as well, but more comparable to hickey/southwick probably.
