Made in Italy for Arthur & Fox of Paris!

c. 43, 44. Measurements:

Chest: 22 1/4
Sleeve: 25 1/8 (+1 1/2)
Shoulder: 19 1/4
Length: 30

Waist: 18 1/4 (+1)
Inseam: 30 1/2 (+1 1/2)

Despite their very English name Arthur & Fox are very much a French clothiers, located on the Boulevard Saint Germain in Paris. Like many upper-tier French clothiers they have an on-going love affair with both English and Italian tailoring, and their suits often have elements of both--a very English look, but with a softer Italian cut.

This suit is a wonderful example of their approach! With its three button front, twin vent, and functional ticket pocket this beautiful Glen Plaid suit is clearly inspired by traditional English country wear. But this was Made in Italy--and the cut is far less severe than anything that would be made in Savile Row, with a beautifully fluid lapel roll, more natural shoulders, and the elegant drape that only a cloth that includes cashmere (here, 5% with the rest being super-soft wool) can achieve.

The jacket is half-canvassed and fully lined, and has four button cuffs with faux buttonholes. The trousers are pleated and cuffed.

This suit is in excellent condition, although it does have two very small blemishes. First, there is a very faint mark at the base of the lapel on the left-hand side. This is mainly on the underside, and, in any case, I only found this when taking close-up pictures from about 1" away--and even then had to check to make sure it wasn't a trick of the light! So, this won't be seen when worn. Second, there is a tiny snag hole on the inner upper thigh near the seam. This would be a very easy repair--or else could simply be ignored--and will never be seen when worn--I only found it as I was measuring the inseam!

Given these two minor mars, how about $75, or offer, boxed, shipped, and insured in the USA, for this wonderfully elegant --and rare!--cashmere and wool suit?

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
