NWT Brooks Brothers 1818 Madison Donegal Tweed 3 Roll 2 Sack Suit MSRP $998

New With Tags Brooks Brothers 1818 Madison Donegal Tweed Wool Suit. Three Roll Two, Single vent, Sack. Made in Italy. Trousers are flat front and unhemmed. All sleeves are unfinished, so they can be shortened or lengthened as needed. Sleeve buttons in bag. Retail $998. A three roll two is a three button suit which wears as a two button suit because the top button and button hole are both rolled under the lapel by design. Sack means that the front of the jacket is undarted. A 3 roll 2 sack with flat front trousers satisfies the main style cues of the American Trad / Ivy look from the 1960s.

Use measurements to predict fit. Google the terms "how to measure suit Andy" for a good tutorial. Compare measurements of these suits with a properly fitting suit from your closet. Madison is a full fit Brooks Brothers cut, but the Italian made suits are usually a bit slimmer than the American manufactured ones. Compare measurements.
