Migrating an old B&S thread to the new forum for the first time. I have reproduced the previous listing text verbatim.

All 28 images uploaded to an album here:


Having just sold this identical suit - see here http://www.styleforum.net/t/524936/...-suit-solid-heather-grey-100-plain-weave-wool - I unexpectedly discovered that I had another in my stock! Therefore I can now offer this identical suit for sale to anyone who missed out on the previous listing :)

I am reproducing the listing text verbatim from the previous thread, however please note that the attached photos are all of the new suit for sale.

RLBL "Nigel" cut suits have proven to be very popular every time I've listed them on the forum - so much so, I wish I had even more than the solitary 38R I am listing here!!

Between July - October 2014 I sold 4 "Nigel" navy sharkskin suits on the forum, see the listing here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/399114/...36r-40r-40s-42r-solid-navy-sharkskin-100-wool.
Then I had two more identical suits earlier this year and they also sold fast: http://www.styleforum.net/t/507998/...its-38r-and-40r-solid-navy-sharkskin-100-wool.

For sale I present a wonderful NWT Spring/Summer Ralph Lauren Black Label suit in the popular size 38R. It's a single breasted notch lapel suit and made according to the specifications of the relatively new RLBL "Nigel" cut. The suit pants are also known as "Nigel" in RLBL terminology (see pictured tag). When compared to the more common "Anthony" cut I have noticed that the shoulders are less padded, and this is borne out by a slightly narrower shoulder measurement (a 38R Anthony would be 18" instead of 17.75"). The Nigel pants have a lower rise than the comparable Anthony pants of the same tagged size. As a result of this the waist measurement appears to be consistently larger than Anthony (since they're intended to be worn lower than the natural waist), but with side tab adjusters allowing for personal adjustment as desired.

Made in Italy by Caruso in a lightweight 100% plain weave wool - solid heather grey (a medium grey). A very breathable fabric indeed! Really a staple addition for your spring/summer business wardrobe. It's rare indeed to find quality solid grey suits for sale on the forum. Even rarer for the suits to be entirely appropriate for wear during the spring/summer months, given that the jacket is half-lined only. Combined with the lightweight nature of the fabric this should help to provide a fair degree of comfort during hot weather.

All the usual styling details found on RLBL suits - precise yet subtle pick stitching on the lapel edges, pocket edges and zip front. Pants are flat front with side tab adjusters and have slanted front pockets and two back pockets with button closure. Included is the RLBL pouch with spare buttons and matching thread, plus tape for use when hemming the pants.

Price is $1100 -> $1000 -> $950 -> $900 shipped CONUS or the EU
