1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    SEND ME OFFERS!! Closet cleaning time! As I’ve grown to wearing a suit every day, I’ve collected more suits than I can wear. I basically am devoted to a single brand these days, so these must go. (& the wife wants them gone fast!) For reference, I am 6’ & 175-180 lbs, so don’t pay much mind to the different tagged sizes. I’ll probably post over on the ‘bay as well. Send me all reasonable offers, I’d love to give a discount if buying more than one. All prices include lower 48 shipping. Please help me make some deals!


    1. Hugo Boss 40R Black Suit Jam/Sharp Striped - $250 --> $180 --> $150 now
      Here is a black Hugo Boss suit in the favorite Jam/Sharp fitted cut. (fitted: not boxy fat old guy, not hipster slim) Notch lapels, single vent, trim flat front pants, lightly structured shoulder. This suit has a strong look w a light white stripe. Don’t pay anywhere near retail for one when you can get a great deal here. I have probably worn this a total of 10 times since I bought it 5 years ago & it’s in great condition, 9/10. $250 --> $180 --> $150 now

      Measurements: chest = 19.5”, jacket waist = 18 1/8”, shoulders = 18”, BOC = 30”, sleeve = 25.5” + not much to let out, pant waist = 16.5”, rise = 12.25”, inseam = 33” + 1”, cuff width = 7 7/8”
    2. Staple Charcoal Suit 38R 40R Banana Republic Modern Fit - $125 --> $100 now --> SOLD!!!
      This is a rock solid 38R charcoal wool suit from BR. The modern fit is a nice looking silhouette with double vents, notched lapels & flat front pants. I’m not an expert, but this suit surprised me that it passed the pinch test – it appears to be half-canvassed. It is in excellent 9/10 condition with no visible wear, stains or imperfections. This suit is as good as the day I bought it 5 years ago & will last for many more years. Probably been worn 5-10 times The fabric has a nice 3-season weight that will be a great workhouse staple of your wardrobe. $125 --> $100 now --> SOLD!!!

      Measurements: chest = 20.5”, jacket waist = 18.75”, shoulders = 18”, BOC = 30 3/8”, sleeve = 25.75” + 1.5” to let out, pant waist = 16.75”, rise = 12”, inseam = 32.25” + 1.5”, cuff width = 8.75”
    3. Hickey Freeman 38R Navy Blue Suit - $200 --> $150 --> $125 now!

      Beautiful classic suit made in America by Hickey Freeman. The fabric has a great feel on the hand. This was purchased directly from the original HF factory in Rochester, NY. I would describe it as a light navy color, with a subtle plaid pattern. The pattern gives the fabric a great character up close, although the suit appears solid from a distance. The shoulders appear to be hand-sewn & are accompanied by notch lapels, single vent & classic double pleats in the pants. My father, a traditional suit connoisseur, insisted on buying me this 5 years ago. Frankly, I am not a fan of pleated pants, so this has probably only been worn 5 times & it shows. The suit is a 9.5/10 condition. If it hadn’t been altered, it would appear new. Somebody with a finer sense of tradition will love this American classic. $200 --> $150 --> $125 now!

      Measurements: chest = 20”, jacket waist = 18.75”, shoulders = 18 3/8”, BOC = 30.25”, sleeve = 26 5/8” + not much to let out, pant waist = 16.5”, rise = 13”, inseam = 32 1/8” + 1.5”, cuff width = 8.5”
    4. Suit Supply Gray 38L Lazio Suit - $225 --> $175 now!

      This is a very nicely constructed, half-canvassed Suit Supply Lazio suit in medium gray mid-weight herringbone wool. It has a wonderful, professional fitted silhouette with softly-structured Italian shoulders, notch lapels, working buttons double vents & flat front pants. I actually think that it fits more like a 40R in many other brands, given the shoulder measurement & jacket length. When I bought it new 3 years ago, I sent back a 40R in exchange for this size. This suit has been in & out of my regular suit rotation, staying in the closet during cooler months here in NY. The jacket is 9/10 condition. I recently had a tailor mend a snag at the corner of the right rear pocket – it’s invisible without very close inspection. The only other flaw are markings in the seat shown in the picture … after wearing the suit for a few months, I decided I needed to let the waist out an inch or so. The previous seam is visible in the fabric. I have never had anyone comment on this, as I think the herringbone pattern obscures it very well & I usually wear my jacket when clients are in the office. Nonetheless, this is a very nice suit with plenty of wear left in it. $225 --> $175 now!

      Measurements: chest = 20.5”, jacket waist = 18”, shoulders = 18”, BOC = 30 7/8”, sleeve = 25.5” + 1.25” to let out, pant waist = 17”, rise = 12.75”, inseam = 31.75 + 2”, cuff width = 8” http://us.suitsupply.com/en_US/suits/lazio-grey-plain/P3369.htmlHickey Freeman 38R Navy Blue Suit - $200
