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.

    This essential piece of the sartorial puzzle was designed for and made by--well, in conjunction with an old Brooklyn tailor--a guy who soon went on to work on suits at Duncan Quinn. It shows: the fit, the materials, the look--all are perfect. I hope my admittedly terrible photos give some indication of that. You'll note that I've also taken a photo of the "label": mine was the fourth of five black sport coats that he designer and tailor created; each was made to the specifications of the individual buyer.

    Details:
    -Italian wool (not a summer jacket, but I wear well into the spring)
    -slight sheen to fabric
    -two-button front enclosure
    -center-back vent

    The fit is the right kind of modern: the silhouette is slim but still structured (normal level of padding at shoulder); the length is a touch shorter than your average suit jacket, but that's an advantage if you pair this with more a tapered jean. Measurements below:

    Pit to Pit: 18.25"
    Shoulder: 16.25"
    Length (hem to collar): 28"

    I accidentally put a tear into the jacket at about the wrist-level of the right arm; I've included a photo of the patch-up my tailor did (it looks like a very small cross when examined closely).

    I've loved this blazer for four years--only giving it up b/c I couldn't resist splurging on a Kris Van Assche blazer.

    $75, shipped.

    FYI: I'm 6'0" but a size 34 now, having lost 10-12 pounds (from 148 to 137) since the jacket was made for me, hence why it may appear less form-fitting in the pics than it is likely to be on you.

    Whoever is wearing it in your fit pic. I assume it's you...? Hard to tell from the angle, but it looks like it may be 3-4 in. too short for you.
