I bought this off the forum a few months ago and decided its just not for me. Its sad because this is a really beautiful, well made suit. According to legend, this is from the first season of Black Fleece when things were like mega $$$ and made in Italy by Caruso.

Super soft charcoal grey wool with the "signature" striped modal lining. Jacket is fully lined and trousers are lined to the knee.
I had the belt loops removed and side adjuster tabs added out of the left over fabric from the trousers which have 2" cuffs.
Only two buttons on the jacket sleeves which is apparently how old Brooks Brothers jackets were. I thought it was kinda cool, but its an easy switch. Horn buttons naturally.
Fully canvased jacket with a beautiful roll on the lapel.

$610 shipped within the USA. Also open to trades. (38R suits, 10.5 US shoes)

Two buttons on the sleeve. Flapped patch pockets.


Kick-ass lining.


Made in Italy

Trousers with tabs.

Measurements:

Jacket:
Chest: 20"
Waist: 18.75"
Shoulders: 18"
BOC: 28"
Sleeves: 24.25" (1" to let out)

Trousers:
Waist: 32"
Rise: 11.5"
Inseam: 31"
Leg opening: 8" (2" cuffs)

Wish I had the money and need for a new suit. I would buy instantly. Being a Slim 38S would make this less of an out-there TB fit and just a short slim suit. If I stumble on $600 I'll let you know!

@Doomtop, if you want to list something, go for it, but don't hijack this guy's thread.

P.s. That suit is beautiful. If I had the $600 I would be all over it...

Looks great, not a fan of the jacket's pockets though. Good luck
