Closet Cleaning -- RLPL 3 piece, Armani, Mani -- all 40 short

Cleaning out the closet and have some things I thought I'd post up here before trying out eBay. More pics available for anyone who is interested. Just send me a PM. Also have some more stuff that I will add in the next couple of days. All jackets are tagged 40 short.

First item is a chocolate brown 3 piece from Ralph Lauren Purple Label. Three to two, side vents, side tabs on pants ... everything you've come to expect from Ralph at this level. This suit has been worn exactly 3 times over a period of two years. Pit to Pit is about 20in, sleeve length is 24 inches shoulder seam to cuff. Pants are 33 inch waist with 29in inseam. The outseam is 40 inches. Working buttonholes on cuff. More pics, measurements available. I'll open up with $300 shipped in the US.

The suit:

The cuff:

The vest:

Next up is a really nice Mani / Giorgio Armani three button jacket in a soft grey. Feels like a sweater. No vents. Original owner -- purchased four years ago at Saks in Washington, DC. Worn a handful of times. Like new condition. I'll go with $50 shipped. Measurements are 19" pit to pit, 24" shoulder to sleeve.

The jacket:

The fabric:

Last item is a "vintage" Giorgio Armani Collezioni jacket I purchased new for $900 at Neiman Marcus in Washington back in 1998. I've worn it a dozen times or so over the years. This jacket does have some history -- I wore it to the rehearsal dinner for my wedding, which was held at the Beverly Hills Hotel. After the dinner, before heading out on the town, I ran into Hugh Hefner (literally) in the Polo Lounge at the hotel. So this jacket has had a brush with greatness, I suppose.
I'll go with $65 shipped. Really interesting fabric. Two buttons, no vents.

The jacket:

Any questions, PM me or post 'em here. Like I said above, more / higher quality pics available. I'm in the DC area for those who are interested in local a local pickup.



Edited at 3:58pm ET on 10/22 to improve photo quality, added outseam measurement.
