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.

    This suit is a versatile mid-grey, in the double-breasted style that is becoming increasingly popular again. It is from my own wardrobe, having been worn at most a handful of times. It is in perfect condition, with no rips, holes, stains, marks, etc. I am selling it because I simply don't get enough opportunities to wear it. The styling is redolent of the Golden Age of men's clothing, from the 30s feel to the Tautz-esque near-horizontal lapels, to the beautiful silk it is made from and to the overall cut & silhouette.

    Please look through all the photos, read the style details and check the measurements below for more information. Do get in touch with any questions, and to purchase. Paypal payment only please.


    • Domenico Spano suit
    • Mid-grey silk
    • Made in USA
    • Tagged 38S, but has been tailored (see measurements below)
    • Wonderful detailing throughout (see photos)


    • Double-Breasted 6x2
    • Tautz-esque peak lapels
    • Ticket pocket
    • 4 sleeve buttons (non-functional, so further alteration is easy)


    • Zip fly
    • Double-pleats
    • Braces buttons
    • Side-adjusters
    • Turn-ups/Cuffs

    Tagged "Stock 38S", but has been tailored post-purchase to fit me
    I would suggest it would now fit a slimmer 38S, or possibly even a 36S, but you should compare the measurements below for more details.


    • shoulder-seam to shoulder-seam: 17.75"
    • chest circumference: 39"
    • waist circumference: 36"
    • length from base of collar: 29.5"
    • crown-cuff sleeve length: 23.75" (+1.25" to let down if needed)


    • waist circumference: 30" (+2.5" to let out if needed)
    • inside leg: 28.75" (can be let down if needed by approximately double the cuff height; see below for that measurement)
    • leg opening at cuff: 9.25", for circumference of 18.5"
    • turn-up/cuff height: 1.75"
    • knee opening (approx): 11" (measured across at about 9" down from top of leg)

    If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Thank you!
