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.

    I like this jacket, but don't wear DB's enough, so considering letting it go. It's a 51/49 cotton/linen mix, nice texture, very slightly slubby. Mid blue.

    Price includes paypal fees, priority shipping within CONUS. No returns so ask questions; I'm happy to answer.

    Please have good buyer/seller feedback or be active in threads (or if you have good eBay feedback, I can work with that)

    Here are some photos of me wearing it. I've worn it maybe 8 times. It is in excellent condition.

    A sense of the texture which is quite nice.

    I prefer to sell to members with good B&S feedback or good eBay feedback, or those who are active in discussion threads.

    Tagged 38R (IT 48), the rough measurements are approx...(laying it flat)

    18.25 inch front, shoulder seam to seam
    20.25 inch chest PtP
    24.25 inch sleeve, shoulder seam to cuff (working button holes)
    18.25 inches waist
    29.25 inches length BOC

    Not exactly suit supply's measurements, but I suspect this is no different from other versions of this cut.

    Note, I had a bit of tailoring done to it by a very good tailor: (a) the waist was taken in, (b) the back cleaned up under the collar, and (c) added some padding to the shoulder (it felt completely unstructured). You could have your tailor remove the padding, but it's still fairly natural as is. It's slim fitting.

    Fully lined in silver/gray cupro, dual vent. Beautiful wide lapels.

    PM if you have any questions.

    While this is a cotton/linen blend, it's lined and not inappropriate for autumn.

    What's the size of upper waist?
    I'm also interested in your Burberry Tan jacket, may I ask how tall are you?

    I'm not sure what you mean by "upper waist". Can you clarify?

    The waist measurement was taken at the middle button, seam to seam. I had it taken in 0.5 inches, so really just a touch to give it a bit more shape. It could be let out I suppose, though tricky with cotton. You might get away with it with this slightly slubby weave, but I can't guarantee you won't see the stitching marks. So, if measurements seem too narrow, then I wouldn't push it. But it's not aggressively slimmed by any means.

    I'm 6 feet tall, though I would go more by the length measurement than by my height. The ideal length of a coat is very subjective and is not just a factor of height, but of where your waist is and your arm length. Go with the length of your ideal jacket in your closet as a gauge.

    I hope that helps (I tend to be wordy!).

    Does the size 48IT mean suitsupply size 48 regular ?

    I have one suitsupply Havana suit size 48R, and fits me well.

    The 48 regular measurements of suitsupply SOHO fit and Havana fit are the same, so I think this suit may fit me well.

    I lived in Taiwan, do you ship to Taiwan?

    It's a pity.

    Please let me know if you change your mind.
