    Belvest double breasted tux. Offered as a 38S it's actually 38R. Starting bid is $1.00. Could be a good score for a barrel.

    Thanks for the tip, but the 36" waist is a deal breaker. Fixed.

    $215+ for a used cotton suit seems pretty pricey to me.

    Thanks for the restraining advice Doc. I rush in too quick sometimes.
    The $500 selling bid would also have saved me.

    Okay, someone tell me what's wrong with this?

    I think they stopped using that tag in the 70s and more importantly it's a mtm so it maybe a weird size.

    I tried one of the LE half-canvassed coats when the price first dropped to $79. The fit, for me, was extremely awkward, and so I returned it. Maybe someone else will have better luck.

    Also, the sizing on the tailored fit is still fairly generous. I size up to 40 in Black Label, for example, but a 38 in the LE was plenty large.
