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.

    Bought this off Chorse123 when he was selling the lot of sportcoats. Its a NWT beautiful jacket I just thought the contrast in the colours would be more substantial, and as such it doesn't match with the outfit I wanted to pair it with. I want to recoup what I paid so $300 shipped anywhere in NA.

    It fits slightly large for a 38R so I would peg it more like a 39R.

    This is a spectacular jacket guys. Someone should snag it asap. FYI, the measurements I had were: Shoulder: 19" Chest: 42" Waist: 39.5" Length from bottom of collar: 30.5" Sleeve: 25" So yeah, this would probably fit a 39R or 40R well. EDIT - if they were my measurements I'd probably buy it back!

    I can't believe no one has bought this. It's a truly stunning jacket and if the measurements worked for me I would definitely buy it. The Zegna jackets I kept from that sale are probably my favorites. Extremely comfortable and well made from excellent material. Off the rack at Saks or Bergdorf this would be a $1800+ jacket, I think.

    I can answer that! Full canvas--very nicely made, too.
