So, I lost a lot of weight, and the number of suits that no longer fit me are piling up in my closet. Specifically, my Brooks Brothers fare. For sale are a BB 1818 Madison Tuxedo, 5 BB 1818 Fitzgerald suits, and a BB 1818 Regent suit, as well as a Polo Ralph Lauren Blue Label suit. Each of these was purchased new directly from a BB, non-outlet store, and has been worn only by me.

Apologies in advance for the quality of the pictures. I've only included a single shot of each. If you are interested in any specific one, please PM me, and I will provide additional pictures. Basic details for each piece below.

I haven't heard back from you and it's been 3 days. Is the PRL suit still available?
