Four One remaning beautiful suit that no longer fits. All are marked as a size 40, but some may work for a 42. All are in great shape and none has been worn more than ten times. I am the only owner of all of these suits. Shipping in the CONUS is included. No overseas shipping.

4)Polo Blue Label. Made by Corneliani in Italy. Black dense crepe fabric. Beautiful pick stitching. This is my one hip, black suit, which I wore to gallery openings, etc., and places where a more traditional business suit was out of place. Three-button; single vent. Pants have double forward (English-style) pleats. $115 --> $105 --> $95 -- $90 --> $80

Measurements: Shoulders: 19.5"; Chest: 21.75"; Waist: 19.5"; BOC: 31"; Sleeves 23" + 2" folded under. Pants: Waist: 32.25"; Inseam: 30.75: Cuff: 1.5".

The following items are sold:

1)Hickey-Freeman Hand-Tailored Blue Pinstripe. This suit is from the top of Hickey’s line, which some have argued is equal to Oxxford in handwork and quality. I’m no expert, but it’s clearly a cut above most all suits, including Hickey’s mainline. Beautiful pick stitching throughout, hand-sewn buttonholes, boutonnière loupe, etc. Very fine, light-weight. Two-button, single vent jacket. Pants have double reverse pleats. $185 --> $175 --> $165. SOLD
