**EDIT: Price lowered to $80 shipped in the US**


Hey guys,

I'll post pics later but I just wanted to judge interest first.

I have for sale a mint condition sz 39R (could also work for 38R, possibly a slim 40R), check measurements) Brooks Bros 3-season wool suit, dark charcoal with gray chalkstripe. 3-button rolled to the second. Higher gorge, standard lapel, single vent, flat front pants w/ buttons for braces. Made in US. This is from the regular line, not the 346 line.

Measurements are:

Chest: 41"
Length: 31.5"
Shoulders: 19"
Sleeves: 25.25"

Inseam: 32.5" with about 3" to let out or make cuffs with
Waist: 35", fully let out

I'll post pictures tonight or tomorrow, not sure of price, I was thinking around $100 as it's in mint condition.

Here are pictures as promised. Sorry for the random spots of light in the pics - they are not present in real life. Also, the lapel is rolling a bit funny, it just needs a light steaming to get it back in place. Price is $95 shipped in the US, or make me an offer.
On this sample of the fabric, the pink is not really there:

Thanks, yeah, it is a nice suit. The lapel got a little folded because it was too tightly hung in my closet (I have too many clothes, as 99% of this board can probably say as well) but when it gets steamed and rolls down to the 2nd button it looks really sharp. The fabric also has a real nice hand to it.

I want to buy this. I don't really have a use for it though. I'll sleep on it.

Price reduced again. I can't go much lower. This is a real fair price for a really sharp suit. I can picture it with a nice spread collar pink shirt and subtle patterned tie. I'm not lying when I say it's in mint condition. I'll give it a few more days and probably keep it then, because its in my size. Just PM me.

If the pants were closer to 30" in the waist I would be interested.
