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.

    Hi lookers,
    It's a recent 1818 Fitzgerald Dark Grey Glen Plaid Wool Suit with a blue windowpane overlay - fantastic pattern. I just wish I could have found a suit like this in my size. The trouser and suit tags are white(the most recent style tags AFAIK). It's a two button, center vented coat; made in Italy and retails for the typical BB 1818 suit price($998). It's tagged as a 42R. The trousers are flat front without turn-ups.

    Pit-Pit: 22"
    Shoulder-Shoulder: 18 3/8"
    Sleeves: 26.5"
    BoC: 30.5"

    Waist: 36"
    Inseam: 33"

    The suit is basically new and has only been worn 2x - once for a 3h meeting and another time for 1h. And the obligatory wear when trying it on upon arrival. It came basted with white threads and all. I normally wear 42L so I thought this would work, but it was too short in length and buttoning point too high so I'm selling it. It has been suppressed 1" in the waist. In addition, my grandfather(who was a master tailor back in the day) lengthened the sleeves by an 1" or so by taking fabric from the trousers when they were still unhemmed so don't be surprised if you see stitching on the interior of the sleeve. It looks great - I just wish it had actually fit me better.

    Please go to my profile to see trader feedback - some reason mine doesn't show - I have several transactions with good reviews on both sides. I will only take Paypal. $20 will cover freight as well.
