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.

    34" waist for a 38R seems kinda weird. That's a lot to have to take in for a normal ~6" drop.

    i think that's because these pants measure to 34" circumference. i wear size 32 pants and most of them measure 33.5" in circumference on the outside. also my waist is actually 33" even though i'm a "size 32". so you might have to have 1/2 taken in if you are a size 32.

    Looks great and price is good!

    You have my size as well....tempting, just not sure if I'd ever wear a cord suit.


    Wear them as separates or as a suit. Just be sure to have jacket and trousers cleaned together.

    Exactly. Most size 32 will not measure to a 32" circumference on the outside of the pant. They are just a tiny bit loose for me in the waist (everything else is nice and trim) but a belt fixes that. A tailor could easily take them in a little, but it didn't seem worth the cost for me.


    I now have a size EU54 in the green suit with patch pockets. I can post measurements for that but not until tomorrow at the earliest since I don't have it with me.

    If anyone is interested, I can get a 52 in a wide wale light tan/beige. I'm still hunting for a few other sizes so let me know if you want anything.

    I picked up a sort of biscuit tan thin wale cord for myself. Will try to post pictures later. Fits much like the green one but is a little more velvet looking, though not much.

    I haven't seen any 40 reg yet, and haven't seen more than one or two in brown. There seem to be other makers mixed in, but the confitalia ones are softer and have a less padded structure.

    No chance of finding small or long sizes.

    while hell will prob freeze over first, let me know if you find a 56 EU. With them being a slim fit, i doubt my shoulders would fit into a 54. Thanx.

    There's probably a 50/50 chance I can find the green suit in a 56R, but it may not have patch pockets.

    I'll try to get that measurement for you.

    If anyone is interested, I can get:

    Size 39/49 in green with flapped pockets and single reverse pleat trousers
    Size 41/51 in green with flapped pockets and single reverse pleat trousers
    Size 41/51 in navy with flapped pockets and single reverse pleat trousers

    Still hunting for the rest of them, guys.
