For sale I have a Hickey Freeman suit sized 40R. This suit is made of 100% medium weight worsted wool in very dark gray/soft black (hard for me to tell, exactly) with medium gray subtle chalkstripes. The suit is a classic single breasted 2-button model with flap pockets, and pants which feature double-pleats and cuffs. Canvassed construction, of course. Suit is in excellent shape. Fabric is pristine with no real wear that I could discern, and I was unable to find any sort of tear or stain or hole on either the pants or the jacket. I would like $95 shipped for this suit within the US. PM me with any questions, or if you would like to purchase it. Price is now $85 shipped. Measurements are as follows: Chest: 44" Shoulders: 19" Sleeves: 24" from shoulder seam to end of sleeve Length: 30.5" from under collar to bottom of jacket Inseam: 30" with about an inch to let out, 3" if cuffs are dropped Outseam: 41" Waist: 33.5" with about 2" to let out

Sorry DD, did not see your reply. Pants are lined to the knee.

Price is now $85 shipped in the US, and I'm probably going to put this on ebay Sunday night if I get no offers.
