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.

    I’m selling a lovely vintage Brooks Brothers 346 “feathertweed” 3-2 sack sport coat in a houndstooth pattern.

    - The vintage 346 are of a higher standard than today's outlet-only 346 branded items.

    An excellent low-cost addition to a wardrobe with a classic pattern.

    Asking: $55 SHIPPED (worldwide w/tracking)



    Features:

    Made in the USA
    3 roll to 2 button stance
    Dartless front
    Single vent
    Soft shoulders
    Quarter-lined
    100% wool

    The jacket is in excellent condition save for on small near the right sleeve buttons (See picture). With the small size as well as the color and pattern of the material it is very hard to notice this flaw. The picture is zoomed in so you can see the nature of the flaw.


    Measurements: (Tagged a 42R)

    Chest (armpit to armpit): 22”
    Shoulders (seam to seam): 18”
    Sleeves: 24” (1” to let out).
    Length (bottom of collar): 30”

    Please PM with any questions you might have.

    346 is the street address of the flagship store in NYC. So until the store was sold the first time to Marks and Spencer, and maybe for some time after, it was the label below the main line stuff. Still pretty nice.

    No relation whatsoever with the low-quality stuff now.
