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.

    This jacket is two sizes too big for me, but it was too nice of a thing at way too nice of a price not to buy, so I'm selling it for what I paid plus shipping. That's $35 plus whatever USPS priority mail costs from Madison, WI to where you live. My paypal address is [email protected]

    It has a right interior tag for Gieves & Hawkes and a left tag for Chester Barrie, it's two-button, and the colors are maroon and a very brownish-green (which is represented pretty well in the photos). It's 100% wool, fully canvassed, and has a single vent and two sleeve buttons. It has a true 42" chest, 26 1/2" sleeve (measured seam to cuff), 30 1/2" back (seam to edge), and 40" waist (measured right between the buttons). I've looked it over really carefully and haven't been able to find any damage at all - it's really just in gorgeous shape.

    Can I request clarification on the sizing. You say it is a 42R, which implies a chest measurement of 44"-45". You also say that "It has a true 42" chest." Please clarify which is the measurement and the manner in which the measurement was taken. Thanks!

    Sure - I'm kind of new to measuring this stuff, and I wasn't sure what the standard measurements given are. I measured from armpit to armpit with the jacket buttoned and got 21". There's a 42R tag inside the left interior pocket, so maybe this jacket was taken in at the side seams.
