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.

    GRAIL! STUNNING PAUL STUART TWEEDY CASHMERE-BLEND SUIT!

    [​IMG]

    Featuring all the Anglophile details you could want!

    I don't use the term "Grail" lightly, but this suit certainly qualifies--it's STUNNING! The cloth was woven in Great Britain, and is a blend of cashmere and wool (2% and 98% respectively), giving it a beautiful hand and drape. The colourway and pattering are gorgeous; a very versatile light brown and cream, with alternating bands of miniature herringbone and nailhead that make the cloth very complex, but which are both so subtle that the effect is almost unnoticeable unless you look at the cloth closely.

    The cut of the jacket and trousers does the cloth full justice. Featuring peak lapels, the jacket is also blessed with a fully functional ticket pocket, twin vents, and four button cuffs. It is very subtly darted, and has a contemporary two button front. It is fully lined, and fully canvassed. All of the interior pockets features very neat button and elastic closures, which is a very nice and useful detail. The trousers have side adjusters and belt loops; they are also cuffed.

    The cloth was, as noted, woven in Great Britain; the suit was made in Canada.

    It is in absolutely excellent condition, having been barely worn--I have its provenance, and this was worn exceedingly sparingly and with care. The only flaw--if it could even be called that--is that it has four stitches in the lining of the lining of the trousers, used to fix a missed stitch that it came with. I suspect that you might not have noticed this, but I mention it for my benefit more than yours! :)

    Asking just $185, boxed, shipped, and insured in CONUS for this beauty, with lower offers being very welcome. International inquiries are also welcome, with Priority tracked shipping at cost.

    Tagged a 43L, this measures:

    Chest: 22
    Sleeve: 27 (+1 1/2)
    Shoulder: 19
    Length: 32 1/2

    Waist laid flat: 17 1/2
    Inseam: 32 1/8 (+1), with 1 1/2 cuff.
