    For sale is my immaculate, blue 3-piece custom suit by Hart Schaffner Marx. I purchased this suit, custom made, through Nordstrom. It retailed for $1,250, and as my first made-to-measure suit, I anxiously waited six weeks for it to arrive from Chicago, its place of birth. I choose the fabric, an absolutely beautiful blue (not too dark), with a subtle birdseye/nailhead pattern to it. The fabric quality is excellent, and given the medium weight, can be worn throughout the year. I have lovingly and diligently cared for this suit, and its condition is testament to my care. The suit was always lightly brushed after every wear, and hung up in my airy bathroom to air out before putting it back into my closet. The jacket condition is flawless, with no rips, snags, holes or spots. The ONLY sign of wear on the jacket is a slight bit of fraying on the lining inside, directly below the right interior chest pocket. The trousers and waistcoat are also in excellent condition, with the only sign of wear being a small amount of pilling on the chest of the waistcoat. This pilling was actually the result of the custom label affixed inside the jacket, rubbing up against the waistcoat (this label read “Made exclusively for (my name)”). Upon noticing the pilling it began to cause, I had it subsequently removed by a seamstress. Like the jacket, the trousers and waistcoat contain no rips, snags, holes or spots. Besides the aforementioned wear areas, this suit is in outstanding condition (I’d rate it 9.5/10). Please read below for additional specifications on each piece. Remember, there are no returns, so please ask any and all questions you may have, prior to bidding. I will gladly furnish additional photos if necessary, including specific areas you may want me to photograph. Thanks for your interest!

    Your suit comes with a free Nordstrom canvas garment bag, and Nordstrom wooden hanger.
