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.

    razor sharp tailoring. made in italy. 85% wool, 15% silk. notch lapel, single vent, button fly. selling only because the jacket is a size too small and the pants are about 1/2" too short. this would be best for a true 48 who is ~5'10" or shorter, i think. for reference, i'm ~6' tall with a long torso (see fit pic below).

    note: there's a bit of wrinkling/waviness to the fabric of the suit jacket around the pockets, i think due to the silk component. i'm guessing this could be fixed by having the jacket steamed, but i think it looks cool as is (see second-to-last pic). there's also a small hole in the lining of the jacket near the left breast pocket (see last pic).

    jacket measurements
    pit to pit: ~20"
    shoulder to shoulder: 17.5"
    sleeve: 25.5"
    length: 29.75"

    trouser measurements
    waist: 16." (with 1.5" to let out)
    rise: 10.25"
    thigh: 11.5"
    inseam: ~30" (the hem still needs to be closed, so the usable inseam is just under 30")
    hem: 7.75"

    fine print
