    This is the first time I've seen one of these posted, and in a popular size to boot. Â Betcha the seller would take a lower price when it doesn't sell for the asking price...be sure to check the jacket length http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....35&rd=1

    Filenes Basement dowtown Boston has a few Oxxford crest in stock in the 42 - 46R range, and they are currently $750 I believe.

    Is the 3rd button meant to button in this model or has the seller tweaked it?

    It looks to me like it is meant to have only the middle button done. And I don't know why so many ebay sellers insist on doing the bottom button, but they should really be put in style jail for it.

    I hate pleats. Stupid question but can pleated pants be made flat front without screwing them up?

    I really do NOT like the Oxxford Crest model. Specifically, I think the extended shoulder is ridiculous, especially when coupled with the extreme waist suppression and longer coat. I think you will find a lot of Crest models at the discounters since I do not think they are selling to the typical Oxxford customer. I believe Jack Simpson was behind the development of the Crest. I recently heard that Oxxford ended its relationship with Simpson about two weeks ago. Can anyone confirm this?

    Well, I think extended shoulder, very shapely chest, and supressed waist is amazing. So, there you go... [​IMG] Basically RLPL with more waist supression is my ideal style.
