    Here is a working link. It is one of the old Ralph Lauren collection suits - before the advent of Purple Label and before production went to Chester Barrie. They were made in the USA, canvas front, not bad suits. But not nearly the quality of current Purple Label.

    Yeah, it took me a while to edit my link correctly (my cut and paste is not working thanks to an idiot virus I got via email). So, A. Harris, assuming the suit is in like new condition, what is good price for the thing in this auction?

    Oh, and how old do you venture this suit is?

    $200-$250 max. I'm not positive, but very likely early 90's.

    Thanks. I think you are probably the Obi-Won Kenobi of this board. We are but apprentices to your knowledge.

    Am I wrong or is this more like a 38 ? The measurements would fit me and I take 38S.

    If they were taken correctly it measures to a slim 38.
