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.

    I bought this extremely rare 3 piece suit and found it fits much smaller than the stated size. Gutting really as I'm unlikely to find another.


    Condition

    Gently worn. No real signs of wear.

    Cloth

    Super 130's 'Dandy Attitude' wool. Mid-weight flannel. Light grey with dark grey/white windowpane.

    Model

    Base Cortina.

    Details

    Jacket:
    2 button closure
    Patch pockets at hips
    Barchetta chest pocket
    Double vented
    Unlined except for shoulders and sleeves

    Waistcoat:
    Double breasted, 3X6 closure
    Shawl lapels
    Barchetta type hip pockets
    Adjustable back belt

    Pants:
    Multi-button closure
    Zip fly
    Lined to knee

    All three pieces feature hand-sewn buttonholes. Not all Isaia suits have this.

    Size and Measurements

    Label says 50EU drop 8R - fits more like a 46EU

    Jacket:
    Chest, pit to pit: 19.5"
    Waist: 17.5"
    Shoulders: 17.25"
    Sleeves: 26"
    Length BOC: 28.5"

    Waistcoat:
    Chest 19.5"

    Trousers:
    Waist: 15" + 2" max to let out
    Inseam: 29.5" + 1.5" max to let out

    Sleeve buttonholes are not opened, so sleeve can be adjusted. I examined closely and the bottom of the trousers have no wear and can easily be let out.

    I am open to offers in the region of $550 $500, which includes worldwide shipping from the UK.

    Price drop. Willing to accept offers so start a dialogue and it might work in your favour. :)

    I just re-measured the shoulders and they actually measure 17.25" across from seam to seam. I re-measured everything else and there are no other errors.

    I tend to be very precise with measurements and they represent the absolute maximum distance between the two points being measured. Some sellers seem to just toss the garment on the bed and drop a tape measure on top and write down what they see, which is how I end up with lots of clothes that don't fit. You can have full confidence in my measuring ability, though (other than the error noted above :) )
