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.

    Before this goes to consignment one try here. These two pieces are very very rare, tagged 42L.
    Ticket pocket. Double vented.
    I have not noticed any flaws however always possible that something missed in examination of such vintage pieces. I can't date this due to no union tags. It looks rarely used.
    Made from Irish tweed in Ireland. looks hand-loomed tweed.

    Pit to pit 22 inches, waist (at 2nd button) 20.5 inches. Shoulder 18 plus minus 0.5 inches. Sleeves 26 inches with 1.5 inches inside. BOC 32 inches.
    Waistcoat has a p to p 21.5 inches.

    Those were very nice. I'd guess 80s or earlier.
    J Press in that time ocassionaly departed from the
    three button center vent sack suit. I, for example,
    own a two button natural shoulder glen plaid suit
    with side vents from Press. . It is in my "clothing museum".
