"There are a ton of details that go into the Ludlow, but quite simply it's a great suit in world-class fabric. Constructed using herringbone wool fabric from Harris Tweed, the world's most renowned maker of tweed for centuries.

  • Scottish wool.
  • Three-button closure.
  • Nonfunctional buttons at cuffs.
  • Pickstitching along the collar, lapel, welt pockets and pocket flaps.
  • Double vent.
  • Bemberg lining
-J. Crew Editorial

Part of one of the best collections ever released, the F/W 2013 collection, which was inspired by the 1960s wide angle portraits done by accomplished photographer David Bailey.

Really not stoked about selling this but I live in California and the weather just won't permit. Fabric is very robust and has an amazing texture. Wouldn't mind trading for another Ludlow in 38S. Has been casually worn and doesn't really have any signs of wear at all. The pants, which are tagged 31 X 32 have been professionally hemmed to a 30 inch inseam with about 1.5 inches to let out. See measurements below!

Measurements (taken off of actual blazer laying flat completely buttoned)

•Chest (armpit to armpit across chest): 20 inches
•Sleeve Length (shoulder seam down the arm to end of cuff): 24.5 Inches
•Back Length (from the BASE of collar at seam down back to end): 29 Inches
•Shoulder seam to shoulder seam horizontally across the back: 17 Inches

measurements (taken off of actual pants laying flat)
waist (hip to hip across top): 16 inches
Front Rise: 10 inches
Inseam: 30 inches with a solid 1.5 inches to let out

Wouldn't mind trading for another Ludlow in 38S.
