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.

    THE PROPERTY OF A GENTLEMAN


    I've been asked by a rather distinguished acquaintance to find new homes for a considerable amount of the clothing that he no longer wears owing to weight gain and retirement... and what better place to begin that here? He's aristocratically disinclined to try to "maximum return" on these items, and he dislikes ebay, so they're being passed on here in the hope and expectation that they will find new homes with people who appreciate fine clothing.

    And these jackets are exquisite. They are bespoke, made by Charles, and boast simply lashings of handwork; the buttonholes are all hand-sewn, the lapels and edgings feature pick-stitching throughout, as do the interior seams, the pocket flaps, the collar...... and so on. The cuffs are, of course, fully functional. All of these jackets are fully lined, and they all feature symmetrical sets of interior pockets: The original owner was training himself to be ambidextrous so that he could fully utilize the custom-made pair of left and right-handed double-barreled shotguns that he had had made for him at Purdey's of London in the late 1980s, and which he used to hunt gamebirds in Scotland each year. All of the jackets are ventless, as he believed that (twin) vented jackets were only useful for persons who rode (horses) frequently--and disliked single vents.

    Prices are, for the reason offered above, low to begin with, and, as always, already include boxed shipping in CONUS with delivery confirmation. International inquiries are welcome, with shipping at cost. Despite the low initial prices, OFFERS ARE STILL VERY WELCOME, especially for two or more of these beauties!

    Please PM with interest and offers!

    1) BEAUTIFUL striped summer jacket MADE FOR SUMMERING IN VENICE!

    SOLD

    This jacket was made expressly for spending a summer in Venice with an eye to recreating (on a grander scale) the vacation of Charles Ryder and Sebastian Flyte in Brideshead Revisited, absent the adulterous host and homoerotic overtones. Apparently, this looks absolutely beautiful in the aquatint light of a late afternoon palozzo, and the colourway and cut of this jacket seemingly made it a big hit both in Venice and (later) Florence.

    This is in excellent condition-, and my pictures fail to do it justice. The striping is very subtle, and I failed to capture it in the main picture, alas.

    Asking just $75, with lower offers being very welcome.

    Measures:

    Chest: 23
    Sleeve: 24 3/4 (+1 1/2)
    Shoulder: 19 3/4
    Length: 31 7/16 (precisely!)

    (2) STUNNING bespoke jacket in Loro Piana Zelander fabric.

    Cut from 100% New Zealand merino wool this jacket is simply gorgeous. a beautiful, almost midnight, blue, it features a subtle overcheck in autumnal bracken. Naturally, it features all of the details outlined above--lashings of handwork, surgeon's cuffs, unvented, symmetrical interior pockets, a beautiful cut, and wonderful provenance--and it is in excellent condition. It is fully canvassed.

    Asking just $75 > 65, or lower offer.

    Measurements:

    Chest: 23
    Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+1)
    Shoulder: 20 1/4
    Length: 31

    Asking just $75, or offer.
