1) NWT BEAUTIFUL MAJER GREY FLANNEL SUIT!

SOLD

This is absolutely stunning! Cut from dark grey flannel with a wonderful hand and drape, this beautiful suit is a wardrobe classic--and it's a very desirable size! Cut as a contemporary two-button front with subtle darting, this has four button cuffs and a single centre vent. It is half-canvassed, and half lined. The trousers are flat-front, as one would expect from Majer, and feature both belt loops and suspender buttons. It was Union made in the USA.

This suit is new, with its original Majer tags attached. It is, then, in absolutely excellent condition.

Asking just $135, boxed, shipped, and insured in the CONUS.

2) NTW Made in Italy Gino Valentino wool-silk suit.

This is by no means the nicest suit you'll see here, but it is NWT, and is decent--certainly very decent at my price! It's a more fashionable three button front and is unvented, in Flusser-approved style. The fabric is 91% wool 9% silk, and is reasonable quality--it was apparently woven in Italy, where the suit was made. The trousers are flat-front and cuffed, with the pockets set on the leg, not the seam. This suit is fully lined, and features pick stitching on the lining, as shown. This is NWT, and so is in superb condition. It was made in Italy, and is a very good deal at

just $60 > 55 > 45, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

A lovely, classic suit! The is a charcoal with cream pinstripes. It is half-canvassed and fully lined, and is cut as a contemporary two button front with subtle darting and a centre vent. It was Union made in the USA. It features four button cuffs. The trousers are pleated and cuffed. This suit has a small smudge on the top of the left shoulder, as well as a smudge on the front and one on the trousers; these are from dry cleaning detergent and will almost certainly be easily removed with dry cleaning; given this, though, it is in Very Good condition, and hence is just

$45 > 40, boxed and shipped in the CONUS.

Measurements:

Chest: 20 1/4

This is lovely! Union Made in the USA by H. Freeman of Philadelphia (one of the great American clothiers) this is a classic contemporary suit--two button front, subtle darting, half-lining, and center vent. It appears to be fully canvassed, and is a very, very versatile dark grey. This is a true wardrobe staple! The trousers are flat front and uncuffed. This is in excellent condition, and is a steal at just

$75 > 65 > 59, boxed and shipped in CONUS--or offer!

5) TWEEDY SUIT by Polo Ralph Lauren for Princeton University Shop!

SOLD

If you really want a tweed suit, but aren't quite sure that you can pull it off--then this is for you! It's a lovely tweedy suit, but not as robustly tweed as a Harris or Donegal suit would be. The tweedy cloth is a glen plaid, with a lovely medly of dark blues and peat blacks with a dark red overcheck. This is a wonderful suit for Fall! Made for Princeton's University Shop by Ralph Lauren's Polo University Club, this suit has a contemporary two-button darted jacket that has four button cuffs and a single vent. It is fully lined, and the trousers are flat-front. It was Union made in the USA, and is in excellent condition apart from some loose stitching in the lining at the vent, as shown.

6) Double Breasted Grey Flannel Suit by Boss.

Boss gets very little love here--and nor should it, at full retail. But if you liek double breasted suits--or you'd like to expand your wardrobe to include one--then this is for you! Cut from a dark dove-grey wool flannel this lovely suit is half-canvassed and fully lined. It is unvented, in Flusser-approved style, and has jetted pockets. The lapels have pick stitching. The trousers are pleated, and have pockets off the seams. This suit is in excellent condition, and is an absolute bargain at just

$50 > 45 > 40 boxed and shipped in CONUS.

Waist: 19 1/4






7) CLASSIC 3/2 sack by H. Freeman for The English Shop of Princeton!

SOLD

It doesn't really get much more trad. than this--a classic 3/2 sack cut for The English SHop of Princeton! A trad style of suit, made by one the great American clothiers, for one of the great Ivy menswear stores--now defunct.

This is a lovely suit! A classic 3/2 sack made by H. Freeman, this is a wonderful light grey nailhead with dark red overcheck. This appears to be fully canvassed; it is half-lined with a single center vent. It has three button cuffs, and was made in the USA. This has very natural shoulders. The trousers are flat front.

This suit is all wool, but the fabric is now a little stiff--rather like the fabric of "Wash and Wear" sack suits from H. Freeman and Brooks and J. Press. This does not detract from it, and otherwise the suit is in Very Good/Excellent condition--I'm just conservative with older items!

This is a steal at just $50 > 40, or offer, boxed and shipped in CONUS!

Measurements:


Chest: 21 5/16
Sleeve: 24 3/4 (+1 1/4)
Shoulder: 17 1/2

Inseam: 30 (+3)
Waist: 17 1/4






9) BEAUTIFUL 3/2 sack suit--FULLY CANVASSED!

SOLD

The maker's label in this has been removed--but tha's not a problem, as the quality of this suit speaks for itself. Cut from a wonderful grey minature herringbone cloth with a subtle dark red vertical stripe, this is a really lovely example of a 3/2 sack suit, with a beautiful lapel roll, three button cuffs, and a single centre vent. It is half-lined and fully canvassed. The trousers are flat front, and fitted with both belt loops and suspender buttons. This was Union made in the USA, and is in excellent condition.

Asking just $75, or offer.

Measurements:


Chest: 22 1/8
Sleeve: 25 (+2 1/4)
Shoulder: 18 3/4
Length: 32

Inseam: 32 (+1) with 1 1/2 cuff.
Waist: 19 1/4








10) STRANGELY APPEALING brown Double-Breasted suit.

This suit wouldn't normally be the sort of thing I like--but this is strangely appealing! It's a double-breasted suit with peak lapels in a mocha brown cloth. It's well cut and seems to be half-canvassed; it's fully lined. It's darted, and unvented, as Flusser approves of, and has four buttons cuffs. The trousers are pleated. It's well-made, and very strangely appealing.

It would also be the ideal suit paired with a black shirt, white tie, and a fedora for a gangster costume at Hallowe'en! Or else you could just wear it as it is. It's weird, but weirdly attractive, too.

You can enjoy the strangeness of this for just $40 > 30 > 25, or offer, boxed and shipped in the CONUS.

Measurements:


Chest: 21 3/4
Sleeve: 26 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 19 1/2

This is rumpled from storage, but this will be fixed with the first dry-clean--and fixed easily! However, because of this this is just in Very Good condition, and hence is just $45 > 40 > 35, or offer, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

It is fully canvassed and fully lined, and features a single centre vent. The trousers are flat-front. The jacket's lining is set off with contrasting yellow piping. This was made by Southwick, one of the great American clothiers, in the USA.

The jacket does have some minor shine to the elbows from wear, but this really doesn't detract from it--in fact, it adds character! because of this, though, this beauty is in Very Good condition, and hence I'm asking just $45 > 39, or offer, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

15) Damaged Southwick pinstripe suit

This was a lovely suit, and with some repair could still be a wardrobe workhorse. It's a dark grey with pinstriping, half-canvassed, with two button cuffs and a half-lining and a single vent. But it has quite a bit of damage. The lining is torn at the hem on both sides and at the shoulder at the top, two of the cuffs buttons are missing, and the hem of the jacket has discolouration along its length, which might or might not come out with dry cleaning, as do both cuffs. Given these problems, this is close to free, being just

$15, boxed and shipped in CONUS.

Sleeve: 26 (+1)
Shoulder: 19
Length: 32

Inseam: 30 (+1)
