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.

    UPDATED WITH NEW AUCTIONS!

    The latest items from The Holdfast Collection... [​IMG]

    As always, everything is new with tags and in pristine condition. I've consolidated all my other current stock into this thread, too.



    1) Small RL Purple Label Peacoat - $550 SOLD

    Rare peacoat from Ralph Lauren Purple Label. A classic british-khaki green/brown colour. 90% wool, 10% cashmere melton fabric. If you've been looking for a casual coat that doesn't compromise on quality, here it is. I don't know what the full retail would be, but given that Polo.com has the most basic Polo version listed at $425, then I can confidently say that given usual price differentials, Purple Label would be around $1500.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Style Details

    - very classic peacoat design
    - 8 buttons total, 4 can be potentially buttoned if you fold over the lapels, otherwise only the usual 3
    - slash pockets
    - short single rear vent
    - quarter-lined; so keeps you warm without adding bulk, plus you can see the neat seam-finishing.

    Measurements

    - tagged Small, I would estimate it best suited for a typical 38 or slim 40.
    - shoulder seam - shoulder seam: 18.5"
    - chest circumference: 40
    - crown-cuff: 26.5
    - length from base of collar: 30.5



    2) 38R RL Purple Label tweed sportcoat - $650 SOLD, pending payment

    Wonderful tweed sportcoat in a luxurious 75% wool, 25% angora fabric. No need to break the bank on this one - St Andrews tailoring for just $650 (retail would be around 3 times that)! Come get it.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Style Details

    - 2 buttons
    - notch lapels
    - 2 flap pockets
    - ticket pocket

    6) 38R/40R RL Polo chocolate brown moleskin overcoat - SOLD

    The moleskin fabric on this overcoat has a wonderful, rich, thick nap. It would retail for around $1500. The colour is a deep chocolate brown, but in the brightest sunshine a slight autumn red can emerge.

    3 buttons
    notch lapels
    single rear vent

    chest circumference: 43.5
    crown-cuff: 26" (+1)
    length: 43.25"

    This coat is tagged 38R, but if you look at the measurements, you'll see that it might suit a 40R better.



    7) 42R RLPL charcoal grey chalkstripe DB suit - SOLD

    Awesome. If you've yearned for a classic grey flannel chalkstripe DB, this is the one for you. This RLPL, made by St Andrews, is wonderfully styled and constructed. It would retail for over $4000. 95% wool, 5% cashmere. You won't regret this purchase.

    I received a couple of PMs asking about the size of the peacoat, so figured I'd repeat my answer here - it's tagged Small. As I posted in the original post, I'd estimate it as a 38, maybe a slim 40 if you like a fitted look. The chest circumference is 40", but I feel that peacoats are meant to fit fairly snugly. Suit/sportcoat jackets tend to have up between 3"-4" difference between the tagged chest size and jacket's measured chest size, if that helps.

    For added reference, in the first peacoat pic I'm wearing it and I'm a 38S in RLPL.

    I had an eBay query asking about authenticity of the 40L Black Label on eBay. Not sure if it came from a member here or not, but just to confirm - I absolutely 100% guarantee authenticity on all my items.

    I added a link to a close-up pic of the tags to the auction, which I reproduce in thumbnail form below:

    I wish you had some 36R suits. That Polo Navy stripe suit is a steal.
