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.

    Getting ready to move and need to clear out more things.

    First up is a super awesome overcoat in a heavy houndstooth wool. I'd be keeping this if it were smaller, but its really gonna be best for a 40 or 42 I think. Its made by Malcolm Kenneth which you've probably never heard of, but its very well made with bound seams, hand-sewn button holes and its fully canvased. Its half lined with a beautiful gold lining and has reach through hand-warmer pockets.

    Will ship within the USA for $85.

    Measurements:
    P2P: 24"
    Sleeve: 30" (from the bottom of the collar due to the raglan sleeves)
    BOC: 41"

    Next is a Ralph Lauren double breasted tuxedo jacket I picked up but never had altered to fit me. Tagged 40R but might work for a 38 as well.

    It has nice Tautz-esque peak satin lapels, unvented rear, and a ticket pocket.

    Its rather old (see the tag), but is still in decent shape. Some of the stitching in the lining around the left arm-hole is coming undone, but should be an easy fix. One of the buttons was also replaced at some point with a non-matching button. I've found that the local Polo store will switch these out for free or for a nominal fee if you have any alterations work done there. The sleeves are also pretty short, but its got over 3" of fabric turned under to be let out. There doesn't seem to be any fading on the cuff either, so the alteration should be minimally visible.

    Given all this, I'm asking $65 shipped within the US. A good deal a half-canvased tuxedo jacket. SOLD

    What's the shoulder measurement on the overcoat?

    The raglan sleeves don't really allow for a shoulder measurement.
