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 solid hopsack medium gray suit is SOLD**

    I bought these from here in B&S last year. Probably wore them gently 5 times each if that. Here is what they original owner said about them:

    "First two suits: One dark gray/charcoal with subtle blue pinstripe the other solid hopsack medium gray. Both slim cut. I had them made to measure by a traveling HK tailor in NYC. They are excellent condition as I wore them only several times and then decided they are too slim for me. Double vents, working button cuffs, slim lapels. Equivalent to a 38R with some decent shoulders like RLBL."

    • Solid hopsack medium gray measurements: Chest:20.5, Shoulders: 18.5 Sleeves: 25", Length BOC: 29.5" Pants: W: 15.5, Rise: 10.5; Inseam: 28" (1.25 inch cuffs)
    • Dark gray/charcoal with stripes measurements: Chest:20.5, Shoulders: 18.5 Sleeves: 25", Length BOC: 29.5" Pants: W: 15.5, Rise: 10.5; Inseam: 28" (1.25 inch cuffs)
    • Price is $90 for each suit, but if you buy them both and ship together price is $165 CONUS. Other regions please PM me.

    Due to several PMs regarding these other measurements, I have summarized below:

    • There is 3/4" to maybe 1" to let out in the waist.
    • There may be some room to let out in the inseam. See post below
    • Width of trousers at the thigh is 11" and at the hem is 8.5".
    • Trousers are plain front - not pleated.

    I bought the gray suit. Correction: There is plenty to let out in the inseam (pleasant surprise to me!) at least in the suit I got. The cuff is like 1.25 inches yes, but it's actually sort of a double cuff -- it's folded inwards again so that the material facing out in the cuff isn't the 'inner side.' This might not really make sense, but OP you should unfold the cuff then feel the inside to feel another layer. I let both out and ironed, and the suit fits me perfectly now. Great seller!
