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.

    Hi, fellas.

    I've got an absolutely beautiful Brooks Brothers 1818 classic blue seersucker suit for sale or trade. It is brand new; no tags, but I am 100% positive it's never been worn. Check my 100% feedback on eBay - username "misterbowles"; I'm no scam artist. I bought it early on in my suit-fascination phase, and while back then I knew I was a 46, I didn't know I wasn't a 46 Long (46X in BB parlance).

    It's just too damn long for me, and alterations to it would cost too much for my budget.

    Measurements:

    Jacket -
    Chest: 48"
    Waist: 46"
    Shoulder: 20 1/2"
    Length: 35"
    Outside sleeve: 28"
    Inside sleeve: 18"

    Trousers (flat front, finished but not cuffed) -
    Waist: 42" (with 1" to let out)
    Outseam: 44"
    Inseam: 31" (with 2 1/2" available to let out)

    I'd love to trade this suit for a 46R (48" chest, athletic waist (44-45"), 24.5-25" sleeve, trousers 38"-ish, inseam 31"ish ) suit of comparable quality. I don't have any criteria in mind other than comparable quality, really, although darker (black, navy) takes precedence. Will also consider selling for ~$200.00.

    Thanks for looking.
