    I’m selling a STAPLE dark charcoal suit, custom made in Korea (but measures to a basic 40R/S).

    Worn exactly 5 times. In excellent condition.

    This is a great suit for anyone looking for a great low-price staple suit .

    I had this suit made for me in February of this year by a reputable local tailor. This tailor is not the standard MTM, cheap, fused-jacket, finished-in-2-days kind of tailor that some may associate with tailors in Korea.

    The suit is fully-canvassed and was made with proper care (3 fittings, 4 weeks total from order to finished product).
    The fabric was woven in English (no cheap Samsung fabrics here), and was purchased from the reputable ebay seller, how6955).
    I am only selling the suit because I now have 5 grey suits, and I need to make some room. I like this one, by I like my Zegna and Caruso charcoal suits a hair bit better.

    Features:

    - 100% Wool.
    - Custom made in Korea (approx. size 40R/S).
    - Two-button jacket with dual-rear vent, ticket pocket, and working cuff buttons.
    - Fully-canvassed. Pick-Stitching.
    - Flat-front trousers.
    - Fabric was woven and purchased in England (not Korean fabric).

    PRICE:

    Fabric cost (purchased from ebay: how6955): $100
    Tailor cost: $500

    Asking: $180 --> $`155(shipped worldwide).


    Measurements:

    Jacket:

    Chest: 21.25” (pit to pit).
    Waist: 20” (across the top button).
    Shoulders: 18” (seam to seam across the back).
    Sleeves: 24” (with approx. 0.5” to let out).
    Total length: 31” (from top of collar)

    Trousers:

    Actual waist: 36” (with approx. 1” to let out).
    Inseam: 29.25” (with 2.25” to let out).

    If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
