Brooks Brothers luxury cotton suit in light poplin, 40R. Brand new, never worn, unfinished hem and sleeves. However, there is a tailor's chalkmark on the back of the jacket that predated my purchasing it—must have been a return to BB.com. Retail $1298, purchased for $700. Retail description:

Two-button suit, made from cotton, woven in Italy at Rossi Mill. Real horn buttons. Ticket pocket. 3/8 lined with paisley print piped in interior besoms. Side vents. Plain-front trousers. Dry clean. Made in Italy.

The tailor at BB told me that this suit was discontinued because(???) it ran much slimmer than BB's normal cuts. Trousers: leg opening 7.5", inseam 34" unfinished, rise 9, waist 17.5" laid flat and unbuttoned. Jacket: pit to pit 20", shoulders across back 17.5", length 29", sleeve 25".

Asking $500 including shipping USPS Priority within the US; will ship outside US at actual cost.

Updated to add: now on eBay.
