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.

    Having recently sold 2 double breasted RLPL suits on the forum, here I have for sale a slightly different DB in a larger size. The fabric of this particular suit is a softer, finer worsted wool than the previous two, which explains the $600 increase in the full retail cost.

    For sale I have a NWT RLPL suit in a size 42R, more specifically 42R Drop 6 (hence the pants are tagged 36). This particular example is a 4x2 double breasted peak lapel suit from the RLPL "Custom Fit" line, a cut that is trimmer than standard RLPL (in-between RLPL and RLBL when comparing the measurements).

    Made in Italy by St. Andrews in a 3 season weight worsted 100% wool; really a top-notch fabric once you get your hands on it. Charcoal with a white dot stripe spaced a fraction under 1" apart. All the styling details we've come to expect from RLPL - precise yet subtle pick stitching on the lapel edges, pocket edges and zip front. Pants are double pleated with side tab adjusters, suspender buttons, split curtain waistband, on-seam front pockets and two back pockets with button closure. Really beautiful sweeping lapels with an exquisite peak, and not too wide either. Hand sewn buttonholes.

    Sleeves and vents have all basting intact and included is the RLPL pouch with buttons and matching thread. For the pants there are belt loops, tape for adding heel guards, and some spare fabric for repairs.

    Full retail on this baby was £3,050, or approx. $4,900.
