Just in time for spring and summer, here's a NWT two piece from Hickey Freeman. Sadly, just a little too big for me -- labeled a 39R, but I need a small 39R. This one could work for a 40R if you like a bit snugger fit. All wool, tan/taupe, union made in the U.S.A. Your price for this NWT item: only $185 + $9.50 shipping within the continental U.S.



Measurements: Shoulders: 19 inches; chest: 43 inches; length (from bottom of collar): 30.5 inches; sleeves: 24.5 inches. Trousers are labeled a 33 waist, unhemmed, double pleated and lined to the knee in front.



This is a nice suit, but I'll point out a couple of things just because I want you to be entirely happy with what you're getting. First, a couple of tiny pinpoint holes on the sleeve where it looks like a tag was attached. I presume this will come out with a pressing, but my iron is broken so I couldn't do it myself.



The other I didn't even notice until I really scrutinized the jacket. The lapel near the pocket has what I'd guess is a slight weaving defect, like a thread is missing. Looks a bit like the fabric has been scratched lightly. You'll have to squint and use your imagination to see it, but here's the best closeup I could get. Not the type of thing most people would notice or care about, but FYI.



PM if interested. Payment by PayPal, please. Shipping insurance available for $5. Thanks for looking.
