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.

    I ended up winning the Purple Label suit on Ebay that I posted about. Well, I have to sell it because it is just too similar to the Oxxford that I bought (and took to the tailor already) and I can't justify the purchase for a similar item. I'm selling it for what I bought it for -- $602 after bidpay fees -- and will ship it for $8. It is AWESOME. 3 season weight (probably couldn't wear it during hot summer days) in a charcoal pinstripe. Double vented, "soft" three button (3 buttons, but lapel rolled to middle button), ticket pocket, very little shoulder padding to give it a natural shoulder (sort of like Oxxford, IMO), double pleated pants. The measurements are 42" chest, 39" waist, 18.5" shoulder, 32" from top of collar (30.5 from bottom of collar), with 24.25" sleeves that are unfinished. Pants are a 34" waist and are untailored. The suit is of course flawless, though there are a few wrinkles in the back that need to be steamed out -- no problem there. No smoke smell or anything like that. I think it's probably a Fall 2003 model, before RLPL started getting crazy in the cuts. Please PM me (DON'T EMAIL ME..&#33[​IMG] if interested. Thanks,

    Oh man, I'd be so interested in that if it wasn't a pinstripe. I need a good suit for interviewing in. Sounds amazing, especially with the soft shoulder.

    Great price though.
