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,

    beautiful piece from Ralph Lauren heritage there. Can you provide an approximate date of manufacture or retail purchase? circa early 2000's?

    Yes, I'd say its from around 2000 since after that they switched production to Italy.

    I am still surprised that this item hasn't sold. It is absolutely stunning, and my size, but way out of my budget.

    Is that spring-fall-winter? what's the fabric weight like?

    Its flannel, so its pretty warm. Depends on where you live if you can wear it spring and fall.

    Drop to $850.

    ok, well that lets me out - living in Singapore and travelling around Asia, that is probably not the best suit to wear.
    sent you a PM for the other suit though!
