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,

    I am selling another Sartoria Partenopea spring/summer sportcoat. This one is made of a beautiful baby blue herringone 100% linen, size 52 EU, which would normally be a 42R, but it measures closer to a 40R.

    In case you missed my previous heaping of praise on Sartoria Partenopea, they are an Italian maker on par with Brioni, possibly equal to Kiton. I defer to more expert judges of skilled handwork to differentiate between these exceptional lines. Sartoria Partenopea is still a bit of a secret here, as they aren't carried in many stores. Their best garments, which include this coat (they do have a cheaper line) are "strictly handsewn." See the pictures of the making of a Sartoria Partenopea jacket below. They claim to be "the best example of the great Neapolitan handmade tradition." I don't know if they are the best, but they are certainly phenomenal.

    Details
    Single breasted
    Three-roll-two button front
    Two double-besomed flap pockets
    Barchetta breast pocket
    Side vents (basted closed)
    Full canvas construction
    100% linen
    Lining 50% bemberg, 50% viscose
    Unfinished sleeves, buttons included, ready for your tailor to add working buttonholes

    Measurements
    Shoulder: 18"
    Chest: 43"
    Waist: 40"
    Length: 31"
    Sleeve: 25"

    This is really a beautiful jacket, and it's killing me that I can't find any of these in my size. The MSRP as marked on the resellers tag as $1050, which itself would be a good price. I'm selling it for $400, including free UPS ground shipping in the US. I can ship internationally but will add the cost onto the total. PM me if you are interested. Thanks for looking!

    A sharp forum member noticed that these measurements are closer to a 40R, which indeed they are. It's marked as a 52, but definitely measures closer to a 40R.

    Okay, I'd really like to sell this without putting it up on eBay, so I'll drop the price to $350, still including shipping to the US (UPS ground) and Canada (USPS). Overseas would add about $10.

    Someone here does need to own this. I bought the Sartoria Partenopea suit Chorse had on Andy last month and it's amazing. Great subtle handwork and gorgeous hand to the fabric. And Chorse was really great to work with.

    I'd buy this if I had the cash (ok, I could get over this somehow) and fit the shoulders (this one's not negotiable).
