Here is the suit: It looks like a 46R, maybe on the shortish side?

Jacket chest: 46
Jacket sleeve length: 24.5
Jacket length from top of collar: 31.5

Again, I picked this up only to pass along at cost to a member. I couldn't let it go under-loved or under-appreciated.

If this needs to be on B&S, moderator let me know.




There is a gorgeous suit i
n the clearance rack at the Raleigh Off 5th. It is Saks house branded, no manufacturer identified, but made in England. Basting all over the place, and fully canvassed. It is a brown plaid, with mostly reds and oranges. A brilliant bright red lining. Fall weight fabric, and incredible drape. Slimmish lapels. No size on it, but I tried the jacket on and would estimate it to be a 44R. I didn't look at the pants very closely. Original price was up over $2k, and it is available now for $210.

Who makes this suit, if anyone knows?

I tell you what, I will shoot over there today and take a closer look. It has been there over a year, and I have probably tried it on ten times hoping by some miracle it has increased in size. I am a 48L!

I think I'll just buy it and get some detail. If anyone wants it I'll just sell for cost plus mailing. It deserves a deserving home.

I have a similar suit I got there - I think it was on the same rack as the Heild stuff back before it was on clearance.

My suit is similarly unbranded.

I have it on hold. The line was too long for checkout, so I am going to pick it up tomorrow morning.

Looks like a 44S by the limited measurements.
Awesome gesture!

Regards.

I am probably measuring the chest wrong. I am a 47L, and the jacket fits me perfectly in the chest. Fits me perfectly period, if it were only a long!
