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,

    Fok.

    A magnificent late-model suit from Henry Poole in a winter-weight navy blue plain weave cloth. This wardrobe staple has no signs of wear -- perhaps it was never worn at all...

    Measurements, in inches: top to bottom in back 31.75, from collar seam 30.5, shouldedr 17.75, right arm 23.5, left arm 24 (this is easy to alter from cuff or shoulder), chest 45, coat waist 44. Three button front. Four buttons each cuff, two working. Double rear vent. All wool.. Fully lined. Pants waist 38 with 2.5 to let out. Outseam 40, inseam 29 with 3 inches to let out if you let out the 1.6 inch cuff. Patn leg 19 at ankle.. Flat front. Hand made in England. Make date 1996. Excellent condition.

    The suit on offer here is entirely different from the other Poole suits I have on offer on ebay. They were made in the early 1960s, while this was made practically yesterday, and there is nothing to distinguish it from one made today. The three button front and lapels have a perfectly contemporary shape, the rear is double vented, and the pant have a flat front and a slightly tapered leg.

    The fabric is a navy blue plain weave in a heavy winter weight.

    The suit shows no signs of wear at all. One pant leg cuff is held together with safety pinis, as if the sewing was never done – as if the suit was never actually worn at all.

    All the white striped linings at the waist band and sleeves are as white as the day they were sewn in place.

    Also note the low price on this $4000 item in a rare standard size. It includes free shipping in the US (25 USD to Canada, 30 USD to the rest of the world).

    Also check my other great listings!
