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.

    - tagged 38S, has been tailored, so check the measurements below
    - may also work for a 38R if you like a shorter length or even a 40R/S if you have a slimmer build.
    - made in Italy by Saint Andrews
    - light brown, somewhere between caramel and milky coffee
    - 100% linen
    - unique fabric, in my experience
    - 3 buttons, rolling to 2
    - notch lapels
    - double rear vents
    - flap pockets, with ticket pocket
    -5 sleeve buttons. A bit of a curious case here. The previous owner only had the bottom 2 (of 4) buttons as functional. Because my arms are longer than his, i lengthened the jacket and added a 5th non-functioning button on the end.
    - trousers are classically English, with double-forward pleats and lovely side adjusters. The legs are finished with 1.75" turn-ups (cuffs)
    - both jacket and trousers have a lightweight lining

    Could certainly use a quick-press, but otherwise it's good to go.


    shoulder seam - shoulder seam: 18.5"
    chest circumference: 41"
    waist circumference: 35"
    length from base of collar: 29.5"
    crown-cuff sleeve length: 23 (+1" to let down if needed)
    trouser waist: 33.5"
    trouser inside leg: 28" (+1.75" cuffs and 1" in the turn ups)
    trouser leg opening circumference: 18"

    Requesting $250 + shipping.

    Looks pretty nice, shame it's too small/ short for me.
