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.

    I am looking for a black wool single breasted dinner jacket, not too heavy, with (not overly wide) peak lapels, one button and no vents; matching trousers, and if possible a low cut waistcoat. I usually take a 40l jacket, with 34w 33l trousers. The measurements of a well-fitting suit jacket I have are:
    collar-hem 33",
    18-19" across the shoulders,
    21.5 armpit-armpit,
    17" inside sleeve,
    25.5" outside sleeve.

    I am also in the market for a couple of 2 or 3 piece 3 button wool suits in the same size, preferably with side adjustors and buttons for braces on the trousers. Navy or charcoal are colours I'm fond of (especially herringbone weave), as well as chalkstripes. I should also acknowledge a liking for subtle tweeds, especially harris and donegal, and am looking for a green lovat or brown herringbone jacket with 3 buttons.

    I apologise for making this list of wants as my first post, but I am a research student with very little grant trying to create a respectable wardrobe.

    Ah, if only I had SF when I was a student at the 'other place'.

    Sometimes I really think hard about going back for another undergraduate degree, like Law. I think I'd have quite a lot of fun, and plenty of excuses to dress up. High table and the like.

    I always loved subfusc; can't beat trying to tie that bow-tie up with exam nerves in your fingers.

    Oops, sorry for hijacking your thread; hope you get some offers. You're my sort of size - unfortunately I only have one DJ, and actually have no tweeds! That's a hole in wardrobe I must remedy.

    Moths seem to enjoy trying to make holes in my tweedy wardrobe.

    Surely someone must be able to help?

    MY previous plea was brought to mind as I watched the bids for a particularly nice grey flannel chalkstripe I saw on ebay shoot above my price range: if only I wasn't a research student; if only some authority would give me a grant!
