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.

    J. Press Seersucker Suit
    all the trad details 3/2 sack, natural shoulders, flat front pants
    very light weight blue/grey on white seersucker

    I'd estimate it fits a 36 or slim 38, small regular or short.
    the shoulder measurement seems small, and it may be, but the shoulders fit me just fine, and I'm a pretty standard size 38 (most of my jackets are around 17 1/2" shoulders).
    They shoulders are very natural and unpadded, if that means anything in regards to th measurements

    19 3/4" across the chest, 16" across the shoulders, 26" sleeves, 29 1/2" bottom collar to hem 32 x 30 1 3/4" cuffs


    $80 shipped conus or offer

    Polo double breasted seersucker sportcoat

    I pickedup this older PRL coat, and have finally decided that as much as I love it, it'll never be altered enough to fit me, and it's just too big.

    Pity too, I love the styling and all the details:
    small line dark blue on white seersucker, double breasted, three patch pockets
    4x2 front, MOP buttons, fairly unstructured, just to broad across the shoulders and chest for me.
    The labels are on the big side, but I really don't think it's a terribly dated jacket at all, especially as DBs go.

    21" across the chest 19" across the shoulders 26 1/4" sleeves and 31 1/4" bottom collar to hem.

    Polo Oxford cloth suit.

    Picked this up from a forum member some time ago, again, just too big for me and as much as I like it, beyond alterations too.
    Light blue oxford cloth material same as a blue OCBD.

    A bit of an odd duck, the jacket is just marked "medium" and the pants 34/34, it's the same exact material ,but it may have been sold as separate pieces.
    Thre button jacket, center vent, I think it fits like at least a 40, despite the small chest (as a 38 it's just too big for me, hence the sale).
    It's also a Long, and since the sleeves buttons are cut through the sleeves can;t really be altered.
    20 5/8" across the chest, 18" shoulders, 26" sleeves 31" bottom collar to hem
    pants are flat front, 34" heist and 33 1/2" inseam

    asking $75 shipped conus or offer
