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.

    This is a great suit that I have not yet worn. After Christmas I have ended up with more suits than I have closet space for so I need to move some out.

    This suit was purchased at retail from Club Monaco (a subsidiary of Ralph Lauren). It was made in Haverhill, Massachusetts by Southwick. This is the factory owned by Brooks Brothers and used to manufacture many of their 1818, Own Make, and Black Fleece suits. This is a high-quality suit for a fantastic price.

    Sizing
    This is a modern, slim fit suit.

    Navy chalk stripe. 100% flannel lambswool with a very soft, luxurious hand. Two button. Half-canvased. Side vented.

    Blazer is size 38R and has been brought in slightly in the sides / waist suppressed.

    Trousers are tagged size 30. The waist has not been altered. The actual waist measurement is 32". There is enough fabric to let out the waist an additional 2". The trousers have been hemmed to approximately 32" inseam and have enough fabric to let out another 2".

    Price
    $200.
    Shipping is by your choice of courier.
