STUNNING OXXFORD SUIT!

Hand-Tailored and Never Worn!




This is absolutely gorgeous! It has NEVER BEEN WORN, and is complete not only with all of its original tags, but all of its original basting, too; all three front pockets are sewn shut, and the shoulders also carry the original basting thread. Yes, this is that Internet rarity--a genuinely New With Tags Oxxford suit, which has really never been worn! As such, this suit is in precisely the same condition as it would be in were you to have purchased it new--better, in fact, insofar as it still retains the basting thread that your store's in-house tailor would have removed.

As well as being genuinely and completely New With Tags, this suit boasts all of the features that you would expect from Oxxford's higher-end offerings.

It has been Made by Hand.

The suit is cut from a beautiful lighter-weight navy blue wool cloth; this is advertised as being a "Lakeshore Tropical" suit, and so is perfect for the warmer days of Spring and early Fall, as well as summer. Both jacket and trousers are beautifully cut. The jacket is fully canvassed, and half lined in Oxxford's signature lining, featuring its insignia. The stitching throughout appears to be done by hand, and the buttonholes appear handmade--this comports with the tag stating that this suit was made by hand. The jacket features a single center vent. It also features three patch pockets, all of which still retain their original basting. The jacket has a 3/2 lapel roll, but is subtly darted, so it is not a classic 3/2 sack. The buttons are beautifully shaped, feature subtle grooving, and appear to be solid brass; they are certainly not merely plated. Owing to the type of buttons used as well as the patch pockets the jacket could function perfectly as a blazer without the accompanying trousers.

The trousers are double-pleated and feature waist loops. One leg is unhemmed; the other is hemmed and cuffed. They have some minor discoloration on the interior waistband at some point, possible from the heat of a press. Otherwise, they are, like the jacket, in new condition.

Please note that the trousers have a large waist; as such, this suit is PRICED AS A BLAZER, although the trousers will accompany the jacket.

The retail on an Oxxford suit of this quality is extremely high; in four figures, with the first not being a 1! However, my pricing structure is simple; I offer rarities like this at prices that I, as a junior academic, would consider a wonderful bargain were I to be their buyer! So, this is priced at

just $165, OR OFFER, boxed, shipped, and insured in the CONUS. International inquiries are also very welcome, with tracked Priority mail shipping at cost.

Measurements:

Chest: 22 1/2
Sleeve: 25 1/2 (+1 3/4)
Shoulder: 19 1/4
Length: 31 1/8

Waist (laid flat): 21
Inseam 34" without hem; 30 3/8 with hem, plus 1 1/2 cuff and 1 1/4 to extend.

nothing sucks more than these posts that do not contain basic information like size in the title.
