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.

    Hi guys,

    First of all, apologies. There is something wrong with my account which has been preventing my threads from appearing on the site but not preventing them from appearing in the subscription feed. So apparently subscription readers have seen this thread many times before—every time I tried (and failed) to get it to appear on the site.

    I'm clearing my recently unworn clothing out of my closet in preparation for a big move—which means I have a lot of stuff in the hard-to-find 36S size range to sell.

    Just to give you a sense of the scale: I'm 5'8, 135 lbs. If you're roughly the same size, most of the garments I'm selling should fit you quite nicely.

    First up: suits and sport coats. All prices *shipped* CONUS.

    1. 36S/Sz 0 Brooks Brothers Black Fleece by Thom Browne in Charcoal Wool ($500)
    The fabric on this suit is fantastic: soft but substantial, with great drape and hand. Perfect go-to piece for work or semiformal events. Made in Italy c. 2009 before production was moved to the US. I believe these Italian Black Fleece garments are actually constructed/tailored better than the later US models. Retails for $1,600.


    • Shoulder seam to seam - 16"
    • Pit to Pit - 18.5"
    • Sleeves - 23.5"
    • Length - 29"
    • 3 Button, Roll 2/Double Vent


    • Waist - 15.5" Across
    • Inseam - 29" (2" cuff)
    • Flat front

    2. 36S Brooklyn Tailors: One Light Gray Flannel Suit ($300), One Charcoal Flannel Suit ($300), One Brown/Gray Donegal Tweed Sport Coat ($200)

    Brooklyn Tailors is custom suiting company based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY. I had these three garments made especially for me a few years ago; I selected the fabrics along with founder Daniel Lewis at Beckenstein's in New York and commissioned three pieces. They're beautifully tailored suits/coats that fit a lot like Band of Outsiders: slim but classic. Brooklyn Tailors has gone on to be featured in GQ and Monocle and worn by Elijah Wood, Aziz Ansari, and restauranteur Andrew Tarlow, among others. Each suit retails for $995. More info here.

    "Brooklyn Tailors’ bespoke and ready-to-wear products represent an appreciation for handmade quality, authentic materials, and a pride in small artisinal production.
    Each item we design is produced one at a time, by a small team of craftspeople, affording us a unique and increasingly-rare level of control over the quality of our products and the personal service that we are able to provide."

    3. 38R Ralph Lauren Black Label Charcoal Wool Suit ($300)
    This one is too big for me in the shoulders and always has been--which is good news if it fits you, because it means I've barely worn it at all. Retails for $1,695.

    • Shoulder seam to seam - 17.75"
    • Pit to Pit - 18.75"; Waist (buttoned) - 16.5" (can be let out)

    4. 36S Brooks Brothers Mad Men Limited Edition Mid-Gray Sharkskin Suit ($200)
    Terrific 1960s-style sharkskin suit designed in collaboration with Janie Bryant of the AMC series. Limited edition of 250 suits from a few years back. Worn once outside of the house. Fitzgerald cut, no longer available in stores. Made in Massachusetts. Retailed for $1,000. More info here.

    • Shoulder seam to seam - 16"

    • 2 Button/Double Vent

    Let me know if you have any questions. Happy to send additional pictures or measurements. Just PM me.

    I'll be adding some similarly-sized sweaters, coats, and casual shirts in the Streetwear classifieds shortly (APC, Band of Outsiders, Thom Browne). Stay tuned, and thanks for looking.
