    I'm very surprised, too. Not only does SuitSupply never run sales, but there still aren't many B&S listings for them. Pretty killer price and this size should work for a lot of people - not me, though. BOC is too short for my 6'1 frame.

    I suspect the neck alteration is what's spooking potential buyers.

    Yeah, maybe ... I've always thought of that as not a tough alteration, though. Then again, I have easy access to several very good tailors and I know a lot of other locations have big challenges with that.

    I believe you are right. But as stated, it's a very simple alteration. In any case, this thread got people going. I received 5 PMs after TM79 posted it here (thank you). It's sold now.

    Thanks for the include! If anyone is interested in my C&Js, tell me you saw them in this thread and I'll knock off $25 from my ask.

    I would seriously consider that suit if the trousers wouldn't be an issue for me. I would prefer if the suit was a drop 8-10 as I need a 33" waist, but then the seat area would be to tight as I require more room than the average size 32-34 pants. As it is now, I don't feel like taking in the waist 3 inches.

    B&S is definitely tilted toward most people buying < $500 items

    That definitely doesn't help matters.
