    Hey guys, selling a NWT suit so rare, you may be the only one in the entire country that owns one (no joke):

    https://www.styleforum.net/buyandse...vy-pinstripe-rare-sartorial-collection.14843/

    This is beyond regular hand made Purple Label. It’s from the Limited run Sartorial Collection which has even more handwork (basically made on the bespoke bench) and is super 180s and up. Retailed for $8k in 2010. Takes 30 hours to make one suit.

    Has the softest fabric I’ve ever seen.

    Why does this $8k suit have such terrible pattern matching on the pockets?

    There is a front dart. They chose to match the pockets to the undarted fabric below. They also chose to match the ticket pocket with the lower pockets, as the ticket is set into a darted area. To match the ticket pocket to the underling fabric, the flap would have to be made of multiple pieces. What would you prefer?

    Watch is now SOLD - cheers all.

    Offered for sale only is this stunning Seiko 6138-0017 UFO from April 1977.


    Seiko 6138s are getting much harder to find these days than the more plentiful 6139s. And even harder to find a 6138 is premium original condition.

    This watch is in stunning original condition. The case bears the dings and scratches consistent with its age, and there is a small ding at around 10 o-clock in the outer metal bezel ring. The dial itself is near flawless – and a stunning combination of colours. The head of the watch is all original save for the replacement OEM crystal, which is in perfect shape – the better to view that stunning dial!


    The bracelet is a vintage Seiko bracelet that will fit a 7 ½” wrist with ease. My wrist is very slightly larger and the fit is slightly loose. I cannot confirm that the bracelet itself is original to the watch.


    The watch was serviced by the former owner prior to sale to me, and I’ve had it a little over a year. It is functioning flawlessly.

    • Chrono start / stop / reset are crisp with a precise reset to zero of all hands.

    • Day and date set properly with the crown and advance as they should.

    • Crown hand winds as it should.

    • Watch keeps solid time.
    Grab a classic, timeless, in-house column-wheel mechanical chronograph for a song.

    US$575 shipped and PayPaled within Canada and the US. One number to click and ship. No extras or “net-to-me” fudging of the price.

    I will consider international sales to established forum members, but please understand that you will bear the cost of shipping overseas and it is ridiculously high.


    Happy to answer questions, but the first “I’ll take it!” by email at [email protected] or PM will acquire this fantastic watch.


    Thanks for reading, and now onto the pics.

    PM me for a special deal for local pickup - downtown TO during the weekdays or Oakville evenings and weekends

    Thanks for explaining.

    I guess I would prefer something where it doesn't look like I'm looking at a reflection of a suit in a mirror that's cracked in multiple places. I suppose that's the compromise with a darted jacket with that kind of pattern.

    Eh. I agree with the other guy. I couldn't stand the look of that if I dropped eight grand on a suit.

    This is a reminder as to why I stopped reading the Ultimate Toronto Thread, and this thread. Unnecessary bashing of others.

    I'm genuinely sorry I'm coming across as shitting on your thread because I'm pointing out how odd it looks like there's inadequate pattern-matching, when you're explained the reason. Not my intention, just an observation.

    I'll think about that next time something's posted.

    I agree completely. This is a sale thread. Whining about what you don't like about an item posted is in seriously poor taste.

    Where's the bashing of others? There was - what I think - a genuine curiosity. No one here has bashed othertravel.
