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.

    5) STUNNING Donegal Tweed by Magee--Made for Mullarney Bros. of Co. Sligo!

    This is absolutely STUNNING!! Cut from handwoven Donegal Tweed, this wonderful jacket is a serious rarity, being both a three-buttoned tweed, and a handwoven Dongela that's a puppytooth.. with a fantastic colourway, being a slateblue and peat black puppytooth flecked with gorse yellow, moss and forest greens, pumpkin orange, and berry red. This Donegal easily rivals the more complex Harris tweeds, and is both striking and subtle. A really wonderful tweed, with great texture and a fantastic colourway! It was woven by one D. Hood, who has signed it.

    The jacket does the tweed justice, too. Made by Magee, the main maker of Donegal tweeds, in Ireland, this is a rare three button jacket, featuring side vents and three button cuffs. It is half canvassed and fully lined, and the tweed is a wonderful substantial weight. This relaly is a fantastic jacket for the Fall, Winter, and early Spring!

    12) Brooks Brothers Makers Brown 3/2 sack suit.

    This is very, very nice indeed--and if you don't have a brown suit in your wardrobe yet, why not? A lovely 3/2 sack in a flannel-esque cloth, this was custom made in 1994. It has the classic two-button cuffs, a single center vent, a lovely lapel roll, and a half-lining. The brown colourway is wonderful--rich and earthy, with the very hint of damson in its depths. No "farmer brown" suit here! The trousers are flat front and cuffed. This was Made in the USA, and is in excellent condition, although it is slightly rumpled from shipping to me.

    Asking just $65, or offer.

    Measurements:


    Chest: 22 1/4
    Sleeve: 24 1/4 (+1 3/4)

    Length: 30 3/4

    Waist: 18 1/2
    Inseam: 29, with 1 1/2 cuff.
