    This is the classic Brooks Brothers Number One sack suit, the one that made Brooks famous, the one that defined Trad. I've had it for a few years, but it's too big for me now and it's time to pass it on to someone who can appreciate it. It's a great medium-heavy weight (probably around 12-14 oz) charcoal gray chalk stripe fabric. Brooks suits are hard to date precisely because the styles stayed so consistent, but I think this one is from around the late '60s. It's a gem - 3-pieces sacks like this aren't super common.

    It's in good condition; there are no holes, rips, stains, etc. The only issues are some places where the trouser waistband lining and the sleeve linings need to be restitched, but that should be an easy fix.

    $75 including shipping in the CONUS. Will ship elsewhere, too.

    There's no tagged, size, but I'm estimating it around 42R.
    Pit to pit: 22"
    Shoulders: 18.5"
    Length (BOC): 31"
    Sleeves: 25" with 1" to let down

    Vest chest, pit to pit: 21"

    Trouser waist: 37" with maybe 1" to let out
    Inseam: 31" with maybe 0.5" to let down plus 1.5" cuffs
