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.

    As someone expressed interest in this recently, I have come to the unfortunate realisation that I don't know when I will get the chance to wear this. So it is up for grabs.

    Custom made by Ravi's Tailors. I am between a 38R and 40R in suits.

    From middle to bottom is approximately 23 1/2 inches.

    Across shoulders it is 14 inches

    Across bottom it is 19 1/4 inches

    Order info:
    · Fabric: Medium Weight Alpaca Wool Blend (#128)
    · Color: Light Grey (ca)
    · Requests: Lining: Camel
    · Accessories: Authentic Hand-stiched Lapels and Pockets
    Italian Designer Silk Lining

    $57 (includes shipping in Continental USA)

    This one shows the closest colour approximation

    Lining is sort of a shade of gold/camel...silk

    Great looking vest, just slightly too big for me or else it would be mine.

    Yeah, every time I think about wearing it it is either too hot or ends up too contrived. Wish I had more opportunities to wear it...

    I might be interested, but I'm unsure on how a vest is supposed to fit, even after reading the current waistcoat thread over in Men's Clothing. I stand about 6 ft 2 in - would this vest be too short for me or just right?

    Not sure to be honest. I am about 5' 10" and it fits me well length-wise.

    I am very interested...just two questions:

    - Would you be so kind as to post the width from the botton of the left to the bottom of the right armholes across the chest?

    - Are the buttonholes hand-embroidered?

    Thank you.


    Regards,

    - B


    Regarding the buttonholes, the back looks irregular so it is possible that they were hand finished, I am not certain.
    It is 20 inches across.

    It looks to be a nice vest. I was the one asking - I was toying with the idea of wearing a stroller outfit to a friends wedding. As an aside, I was looking on ebay for vests, and you wouldn't believe the number of leather vests being modelled by muscular Tshirted men [​IMG]
