    Up for sale is a beautiful tan donegal tweed two piece suit. The suit is cut from a heavy but loosely woven tan tweed with multi-colored knops, which both drapes and breathes well. Sufficient ventilation for three season wear. The suit features built up shoulders, nipped waist, a three-roll-two button stance, slash hip pockets and an unvented back. The trousers have a button fly, single button closure, belt loops and brace buttons inside the waistband.

    The condition is average. My alterations tailor has repaired all the moth holes I could find, several of which I have photographed, to make it wearable. Because of the speckled nature of the fabric, these repairs are well camouflaged. The biggest issues for the next buyer will be the sorry state of the jacket lining, with two large holes I have photographed, and the soiling to the trouser fronts. The soiling is, likewise, camouflaged by the nature of the fabric, and is concealed when one wears the coat or a tie, but it is visible upon close scrutiny.

    I have gotten a lot of wear out of this suit, but I have acquired a three-season donegal I like better, so to the Internet it goes.

    Measurements are as follows:

    Coat
    Shoulder to Shoulder: 18.5 inches
    Pit-to-Pit: 19 inches
    Waist (at buttoning point): 18 inches
    Sleeve length: 25 inches
    Coat length: 30 inches

    Trousers
    Waist: 16 inches, +2 to let
    Outseam: 43.5 inches
    Inseam: 31.5 + 1.5 cuff and 1 inch to let
    Rise: 12 inches

    Asking $100.00 plus shipping.
