    Hello all!
    I've had this for a short while- I figured I would have it altered so it would fit me, but I decided I should just let go of it instead.
    This one is incredible!! 4 patch pockets, all vented. Fabric is a wool gabardine with a "flannel" finish- it's a fuzzy gab, in short.
    Dropped hollywood waist, big notched lapels, peach-colored lining, hand tick stitch all down the collar, lapels, and front edge of the suit jacket.
    Absolutely stunning item in a classic "camel" color.
    It does have two small holes (shown) on the right side, down by the pocket. It also has a few faint smudges up on the shoulder (left.) I have NOT had this cleaned- I am pretty confident those smudges will come out. A few small spots on the left pant cuff, inside area. Looks like mud or coffee?
    Suit is about a size 43 Long. Check my measurements:
    Shoulders are 20in across from seam to seam. Pads stick out a bit beyond that.
    Chest is 23in across from pit to pit.
    Sleeves are 25-1/2in long from seam to bottom of cuff- this includes the roll over the shoulder pad.
    Body is 33in long from base of collar to bottom, down the back.
    Pants are 34in across the waist, on the _outside_. You could safely let out about 3 inches.
    Inseam is 32in long with 1-1/2in cuffs. There really isn't anything to let out.
    Belt loops sit about 3/4in from the top edge of the pants.
    I am asking $200, obo, on this suit.
    Please PM me if you're interested.

    Never heard those pockets called vented...always thought of them as pleated.

    No luck selling your stuff on Etsy? I'd swear the market has been down for years now....

    Strangely this year it has been real slow. Unless its the obvious amazing piece nobody wants anything.

    Stunning suit indeed! If it were 2 sizes smaller, I'd snatch it up. Are people sleeping?

    Sorry guys, there is a little wiggle room on the price, but I can't sell it for less than what I paid....

    Ok - I put my dibs on that... because the size appears to fit me. The trousers are exactly my size... and with a 34 inch waist, I wonder if this really is a US 43 and not rather a drapey, comfy fitting US 40-41.

    Anyway I'll send you a PM with some questions about measurements, price and shipping, dakotanorth.

    Cheers
