    Jinkies, that surprises me - you'd know, though, as you're much more in touch with the current marketg than I am. Is that the average size for vintage fans, then? Is it to dowith a lot of folks getting into the vintage thing in their early twenties before, eh, middle age catches up with them as it has some of the rest of us? Not that I'm complaining, if it beings prices down for me. ;)

    Ouch! To be fair, you'd be looking towards that kind of money for an Old Town three-piece, though somehow I'd be less scared of wearing out one of those. It was a beautiful suit, though.

    ... actually, the fact that Marc thought it might be by Oviatt's probably explains the price he paid for it. :p

    I must be thinking of another suit, but I can't remember which.
     
  5. Anything north of about 42 and south of 38, the prices tend to go down, notwithstanding the odd outlier. 38 to 42 regular is where it's at; centre of the bell curve.

    Thanks for the correct HBK. So indeed one of those rare sporty Brit beltbacks.

    Ouch!

    Thats the reason why the market is slim. Many misunderstand the reason for the color wool cloth used .

    Marc's suit is amazing and is English made.
    then he just got another late 20s 4 piece plus four suit greatness in full donegal tweed.

    Actually, blatant thread pooping is kinda rare here on the FLounge.

    Mea Culpa...all in fun guys -no intent to "dump". :p
    Bear in mind this is from a middle-aged man who has never even owned a suit, much less worn one (I always feel like I am wearing my fathers clothes).
    I am a sartorial Luddite, no harm intended. Ignorance & fear of the unknown would be a poor rationale, but that's all I got. Sincerely sorry if I hurt anyone's feelings. N'k? ;)

    BS: My response to that suit can only reflect the title of this thread: Good God in Heaven!

    I wouldn't wear it, but you've got to love it!
