SOLDHere's an odd duck. J Press (SF-era) navy three-piece suit made of hopsack or something very like it. Hard to say if a blend or not. Shrugs off wrinkles pretty easily.

No issues that I can see, other than a musty smell which I will deal with.

Jacket is 21 pit to pit = 42; right sleeve 24 1/2; left sleeve 24 3/4; shoulder 18; length from top of collar 32 1/4.

3/2 sack, half lining, single vent.

That length should make it a 42 long, more or less.

But get this: trousers, flat front, no cuffs, unlined: waist 18 1/2 = 37 (plus one); inseam 28 (plus 3).

That's not exactly tall, but if you let the pants out...

Vest is 22 " long down the back and 17 1/2 inches wide between first and second buttons from the top.

So all in all this would be a terrific deal for someone, somewhere, and I will send it to you for a paltry $85 CONUS (of which $25 will be shipping). At that price you could ignore the pants and vest and convert the jacket into a blazer. This is the rare instance when that would work.

By the way I have bowed to the realities of middle-age spread and limited storage space, so there will be a steady drip-drip-drip of items over the next few weeks.
