I have a Navy Jos A Bank. Sign Gold suit, 120s wool, 2BT, double pleated trousers. 38R with 32 pants. Only worn twice. Looking to sell it for around $150. (Purchased for $380, but realize that once a year they can go for about $150, so I am selling at that price, currently they are at about $500)

I do not care for double pleated pants, this is the reason for selling. It is in perfect/brand new condition.

If there is an interest. I will pay Andy, and post it in the Sales forum and post pictures, for offers. I am not trying to by pass the normal process here. I just first want to see if there is any interest.

I very nearly moved this to Sales but I decided to keep it here. I have to get on the soapbox for a minute; it sounds as though you have a perfectly decent suit. The only reason you're selling it is because of pleats??

Thank you.

Yes, having just graduated, Jos A Bank was my first stop to get a suit. After the second wear I learned that I did not like double reverse pleats - at- all.

Called around to a few tailors and said it would be too expensive or too hard to change them to a flat front.

So as of now, this suit is just a perfectly good suit that is just taking up room in my closet.

Its a great buy for anyone who likes double reverse pleats.

What's so terrible about double reverse pleats? My personal preference is double or single forward, but reverse are nice as well. It just seems like a waste of money to get rid of it for such a trivial reason. Not judgin', just sayin'.

Thank you.

If it's only reverse pleats you don't like, you can have their direction reversed. I have done it at least four times on my own pants, usually right before sending them to the cleaners so they can press them. It's a simple enough operation and can even be done yourself, if you don't feel like spending the money on tailoring. While you have the waistband opened, you can even add a watch pocket, something I've done twice (I had extra fabric). In fact, If you like, PM me and I could do it.

Thank you for the help and advice, I really appreciate it.

I just wear flatfront pants. I actually tried to find flat front pants that matched the suit in order to save it, but couldn't.

So now I am just resolved to sell it.
