Is the $9.99 start price with BIN option a new tactic, or for a specific consignor?
 Wow, that's a huge difference. Out of curiosity, could you share your height/weight and possibly waist size of those trousers?
For those that order suits/SCs: do you find that there is a standard deviation of the shoulder measurement from a shirt to a jacket? Are they identical?

@Lanieri I forgot you had so many pop-up locations. Maybe I'll hit the one in Bologna while I'm in the region for vacation in a month.     Edit: On your suits/jackets, is the shoulder style, etc., customizable? I don't see options for that when ordering online, for example, heavy padding/structure vs. no padding.

 I cross-posted the question there as well. I thought this group would have some personal experience with these fabrics as well, so I cast a wide net. I've been able to eliminate and focus on a few different fabrics thanks to the efforts of both threads, so thanks to all those who indulged me.  Very well, removed from contention. I have not seen any of these in person, because (as far as I can tell) there are no bespoke or MTM tailors anywhere near my home (unless you...
 You caught me: this was a troll post attempting to poke fun at the extent forum members analyze their clothing instead of spending that energy on something more fulfilling. Not really, I just want a cool jacket.
