If it's that cheap, how would it fair qualitywise in the long run? Otherwise, if Burberry is indeed a good investment as I have read so far, I may just have to save up to get something off ebay when it turns up. I have been surprisingly pleased with the various bits...

What are my best chances for finding a good navy blue 2-button in a decent brand on a short timeframe?
