no clue what these things cost, but bottom line, they are pretty crappy. From what i magine, you are talking about wool blends (to be stretchy for that tight fit), poorly constructed, too short, etc. If you like the tighter shorter suit idea, I would look for a new or slightly used jcrew ludlow on ebay. The quality of materials and assembly are better and it will just look and feel a whole lot better.
