I guess I am very lucky that my measurements are a very standard off the rack 42R. Thus, I have had great success buying suits and sports jackets off of ebay. In the last 45 days or so I have picked up: 1 Zegna pin stripe suit; 1 Tom James plaid suit; 2 Evan Piccone (1 window pane, 1 striped); 1 R. Lauren gray suit; 1 black camel hair blazer 1 Canali black blazer 1 Zegna DB blue blazer In other words, 5 suits and 3 blazers. I have been satisfied with all but the Canali black blazer (it was advertised as blue, but, it is also nice on it own merit). Of course, I have had to have the sleeves lowered or raised on a couple of the jackets and hems changed on a couple of the trousers. However, all told, a nice little collection for well under $400. Yes, the stuff is not always pristine in its newness. For example, I had to replace a button on one pair of pants and there is a obvious wear on the inside lining of one of the jackets (but not noticeable absent a serious search). But, again the price is hard to beat. That being said, if your size is not off the rack, this is not likely to work for you.
