interesting responses. to those who were hesitant to buy things on ebay due to the variance in sizes, etc. i would respond that if you knew the brand name, couldn't you try on something similar in a department store, to be sure? or, if you had the chest, shoulder, waist measurements, wouldn't your tailor be able to adjust most clothing to fit you, anyway? if you're a 38R.... http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...item=947844618 or a 41-42R.... http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...item=947254395 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...item=947514060 or about a 44R.... http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...item=946120532

Sure, it helps to know how a designer tends to cut. Also, considering that I always need the pants taken in on my suits, and often prefer to have jackets nipped at the waist, I see no reason not to take "bargain" purchases to my tailor to have it done. I still end up saving plenty over buying retail. I love it when clothes fit perfectly off the rack, but that sure doesn't happen every day.

the ebay discussion continues. here are just a few more ideas, which may support the idea of ebay being a good source for occasional great finds: Attolini jackets: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...item=945838679 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...item=945838928 Kiton: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...item=947921609
