RLPL suit-cheap

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I happen to be on Newbury St. saturday and went into the used clothing store (i forget the name, second something, i think) and they were having a half price on everything except red tagged items, well I found a RLPL navy with light blue and purple pinstripes, SB, pleated, said 100% wool, but swore it felt and looked like a cashmere mix, working sleeve buttons, size 48 (im a 46, but could've swung it) looked to be altered but still fit and was very lightly worn, well the tag was $299, so for @ $150 I cldve had it, still thinking about going back and maybe throwing it on ebay for a little profit, isn't this suit over $2K new ?

The price depends who made the suit. If it is an older "˜Made in England' suit, it was made by Chester Barrie. It is a newer "˜Made in Italy'. Thus, a 1st or 2nd season suit retailed in the mid $1500's, whereas newer suits go for the mid $2000's and up. But that's all really irrelevant, because at the end suits made by either house are extremely well made and some of the best RTW money can buy. Even though it's used, if the suit fits you, feels relatively new, and has you thinking about going back to buy it. BUY IT. Jon.
