Pre-owned Canali suits on eBay cost anywhere from $70-200 on average. The cost of your suit + alterations would very likely be more than that.
+1. I learned this the hard way a while back and dumped way more $$$ into a thrifted suit to make it look just ok when i should have just flipped it and picked up a better fitting suit which needed less alterations in the first place (trying to make a 41L into a 40R/S was an expensive mistake)

And while I am too damn tired and sore to thrift this weekend I did pick up a new shirt
Thrift/mudder synergy is strong...i earned my shirt on Saturday as well...
I thrifted and posted this old barbour (pre-liddesdale?) about 6 months ago but thought it deserved a re-post...it was in rough shape when i og picked it up. 60% of the quilting coming undone, patch hanging on by one side but it was a barbour and i couldn't pass it up. Wore it for a few weeks in the fall then called Barbour CS to see if i could pay to rescue the piece.
Long story short I shipped my jacket to Barbour and they re-quilted the entire thing for FREE (re-wax is a different story from what i hear)...a bit weak on the CS communication but all in all i was shocked and happy that they stood behind their product. Will definitely be picking up any and all barbour i see no matter the condition
Still recovering from the mudder but a quick casual 100% thrift fit from mother's day
