    I'm looking at the following auction on Ebay, and any assistance would be greatly appreciated: Ebay Auction The thing is, the measurements they provide are pretty good (although the pants need to come in a little -- always the case), and I like the color and windowpane as something different from the suits I have, but the picture tells nothing of what the jacket actually looks like. Does it look like a potato sack to anyone else? Are measurements and a quality name like St. Andrews enough to go on?

    Looks great to me. Hardly a potato sack. St. Andrews makes a wonderful suit. Highly qualified EBay seller.

    Definitely looks like a nice suit. The potato-sackness is probably just from the way it's on the hanger. It would take a very very skinny suit to show waist supression while hanging in that fashion.

    I agree with the above posters, looks great.

    edit: i wonder why the seller listed it like he did. makes it almost impossible to find with a search, unless you're browsing by size.

    man, maybe I shouldn't have put it up on this board.... I might have given the seller some free advertising and myself some new competition [​IMG] thanks for the advice. I'm not really sure what I'm willing to pay for it, but I don't see nice suits in my size come along on ebay very often

    Kabert asked about this suit on a previous post, but I don't see his bid.
