    Is it worth $100? Can you give me more info on the suit? I am told it is a "boardroom" suit but want to confirm that it is and that this is a good line. Thank you!

    By the way, please ignore the shirt and tie. I will not be purchasing either of those.

    There are experts who will have more to say but 'boardroom' is a good model in terms of quality.
    I am unsure of the tags but I would guess this is definitely not too recent by the black with white lettering and needle.
    There might be a thread with HF tag info in the forum if you search.

    Anyway, I will take a guess that people will say it is too expensive from the few times anyone asks about a used suit.
    If it is in great condition and it fits you well, you will live with the price. Do I think it could not be cheaper? Sure it could but so can everything, no?
    What is a fair price? I don't know...50 seems very low to me for something in very good condition so take it from there.
    Not sure if this one will but I believe most 'boardroom' models have it printed on the tag found inside the inner pocket.
    Ask for that if you like.

    Thanks for the reply. I actually just pulled the trigger at $80. I need a few more suits and I like the looks of this one. At $80, I don't see how I can go wrong.

    +1 gambit sums it up thoroughly. Emphasis on fit determining purchase.

    Wow, a true SF feather in my cap, +1 from MOL. Always so gracious and well mannered around the forums.
    I thank you.

    As for you, CBWill, good job. 80 is about as low as you can go. And if it fits and is in good condition, is that not a great value?
    Hope it fits you well.
    And if you ever obtain a shirt like that(or really, any black shirt, just skip them all with a suit), I will find you and smack some sense into you from across the internet.

    Good luck with the suit.
