    There is very little to justify buying it.

    LOL @ the honesty. Thanks.

    BTW it will only cost $50. Shipping is free. Not that it would cost $50 to ship one state over from NY to NJ. But then again you are from Germany so your ignorance is excused (although I doubt the same courtesy would be extended to me as we Americans are always viewed by others as being ignorant slobs).

    Clearly you are an ignorant slob:

    Read the text:

    lower $ Joseph Abboud 3 Button 36s 30 Grey Gray Suit Wool See original listing
    Image not available
    Item condition: New without tags
    Ended: Jun 16, 201220:40:31 PDT
    Sold For: US $50.00
    Shipping: $49.99 USPS Priority Mail International
    Item location: Forest Hills, NY, United States

    That seems quite clear. Your fire will therefore be of $100 as clapeyron suggests.

    Why are you people so angry? Oh. I'm a "noob", right? This is the initiation period? Thanks for the welcoming party. I'm a 36 year old man who has gotten this far on his own w/o the assistance of know-it-all snobs. So I'm pretty sure I can get along just fine the rest of the way w/o your assistance. I did want honest opinions, but I guess I should have expected the vitriol responses.

    And perhaps you (GBR) should learn how to read. Expedited shipping within the US is free via USPS Priority Mail. No need to be a jerk off. Not everyone is independently wealthy and can afford to spend thousands on custom tailored suits. So back off asshole.

    Abboud suits that are sold by JC Penny etc and those that are found at Tux rental places are pretty bad made in china suits. But, the ones made in the USA are pretty decent half canvas pieces. $700 retail is a bit much by SF standards, but not crazy.

    Now there is a pleasant response. Not curt. Isn't talking down to me. Not thumbing his nose at me. I appreciate that. Not sure how much it helps me personally, but at least it was a reasonable response. Thank you.

    Guys:

    This is a brand new member. You should have noted that and been more diplomatic in your responses.

    Joseph Abboud can make a very nice off the rack suit. Nordstrom has quite a few on sale as we speak.
