    In the question and answer section, the seller has measured the pants as having a waist of 34-36", and an inseam of 27"! That doesn't seem very likely.

    I guess these items might make sense to a Ewan McGregor fan, but they don't do anything for me. But note that the seller started with a low start price and there is no reserve. So this might be a case where the market truly will determine the value!

    She calls it a suit, but the length and styling of the coat appear to be an outer jacket.

    How come the pants look tan, and not the green color as pictured?

    The $72 price seems about right for some boring clothes.

    !


    remember that TB likes to cut his trousers really highwatered so that would make sense

    and no, I'm not bidding [​IMG]

    The inseam does make sense. Keep in mind Ewan isn't considered very tall (5'9 or something) and as stated, Browne's signature is his high hemmed trousers. EDIT: Looked up his height, most everywhere says 5'10.5, which seems to make sense. What bugs me is that this is being sold as a "suit" and not a light overcoat and odd trousers, which is what they really are. If they were selling one of his actual suits (like the one in my avatar) I think there'd be a little more interest from the Browne afficionados. I might consider bidding if it's going this low. Not to wear said items, but display them. More like a geeky, "My favourite actor wore this," sort of thing. [​IMG] kitonbrioni: Did you even look at the listing? Sure, they're "ordinary" khakis, but last I checked pretty much everyone here has a pair, including yourself, no? Also, you can see in a close up shot (which I couldn't see when I rented the movie) that the overcoat is a nice charcoal herringbone.

    judging from the pictures and the measured waist, I woudn't call him "slender" by any means except maybe american standards.

    Who called him slender? I may be, but as I said I wouldn't wear them if I won.

    Eh. You can still be somewhat slender with a 38" chest and 34" waist.

    Get Smart: I second that. I really liked those cardigans. I wonder if anyone else is selling something similar.

    I saw that TB varsity cardigan on ebay earlier this year or end of last....I remember it sold for quite a bit, and it was in my size.

    JCrew had a varsity sweater last fall that was very similar. Doubt they will have it this season since they seem to be moving away from "preppy" into "GAP-y"

    Hmm, bidding is up to only $90 now and there's four days left. I'm going to be watching this auction closely.
