    Found these on ebay, and I was wondering if anyone here had any comments on the seller or whether this was a good deal for a pair of incotex pants. I try to buy only when i percieve i have found a "deal" Unfortunately, I only know Incotex by reputation. Thanks for any input. Craig Ebay - Incotex pants size 32

    I've bought charcoal gray Incotex from seller "Jacobben" and find that his prices are about $50-60 higher than "Worlds Finest" and "Discostu004" (who is a member of Style Forum-see "Buying and Selling Section"). I bought similar Incotex slacks recently from "Worlds Finest" recently, also 150s, for about $200 recently. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....RFB:IID. There was a discussion a while back in "Buying and Selling" about the differences between various levels of Incotex trousers (with "Sartoriale" being the highest"). Although these pants are called "Sartorial", the Incotex pants I have from Jacobben don't seem different in quality from the Incotex "Worlds Finest" pants and are not marked "Sartoriale". I think that the Barbera pants have better fabric than Incotex and Purple Label is priced much less than either Barbera or Incotex. . These are nice trousers, regardless (notice all the pick stitching along the pockets).

    Thanks for the reply and the additional info. I am a young prof. just starting a "real" wardrobe, so it is always nice to gather new bits of info. I will wait and see if anything pops up that is a little better deal.

    I just bought a couple of pair of Incotex from him in Super 120s. His prices are a bit higher, but they are still a good deal. What was funny is all the identifying tags on my trousers were missing -- I know, though, they were Incotex as advertised because they had all the same features as my other pair of Incotex trousers. I think they are sartoriale because of the featuures.

    Could be that there is more finishing (the pick stitch). No Sartoriale label. My pants had a Barneys label in it.
