So I thought this looked nice on ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120886482236#ht_6016wt_1378



Retail $2,200, asking $900. I made an offer for $600 and to my surprise it was accepted.

Then I finally realized "su misura" is the Armani MTM service - so this was made to someone else's specs right? How could it be new with tags? They allow someone to make a suit and then reject it once it arrives at the store?

Is this the same quality level as black label?

Not a surprise to me.

Perfectly possible. Or the customer never came to the store once it was finished.

Is this the same quality level as black label?
Hugo Boss Black Label? Yes. Giorgio Armani Black Label? No. I hate to say that but what you bought for 600$ is a fused, low quality suit with an expensive label made for the body proportions of someone else.
