    Hi guys, I picked this up on eBay for $170. What do you think? I liked the stand up collar [​IMG] New with tags. ( 60% polyester, 40% spandex. -- I might end up hating it. ) [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I prefer not to reveal my ebay identity. I hope this does not offend.

    Nice jacket, but the seller isn't truthful about prices. For instance, they are selling Joseph Abboud dress shirts claiming they retail for $320 (when they are actually $95 or less) and Boss: Hugo Boss sport coats - not full suits - and says they retailed for $1750 (more like $500).

    I for one like the look of it. Let us know how it fits/feels. 40% spandex seems like a really high number to me, so I'm curious as to the results.*

    The price is great (good ebay hunting), although the same jacket went for 152 a few days ago.

    *I tend to stick to natural fibers, perhaps irrationally.

    I would bid on a few of your items, except they aren't my size [​IMG]

    I would hope the jacket really did cost $2,050 though because I don't think they would fake the tag. (In the case of the Abboud items, he/she claimed cost $300 but he/she did not show tags that said $300.)

    Why would you want to bid on any of my items? I'm trying to get rid of them for a REASON.

    Well, one of the coats looked nice for the price - especially good for wearing to class on rainy days.

    Thanks. I'll report back when I receive the item. Like you, I prefer natural fibers, but certain looks and styles can only be achieved by artificial fibers unfortunately.

    Looks nice.

    The tag may be deceiving though. Don't ever assume that the price on a tag is in US dollars unless the tag is from a US retailer. This looks like a sample - a nice design.

    There's no way on earth that jacket sold anywhere for US$2050.

    Also: I am skeptical about that seller's assertion that his items are "New With Tags". Certainly they're not new with their original hang tags in many cases, which - unless they're samples - means they're probably used. I also think it's a bit deceptive to sell even new things as "New With Tags" when the only tag is your own.

    Emporio Armani casual jacket for 2 Gs? Sounds rather dubious.

    That tag is not original. Note the shape which is of those ubiquitous tags of the antique stores. Emporio Armani uses a large rectangular tag with a small booklet like flap to cover it. Similar to Giorgio Armani's tags. The jacket probably retailed around $400-$500. Example this "NWT Armani Black Label Armani jacket." [​IMG]

    I look a bit more into his/her auctions and all the price tags look the same for all merchandises. Hemmmmm?

    One auction catch my attention though: S/He get an Armani black label blazer for $199 starting bid, $299 BIN. Does that look real for you guys? It does have stacked, kissing buttons to begin with.
