    but no one bought it at that price, or probably only one.

    Saying if one item is 50% off and sold out, porter still change it to further discount even inventory is 0.

    Only one or two lucky boys get it at the final markdown, but really you cannot hope it. That's just someone returned and there's no guarantee your size will be available and you can get it.

    You know things that cheap will gone in seconds.

    +1. It's all dependent on fit. Expensive RTW that fits perfectly can't be beat.

    Should I wear a tweed jacket to an upcoming dinner party?

    There will be no bigtimers there so I don't expect the host or anyone to be wearing a smoking jacket or some velvety smooth jacket.

    ^ I wonder if this forum shares the sentiment of taking any opportunity to overdress?

    No. It simply recognizes that everyone else is underdressed.


    ;)

    Ah.

    But you see tweed at night would not be overdressing to the forum. It would be lazy and sloppy and possibly gauche in a devil may care way on the right person.

    Just wondering if tweed would be too twee?

    Agreed, tweed would be too informal for a dinner party. But as the newbie consequently pointed out, most will think you are being over dresses, so go for it. You can secretly snicker to yourself, in regards to your slovenly appearance :D
