I probably posted in the wrong area but here goes. I found a complete Austin Reed suit at goodwill and was wondering how much I could get out of it either here or posting on craigslist. Here are some pictures because I have no idea about this sort of thing.

About the same price you paid for it at the charity shop, no doubt.

R Suits currently retail at aprox £350.

Their construction is fused and the wools are mediocre. They are great entry level suits, but ultimatley they are a mass produced product aimed at the kind of guy who has to wear a suit for work and wants it as cheaply as possible.

B&S you'd be looking at something like $30. Ebay you may be able to get a little more with the right buyer, but ultimatley you're going to do better donating it to some kid for his first interview.

I hate to bump this but, is there a snowball's chance in whatever term there is any trade value in this suit? I posted something on CL but never know, someone here may want it.
