That's quite true. Especially since for men with larger waists they don't have the "just don't button it" option. And you can still get them from PJ's made to measure but it would be nice to know in advance in particular about lapel shapes which tend to vary a lot with peak and especially db lapels.

Suitsupply always has a couple too so that might be worth a look

The thing I dislike about suitsupply are the surgeon cuffs...so expensive to alter...i wish they did undone cuffs, that way I may actually buy stuff from then

Thing I hate is that they advertise and have no stock.

Is there a better value for money product than Uniqlo? I honestly couldn't think of one. The amount of beater-shirts I've bought from them over the year for ~$30-50 expecting very little, and yet they've held their shape brilliantly despite more whitewashes than an Australia top order.

My son lives in their stuff. He finds their fractional fits are real easy to wear.

The only off the rack brand I have tried which I quite liked (because it fits me) and is cheap and of decent quality is the beams/beams plus/united arrows stuff. U occasionally get them on eBay. I just bought an unstructured 3 patch 3 button beige linen and blue seersucker jacket for casual wear without a tie which looks dope

Not that impressed with the use of "camel/vicuna" to mean the colour.
Hi mate,

Agree - not my personal choice (cue excitement about fabric only to find it is regular wool) but what is quoted on the tag for the colour (may not be clear as tag slightly faded on the photo).

Cheers,
D

I would go further and report the auction as false advertising if I knew how (not keen on figuring out yet another rabbit hole of eBay UI).

Hi,

I'm going to assume that you didn't notice or read the above message I posted.

Fidelity refer to it as Vicuna colour per the original retail tag. The listing is very detailed and clearly includes the actual fabric composition (as well as the colour references per maker).

I don't think it is great either....but if that's what Fidelity has called it most potential buyers are going to be looking for that (and those with finer tastes seeking vicuna fabric such as yourselves are likely to be able to quickly distinguish).

In any case - I'll put an explicit note if I relist so that it is abundantly clear to everyone.

Cheers,
David

Hey David, thanks for chipping in. Nice listings (and lucky you living on the Northern Beaches - best part of Sydney!). I was actually looking for a duffle a few months back and this would have fit the bill.

As a potential buyer my first thought on reading the description would be to be annoyed and close the tab, no matter what the original issue was. I think clearer listing titles benefit the seller by making the sale more likely and the search more accurate (i.e. product more discoverable).

The word is only shown as a category ("Style: Duffle") and there are few details to key a search on. I'd think about relisting it as something like "Tan duffle coat, wood toggles, wool blend, Fidelity, BNWT, Large" or something. At least those are the details I was looking at.
