    Gents,

    I recently picked up a great greyish/tan Brioni (super 150)partially lined suit in a 42R (double vented, single pleats).  I love the suit but it really is too small for me and I need a workhorse more than I need this suit.  Here's the catch:  the suit is brand new and never worn but I got it at a discount because there are 3 small tears in the back that are in need of mending.  I was quoted a price of $150 CDN to get these tears repaired via invisible mending.  I will either keep the suit or put it on Ebay but I'd rather hawk it here if there is any interest.  I'll put up pics Tuesday sometime.  I'm hoping to get around $700 for the suit plus shipping but that may change due to interest (or a lack of).  This is about what I paid for the suit.  I'm in Toronto, if that matters.  

    I have not sold anything on Ebay but I have made purchases and I have a spotless record in purchasing items from a few forum regulars.  Thanks gents.

    Isn't $700 for a suit that has flaws bit too much?

    Not sure. With shipping, mending and the suit, still not a bad price. I don't know much about Brioni and the Toronto market but I think it's pretty hard to get a Brioni suit, after invisible mending, for well under $900. So far I've had a few inquiries so I guess the market will dictate whether the price is too high. If no one wants it, my dad will happily take it. BTW, MilanoStyle, know of any good places in TO to get suits other than the obvious ones? Thanks.

    I looked at the suit you are selling. There usually aren't many Brioni suits for sale at discount. It is very nice and if it had been my size I would have purchased it.

    Sorry for the delay and the quality of the pics. Â My friend and myself are not the most talented people with a camera. Â I hope this helps. Â First pic is the most accurate in colour and I would say that the pattern is more understated in real life. Â Sorry for the size of the pics. Â I'm still in exams. Â Feel free to e-mail or PM me. Â At this point, $700 of OBO if such an offer is reasonable. John is leading the pack with a bid just over $40 bucks [​IMG] [​IMG] http://img241.echo.cx/my.php?image=brionisuit0040pb.jpg [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'll post better pics, including pics of the pants, when I get a chance and take some measurements as well.

    .. sigh ..
    what did the suit do to deserve those scars ...

    BTw. Is that pick stitching that I see on back seam? I have never seen Brioni does this.

    Milano, not really pic stitching, just the sewing used to hold the back together. I will post better pics that show the detail as soon as I finish exams/papers this week. BTW, from the crappy pics, does it look like I could wear this suit? I'm a 42L and the suit is a 42R.

    I've noticed that Winners has been getting a fair number of Brioni suits lately. Which one was this from?
    BTW, I think the one in Woodbridge had a greenish suit in 44 or 46 if that's your size.

    I'm in Kingston right now and this was the only suit they had. I'm actually a 42L but thanks. It looks like I'm going to have to take a hit on this one. A case of my eyes being bigger than my stomach I fear.
