    Hey,

    So I was on eBay and I saw a suit that I really liked and had my size. After low balling how much he was asking for it, he accepted my offer and I'm now in the process of paying for it. The thing is, I looked a bit into the company that made the suit and couldn't find anything on it and without knowing much about fashion, I really don't know if I got a decent deal on it or not. Anyone have any advice on if I got a decent deal or not? Thanks

    Figured out I suck at buying suits.

    I wouldn't buy random suits off ebay for any price.

    Well, you paid 150$(?) for a 70s poly blend suit. I can see if it's something to do with the size (unusually small), but in general you could have done much better.

    Shit,

    I should spend more time on this site but it seems like some people on here spend a lot of money on things like winter shoes and I thought this suit looked pretty fashionable even if it is vintage. Suits don't really change that much over time as far as I've seen but I could be wrong on that note

    Come on that's pure 40% silk, clearly worth the money.

    You give hope to the rest of us dumping crappy suits.

    "Normal" suits should be 100% wool. Linen or cotton is acceptable for summer suits. Synthetic materials should be avoided.
