    What clothing-related items do you purchase most frequently on eBay?  And for what items does eBay offer the best savings compared to brick-and-mortar stores?

    Dress shirts, but in large part b/c (i) it's so easy to know you're getting the right size/fit; (ii) there are often such incredible deals on EBay on used shirts; and (iii) one doesn't have to spend alot of money to get a nice dress shirt (I can buy 7 or more used Borrelli shirts for the price I'd pay for a nice, used Brioni suit.

    I mostly buy suits/blazers on ebay, I have gotten some decent deals on shirts though.

    I order all of my suits and sportcoats on ebay, nowadays. I try to buy borrelli shirts there, as well-- the hardest things for me to find are trousers (medium weight, 33 or 34 waist incotex or oxxford) and neckties (buy them occasionally, but only in basic colors as it's hard to match them to clothing without seeing it first)

    Suits at 95% off retail--how can you beat that?
