Thanks cbbuff,

Any idea how old the suit may be and how much it's worth paying?

Cheers

Difficult to tell the age but it is not outrageously dated and it is worth paying what you want to pay for a second hand suit.

Thanks GBR,

Anybody have an idea what the fit/cut is like on these suits? Slim? Sack?

Thanks

Surely depends upon the body that is to go inside it?

If they are not pinning it (which looks quite possible) then it looks slimish. The 32" waist is also encouraging if you want a slimmer fit. You could ask for a waist measurement on the jacket (@ the 2nd button). But there is always risk in buying a suit without trying it on. Only you can determine if you like it and if you can get it a a price that you think is worth the risk.

Thank you cbbuf, that's really helpful information.

I guess your right though, buying blind on the web is always going to be a risk.

I think I just wanted to make sure that firstly it wasn't a fake and that secondly if it didn't fit perfectly it would be close enough to tailor it.

I'll bid what I can afford to lose and hope for the best:)

Thanks to you it will be a more informed decision though.

Cheers
