    Saint Andrews 40R NWT peak lapel tux. $625 BIN ($469.75 with live.com 25% discount). Just typing that price makes me want to buy it, but I've got a new Isaia that I've only worn once and my wife would kill me if I bought yet another piece of formal wear!

    (I hope I'm pasting the link in correctly. Can anyone point me to a tutorial on tips and tricks for putting in links, photos, etc? Thanks.)

    Sharp Ede & Ravenscroft suit. Looks like the bidding war has started.

    It's overpriced for used Ede which is nothing to get too excited about - reasonable quality, not much more.

    That's my take as well.

    Is it a jacket or a hang-glider? [​IMG]

    Fooooooooooooook Me. This is sweet. And I think I could bring it in a bit to have it fit me. But I lead a life currently that does not make something this cool very useful. But for $300 w/ 25% cashback....

    NWT Tyrwhitt covert coat in 42R with an opening bid of $99. Seller calls it black, but I'm guessing it's the charcoal version.

    And another covert coat, this one used, for $400 BIN or best offer.

    I have the Tyrwhitt. It is very nice looking, but not very warm. I would certainly think of it as a lighter weight coat suitable for a warmer Winter day or a cooler late Fall day. However, it has a certain elegance. I think anything up to $250.00 would be a good deal.

    I noticed most of you guys highlight the suits that are in the low 40's sizes. Keep an eye out for us bigger folks and if you see something in a nice 50L, please feel free to post it [​IMG]

    just wondering, what size pants come with a suit that size? / nm, I see on ebay. I also checked for that size in suits on ebay and there is a sh*tload of quality stuff.... way more than 40R/42R and priced very well.

    Thoughts on this? How is the price? Reasonable?

    Nice looking suit. Notice that they didn't populate their measurements section in the auction, so you might want to e-mail them and ask for the measurements. I'm sure someone else can tell you if that tag is a Saint Andrews tag or not. It does look like that tag is for a different size however. Don't forget to go through live.com to get $200 cashback if you buy this.
