    bad -- or bad-ass?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/BRIONI-Gray-Blue...QQcmdZViewItem


    Bad-ass.

    But only if you carry a magnum to shoot anyone who disagrees.



    Any opinions on this suit? I am looking to buy my first real suit for a wedding coming up!!

    Not very versatile.

    Might work for the wedding but won't be great for most occasions afterwards.

    Modesty forbids me to point out I have a couple of rather more versatile 38R/S suits currently for sale.... oh, would you look at what I did there... [​IMG] [​IMG]

    It has four buttons on the front, so it won't get much love here. It's a very busy pattern, too. If it's your first real suit, I'd suggest looking for something more conservative that can be worn to many events -- funerals, job interviews, etc.


    Thank you for your opinion! Im not a big fan of the 4 buttons either! I have a black suit already, but I don't want to be that formal for the wedding!!

    Ya I may end up doing something like that, but I am looking for a different color suit right now.

    Here's a good deal on a HSM

    I'm not affiliated with the seller, but it looks like a good deal. The inseam is a bit short for me though [​IMG]

    NWT 38R Brioni suit from Ben eHaberdasher ending in 4hrs and I suspect will stay below $500. The small damage is very minor.

    Saw it a couple of days ago, but its damaged...

    Not on Ebay, but this is a hot price for a NWT Caruso suit.

    http://www.luomovogue.com/store/raff...ogue-p-638.php


    I happened upon that site a few weeks back.
    They often seem to have very good deals on suits when their inventory is down to one size of a particular model, so it's worth checking back from time to time.
    Unfortunately, I haven't found a way to search by size and thus the only way to see if the cheap suits are your size is to click on them and check, which is a little cumbersome.
