    There seemed to be some interesting stuff on ebay today. This suit by Isaia I thought had some promise, especially at $199. Don't think I would have worn it as a summer suit, personally, but the jacket would make a great sportcoat and the pants interesting odd trousers, I think, for the country or the club maybe. It was a little too big for me, though.

    I did manage to to find an overcoat and a tux that should fit. [​IMG]

    Oxxford Super 150s tux (midnight blue, 44R):

    Sulka cashmere topcoat (44R):

    Needless to say, I think I passed my budget for the day. [​IMG]

    Yes and I love it. I wouldn't have the courage to wear it, but whenever I see a person wearing something that crazy with nonchalence it is the epitomy of style.

    I can't say I do. [​IMG] Those last two items are great finds, especially the dinner suit in midnight blue.

    It makes me think of Kramer...in a good way. The jacket by itself, at least. [​IMG]

    Thanks. It was at the limit of my budget (just under $600), but I think they run $3K retail (even though the tags say $4900...I'll never understand retail pricing [​IMG] ). The sulka topcoat was a steal, though, at $100, especially being 100% cashmere...so by spending more, I saved more. [​IMG]

    That may be the single ugliest suit I have seen since 1974 and the days of patterned double knit polyester.

    Actually, I thought it was kind of fun...and ugly in a jaunty way (speaking of the jacket as an odd piece...not the suit *shudder*).

    Reminded me a bit of some of the higher end 70s sportscoats and offerings from places like Pucci and some of the British sportswear makers during that time. [​IMG]

    So you're the one who bought my tuxedo! %[email protected]#%$#%$# [​IMG]

    Just kidding. I didn't have the cash for it anyway; you saved me $600. Let us know what you think when you get it. It looked gorgeous. Of course, if it doesn't fit...
