Good Ebay Price?

You can probably do better, if you're willing to look long long enough. But this is a handsome suit and well worth the $550. (And that's not taking into consideration the possibility of a lower "best offer" price.)

For NWT Corneliani pinstripes, I tend to think of $400 or less as a great deal. Solids in gray or navy are hard to come by NWT even at $600-$700.

For comparison, my best eBay buy was two Cornelianis, one NWT and the other barely worn, for $180. One was a coffee pinstripe and the other a navy pinstripe.

Bottom line is, if you like the suit and have the cash, it's a good price for a fine suit that will give you many years of service.

I like the suit, but can I do better on ebay if I keep looking for a while?


You can probably do better but how much is this suit worth to you? I would not insult the seller(though all Ebay sellers are quite used to being insulted), but I would make a low offer.

On Ebay, you never know. You might get lucky and get a similar suit for$100, or you might not see another one that you like as a much at this price for a while!

I agree with the DocHolliday post above. For $400 or less, A NWT Corneliani is a great value. At $300 or less it's a bargain, and at $200 or less, it's a steal!
