    I bought this Kiton shirt for 32 euro ($48).
    Do you think it's a good deal?

    It's tough to say, because everything really depends on how used or worn the shirt is. My Dutch is limited to maybe one or two words at the most, so I apologize that I can't really read the listing. But my guess is that the shirt is used; if that's the case, you're gambling when you buy it. You're basically rolling the dice and hoping that the shirt is in like-new condition, or at least in a condition accurately described by the listing.

    two things:

    non full-disclosure (no detailed photos of key areas of the whole shirt, just the label, collar point)

    he is willing to let it go for that cheap.


    usually that means that you get what you pay for. good luck though i hope it is a treasure find but most likely not.

    thanks guys...
    the text is limited: it only says:
    collar size 16/41
    italian shirt

    see my other ad's blabla etc etc

    I know: it's a bit of a gamble: how is the state of the fabric, are there any stains (armpits ewwwwww etc)

    On the other hand: on that particular site, the demand for high-end shirts isn't that great and we Dutch are cheapskates so....

    Worst thing that can happen is you buy the shirt, it's in bad shape, and you haven't lost an incredibly large amount of money in the grand scheme of things. So in that sense, the gamble isn't too big. But it's still a gamble.

    Personally speaking, I wouldn't buy a used shirt. But that's just me. There might not be anything wrong with this one.
