    IMO seems much to big to be a 46r.

    I agree, according to the tag and measurements.

    Also, the suit doesn't seem to be in good shape, I can see pulls and snags. Probably because it's Super 150 which doesn't weather wear and tear well. Another example not to buy or commission anything higher than S 120.

    Take care of your garments and these generally won't happen. The Diamante fabric is less fragile than has been bemoaned. koji

    I've owned some nice suits and jackets (and have paid a lot more than 455 for them, retail). I've never owned a Kiton of that quality though. How fast do they wear? How likely are you to get something less than you expect on Ebay?

    I've had mine for over six years now (an amazing Ebay purchase) and it's held up beautifully through many, many concerts.

    Did any SF members bid?

    It's definitely a bargain at $455. It is so because the seller mis-listed the size. The tag says size 60 and chest measures 52", so it's definitely a size 50 not 46.

    I was going to bid somewhere between $350 and $400, then flip it on eBay with the correct size listed.

    Any big-chested members here?
