Buying a suit online without having tried it on from a source that raises suspision regarding authenticity, somehow doesn't sound like the greatest idea...

Fake. Loads of things look off.

The cut of the jacket looks totally abnormal, like it's nipped in right under the armpits. The close-up of the shoulder shows some pretty poor tailoring. The drab lining and the clumsy work round the label are totally incongruous with a PS suit.

He's also sold a "Westbourne" suit with a "PS Paul Smith" label - AFAIK the Westbourne was Paul Smith London line, not PS.

Well I'll be damned. I had the 38S suit on my watchlist.

Thanks for the SF headsup!
