    Looks like a deal to me, if you buy used suits. St. Andrews makes a great suit, as has been discussed on this forum on numerous occasions. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....90&rd=1 Not associated with the seller. Don't know him or anything about him.

    Naldini is usually made with good fabrics and poor construction, there has been a number of threads about this, I wouldn't go with this brand at all.

    Lol... That's exactly how it looks. I can't stand 3 button suits whose lapel looks pressed right above the third button.

    I thought so too; when I picked up a Zegna Soft suit (which has bad construction and, well, bad fabric) it had a razor-sharp crease to the third button. 20 minutes in the steam from a shower and some creative ironing later, the crease was gone and the roll was almost acceptable, all the way down to the second button.
