    Last night I found this on e-bay, the forum was down so I consulted Versaceman and he said it was a good deal so I went ahead and got it. Whats the general consensus here regarding Versace suits? I believe this is from a newer line and most likely top of the line, hopefully canvassed. Anyone out there know anything about Versace suits? Also one other reason in me getting this is that 34 is hard to find size, as some of you know [​IMG] hmm..might help if I included a link http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=3960397576

    Well, the best news is that it was only $200. It looks nice to me but I know nothing about Versace. I say, don't worry about all that stuff, just try it on and if you can wear it for a year or two, you've definitely gotten your money's worth, yes?

    True true. But when obsessing over clothes, i'm sure you ask your self the same questions [​IMG] But yeah, it's only $200, no biggie.

    There's a little shop under Oak St. in Chicago that sells Versace. I never find anything I could wear, but they seem pretty well made. Usually around $2K.

    Are Versace suits generally fused or cavassed?

    I'm crossing my fingers it's the latter, hopefully someone knows.

    I have an older versace suit which is canvassed. I think a lot of their newer/cheaper suits are fused and don't seem to be the best quality. For $200 you're not getting a bad deal either way, as the fit and styling is very good imo (or i could have been really lucky..)

    I'm so small, i'm sure I can even fit a 15" chest if that's what it really is.
