Would you take the chance buying a jacket and pants from two different sellers hoping they will make a suit?

No way. If they don't match, are you comfortable using the jacket as sport coat?

It's possible.

I recall member SkinnyGoomba doing it recently.

Ask for pics of the tag and make sure fabric/color numbers are same.

I am in the opposite end to many members here. For me, if you think it's possibly a good deal, buy first, think later (remember your wholecuts?). If things don't work out, you can always sell back. You may lose a bit, but at least never regret that you didn't try. I rather lose some money than always wonder.
