    Was thinking $450 OBO! [​IMG] lol but it actually is a really nice suit in a small size (still too big for me of course) so hope to break $100. Will prob be listed $9.99 NR next Sunday unless someone expresses interest in it beforehand.

    3pc Southwick suit, 3/2 roll & flat front, in my size 38R, after trying on and measuring looks like it would work better for a 36R.

    Is it benificial to categorize things as "vintage suit" on ebay rather than the regular men's suit category? I wonder if that has more people looking for unique vintage pieces in that category rather than the main one....

    Does anyone really search by category? I generally search all cats in case something was miscategorized. But thats's just me.

    I search generally and if there are a lot of results, I then narrow by category to the category with the most results. It's just too much of a pain to sift through a lot of results that are likely not relevant. So I'd search "Kiton" generally, then click "Suits" in the lefthand column. For vintage stuff, yeah, sometimes I do search specifically in the vintage category, because that's where the most relevant results are.

    Yeah, I quess I do that too. I never really considered I was "searching by category" when I narrowed the search with the left hand links, but now that I think of it, it does change the category in the search bar automatiacally, Duh
