Apparently asking why a suit that’s supposedly $8k looks incongruous because of the way it’s made and asking about it is “shitting on a thread” and “whining” and “bashing.” Jesus Christ.

Look, we get your side hustle is flipping stuff you find at your endless jaunts to Harry Rosen, Holt Renfrew, Brooks, warehouse sales, etc., etc., but you really need to develop a thicker skin if feel like my pointing out something obvious about your item has literally ruined all chances of you getting it sold.

There are plenty of places for candid discussion of the merits of a particular garment. A sale posting for that garment is not that place. If you can't see that, you can't be helped.

If I know nothing about suit construction and JUST CURIOUS about "why a suit that’s supposedly $8k looks incongruous", I would probably drop that seller a PM and ask him kindly.

the one posted on ebay store uses the old tag, suggests it's made at least 8 year ago? and it's used.

My initial reply was commentary than to spark a debate
Nonetheless, FWIW, I'd list Lobbs at $425 US obo on eBay, and accept $350 CAD for in person meetup. So we're in the same neighborhood

Much like my Isaia, where I'd accept $160 CAD for a local meetup, even though it's listed at $219 US on eBay (although I still question if I should raise that up)

Anyway, good luck with your sales

Any Canadian gents interested in my charcoal pinstripe (Fox Brothers) DB jacket from Turnbull Asser? DPD shipping to Canada included.
Truly the pinnacle of English RTW tailoring, sadly too big for me. Details in B&S.
