    Hi,

    what do you think about this?

    http://cgi.ebay.de/B10-ORIG-BRIONI-S...QQcmdZViewItem

    It would me my first Ebay buy, but the jacked is the same size as the Briony jacked I bought once at full retail and that I hardly ever wear because I am afraid it will get damaged.

    It says in the ad: Full retail is 2190 Euro, he wants 329 Euro.
    Any opinions from looking at the pictures?

    Congrats. I'd urge you to wear your full retail one as much as possible too.

    While naturally you might want to avoid foul weather, I think the best respect you can give to clothing is to wear it into the ground.

    Congratulations, as well.

    I mentioned this in another thread, but I suffer from the 'don't wear my nicest stuff' syndrome, too. I keep wanting to protect it somehow. I'm trying to do better! [​IMG]

    So here it is. It's pretty nice although I knew beforehand that I need to have the sleeves altered. After I unpacked it I inspected it carefully to make sure it really is Brioni. I found quite a number of small imperfections but when I looked at my other Brioni I found just the same imperfections. Handmade I guess.
    So I do thank all of you here since I got the idea of buying rather expensive clothes on Ebay from you. [​IMG]
