    Sorry, but I had to post this. I saw this Canali sportcoat listed for $250+ on eBay and was just angry. Then it sold. For $230. Gentlemen, we've lost the war. How the hell does this happen?

    Here's an excerpt from the seller's description: "You are bidding on a magnificent CANALI sportcoat..size i50(measures at a 40 regular)..fully lined..brown black and cream tweed with a hint of gray..the shoulders show as oversized in the photos ..they are not..please use the measurements for accuracy..versatile and gorgeous!!"

    So someone is selling a rather fluffy Canali jacket on Ebay, and the OP is angry about it? WTF!! Just need to relax a bit more mate.

    I'd say it's very overpriced though, but then that's Ebay vendors for you. And it's not exactly "magnificent" or "gorgeous!!", but again this is typical for Ebay.

    My main complaint would be that, along with the rather tasteless fabric, it also has a very low buttoning point and the "drooping" lapels that were popular in the late 1980s and quite a bit of the 1990s. In other words, it's quite old and looks rather out of date.

    It probably represents a symbol of the buyer's individuality and belief in personal freedom.

    Now I don't normally take much notice of whether lapel gorges are low or high...but Tom Cruise...oh my!! ...and what's with the no-tie thing?
