What would you consider a good price for an nwt Ebay Kiton suit?
Given that at retail they start at $4K, assuming it's not a run-off or an irregular, I say anything under $2K is a bargain.
If NWT, $1000-$1200 is a cheap, sell-it-quick price. $1500-$1700 is possible, but it may take a while.
I'd buy one for myself around $1K, maybe a bit more. I could not justify paying much more than that for RTW.
Are you serious? Entry level, better, suits start at $1K (Zegna, RL, Corneliani, Vestimienta, etc...).
Yeah but you can get Oxxford for $800, Canali for $600, etc, or even less. I see what Z is saying -- $500 for a knowledgeable forum member can go a long way.
Yeah, I haven't paid $1k for any suit I've bought on ebay, the only one I would consider shelling out that amount for would be an Attolini, as they don't seem to go for any less NWT. I would probably just run by Ian's place since it's half an hour away though.
All true, but keep in mind that Kitons are running $4800-$5200 these days, so $1500 is more than 70% off retail...
I still fear buying suits on Ebay, mainly fitting. If I were to purchase suit that costs over $1000, I would have to meet seller and try the suit on before I make purchase.
