I was looking for a suit preferably in wool, any color with dots, not sure how to call it until I found one on ebay. It's a YSL. Never bought one before. How are they? Anyone?
Here's the link http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....STRK:MESELX:IT
Is it a good deal? Not sure...
Also I would like to know if there is a specific term for fabric with dots.

Well thanks for letting me know that you don't like it!! It doesn't answer my main question though. Did anyone buy a YSL suit?

YSL is not well thought of here, most of their suits are fused and not very high quality.

Rather bland in terms of looks. Not familiar with their tailoring.

Its hideous, possibly a fake and no to answer your question.

In Spain a lot of YSL shirts and suits used to be sold by Cortefiel. They were not expensive and nothing special. I guess that Cortefiel produced them themselves under some kind of license from YSL. Similar to what people do with Pierre Cardin, I guess. (I once had a couple of Pierre Cardin polyester suits. Cheap and sweaty).

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
