Men?s Fashion - Designer Suits

"Two thousand dollars for one suit?! Are you crazy? I don't have that kind of coin to spend on one suit! Yes I am well aware of the quality and that it is well worth every penny. I just can't justify spending that kind of money on one garment. Oh but I sure would love to have an Armani."

Rest assured if you hear yourself in the above comments, you're not alone. Countless businessmen would love to have fancy designer suits but their budget doesn't allow for it; champagne tastes on a beer budget ? understood! There's a way you can get one or more of these suits without costing you an arm and a leg. If you could buy one for anywhere from $15 to $300, and it wasn't stolen goods, would you? Read on.

Definitions on what makes a men's suit categorized as "Designer" may vary. One eBay seller's definition is "any brand of pre-owned suit that has sold on online auctions for $300 or more." She continues, "See for yourself. Do a search on completed auctions-MEN'S SUITS, sort High to Low in price and see what brands repeatedly come up."

Here are some of the brand names classified as "designer": Acquaviva, Barberini, Baroni,Belvedere, Brioni, Canali, Charvet, David Eden, Dolce & Gabbana, Enrico Venturi, Ermenegildo Zegna, Fendi, Gene Meyer, Gianni Manzoni, Gionfriddo, Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Hugo Boss, Leonardo Valenti, Luciano Carreli, Natazzi, Nino Bertini, Otello, Prada, Rossetti, Trussardi, and Versace.

Where are you going to find these suits? If you want to pay under $20, you're going to start hunting all the thrift/second hand stores. Yes you will indeed find them there, but you need to search. If you don't mind paying a little more, just go directly to eBay. They are out there.

If you opt to hunt for your own, here are a few simply tips for thrift store hunting. Don't expect these wonderfully made designer suits to jump out at you. And don't expect to find a boatload of them all in one place. It is truly a matter of treasure hunting.

Thrift stores, estate sales, storage unit auctions and garage sales will be your best hunting ground. Not to discourage you, but it won't be uncommon for you to look through 100+ suits until you might find one "good" one. The good news is that after you have a little experience under your belt, you will be able to whip through an entire rack of suits in mere minutes and tell just by look and feel which ones are even worthy of looking inside for the labels. Take your list with you and become familiar at which brands you'll pause and take a second glace.

You may need to have a circuit of approximately 10-12 second hard stores that you frequent hoping to hit the mother load. You you're intrigued in the quest, shop a minimum of once a week at each locale! Your efforts will pay off. But as mentioned above, if this is more work that you care to spend on finding a suit, you know the way to eBay.

Enjoy your new dashing designer suit!
