    Thanks,
    the new man.

    Don't let him fool you, he just discovered what happens when you search for "lingerie" on eBay.

    Fit is very important to me and manufacturers sizes vary so I wouldn't buy anything I can't try on first.

    I was going to buy a pair of jeans off ebay once but I was unsure of how the particular brand's sizes ran, so I just went to the store and tried on a pair of jeans of the same brand, found my size and then I was able to buy it from Ebay for cheaper. That may be a good idea if you plan on purchasing from Ebay.

    I still think you should try your clothes on before you buy them.

    If I were you I'd only buy brands that I already own, that way I know how their sizes run. Every company is different.

    The only problem with buying them on ebay, even if they are brands you know. You mite have people who sell fake name brands on ebay.

    I wouldn't buy clothes on e-bay, I like to try things on first.

    If you are set on "designer labels," try Ross or Marshall's, you can find some great buys.

    Hmmmmm....I buy you all kinds of stuff that you don't try on first.....

    I have had good luck with buying some cloths on e-bay. I generally stick to brands that I already know how the sizes run....

    TJ Max also has designer stuff great prices but you have to really shop them each week when the new shipments arrive.

    to add to it, different style pants within the same brand might require different sizes or cuts (flat front, pleated, whatever).

    i never buy clothes off ebay, i always have to try them on first or they just don't work out.

    when i'm dress clothes shopping, i'll stake out kohl's, jcpenny, etc etc....one of the big stores is almost always running a sale and you can get clothes for about 30% of their sticker price (which, of course, is WAY inflated).

    the ones i like best are the $55 dress shirt and $25 tie in a combo pack for $17.99...
