Ok guys, here me out.

I'm trying to gauge the interest in custom tailored suits by mail. Like, buyer sends his measurements and a front and side photograph, selects colors for the suit and the lining on a website, along with buttons, cuts, etc, and then has a suit delivered to their home or office, 3 or 4 weeks later.

Probably in the $350 or $400 price range; basically, you could go to jc penny, find a suit and have them take up or take down the pants and sleeves, or spend the same amount and have something tailored specifically to your liking. Other places, like men's wearhouse, etc, we'd generally be much cheaper than, especially considering quality for the price.  The issues I see are the turnaround time (3-4 wks), so no instant gratification, and the inability to actually touch the materials until delivery. I'm not sure how much of a hangup that second part especially would cause for potential buyers.

So I'm asking you, bitcoin community, would you be interested in purchasing suits, slacks, sport jackets and/or ties for bitcoin? Or are you more content going to the store to purchase them with dollars?

Please let me know your thoughts...

I like the idea, but I'm nervous to buy a pair of dress slacks online because they always have something about them that I don't like -  whether it's the sissy button or a weird fit somewhere.

I might just be picky though.  The only clothes I buy online are T-Shirts and sports jerseys.

I have a grey pinstripe suit I'd like to sell for bitcoin...

Saying that you don't trust someone because of their behavior is completely valid.

Yes, sorry to say I can't compete on price if you're flying to Asia...

As for shipping internationally, it'll add time and expense. Ler me look into it a Little, as I've never shipped anything internationally before. What country are you talking about?
