    Default Am I totally out of it, or

    is a $975.00 opening bid on a pair of USED men's breeches insane? Maybe it is just because I (proudly) ride an Econo-Nag!

    I'll have to be sure NOT to mark that as one of my "favorite sellers" on e-bay

    Does the date say 07/82?? Does that qualify as antique? Are they collectable or something? Either way, that is dumb.

    Those are custom made Hunt Breeches, definately not something you would see in the H/J world. Bespoke tailoring from Saville Road in London is VERY expensive. I'm not a Hunt person, but maybe those are more correct for the Hunt Ball rather than riding to the hounds.

    Depends. Do they come with the guy who wore them? What's he look like? Might not be a bad price...........

    ROFLMAO! I think any guy wearing these would look a little strange in our area - even in Lawrence!!

    Sisu - I pray 1982 isn't considered antique. If so, I'd feel REALLY old!

    True, but it's expensive (in part) because it is specifically tailored for that customer. What if it was tailored for someone with really odd proportions -- someone who HAD to get custom-made clothes?

    (Kind of like the Ariat breeches I once bought on-line, that seemed to be made for a 4 foot tall person with 30" waist but enormous belly.)

    You, too? After two pairs of Ariats with enormous waists, I've decided that Spongebob Squarepants is the company's fit model.

    Yikes I don't think you could pay me that much to wear them in public!

    Those are spendy. Must be nice to have everything custom like that.

    I don't think I would complain of someone wanted to buy these for me, though.

    You could get them made for a lot less money - just not on Saville Road in London. Using the fabric and design elements normally used for breeches, a typical tailor could make a pair of breeches for substantially less than those in the listing.
