    Currently I've been using Raffaello-Network.com to buy most of my clothes but there prices are a bit high. A few months ago I bought a Versace shirt from another Yahoo store for almost 85% off of MSRP and compraed it to one I bought at Rafaello-Network and realized that I can get the clothes cheaper online. Unfortunantely I forgot the name of the company and sent a money order so it's not on my statement. Does anybody know where I can find Designer clothes, mainly Versace for cheaper prices. I want to find someone who's as reliable as Raffaello-Network but I'm getting tired of paying over $300.00 a shirt when I can get the same thing for $75.00-120.00. If anybody can help me I would gladly appreciate it.

    OH and all authentic clothes none of that replica bull**** and not Ebay.

    bluefly and Ebay

    I wish that bluefly would provide measurements though - it would make sizing easier. That's the one thing I like about Ebay clothes.

    I've been visiting bluefly to peruse their inventory every once and a while for about 6 years but have never actually bought, but it seems like a solid site. I just end up making the drive to an outlet mall to a Sak's Off 5th on the rare occasion I need something that nice (ie. new tie for a dinner or whatnot). Given my larger body size, I wouldn't trust buying Eurofashion online, where some Italian company might have an American medium listed as XXL.

    My wife has bought some things from www.overstock.com and although the transactions were fine, the indicated colors were way off on the housewares we bought (some were returned).

    I looked at those sites. Their stuff is at least 2 or 3 seasons old, and is priced at retail. The supposedly retail price they listed are way over inflated. Just catch a sale at the boutiques when they have seasonal sales.

    Yeah, and not only that, Bluefly rarely ever has the style I want in my size...

    Same reasons as posted in the above, I haven't bought any clothes over on-line yet. Euro size is truly weird as the same size by the same brand may differ in actual size if the released year or designers (w/in the same brand) are different.

    BTW, I met this lady who told me my tie I was wearing was 1999 Versace design. That freaked me out. I never cared of "vintage" of clothes before! I didn't even realize these design could be different every year. She said there're so many "outdated" brand clothes worn by people. To some of you fashion conscious guys here, do you guys pay attention on the year of clothes you buy?

    Colour me lucky as my body dimensions are nearly PERFECT for the Italian designers. D&G and Armani, for example, nearly fit me perfect off the rack(!). As for the year/fashion, generally buy classics so a dark navy suit is a dark navy suit. Same with shoes, etc. Yes there are moments where i may opt for a smoking jacket or something else a bit "outrageous," yet generally these are "classic outrageous" too.

    Besides, the way 99% of Americans dress... most are clueless about this year, last year... Hell, look at what is "in style" today and then look back a few decades... Anything look familiar to you?

    I appreciate all the input. I like Bluefly but it doesn't have Versace which is mainly what I am looking for. I got some input at another website to try ArmaniExchange so I bought around $600.00 worth of stuff from them. The prices are very low and you're buying direct.

    I still want some Versace however and was wondering if anyone could still direct me to a website like bluefly with Versace. Doesn't matter what season it is.

    I like Versace too and I'm still looking for a good site. Raff Network is okay but they have a lot of the funkier Versace stuff and they're just as high priced as going to the store. At the store though... I get to try things on. :D
