What did you not like about the jv usa suit? A few models are actually cut well, just not constructed well of course.
My regrets are a plenty but I usually unload them here or on ebay (regarding purchases I made and past the window to return or exchange) so even at a slight loss I'm not burdened by it.
Those items I can't sell here and always regretted are these:
Full price Mani suit. 500 bux
Wore it to a couple weddings and a dozen interviews which got me a couple jobs including my current before I tossed it (mothholes from my last residence) so I guess it was worthy in that respect.
Gstar black mcarthur shipmate jeans 200 retail
Not that they're any bad but I could have gotten them WAY cheaper. That was when I was a denim newbie. 200 dollars for a made in PAKISTAN jeans. Well, I did wear them like 30 times so I guess it wasn't too bad.
Cole haan wingtips from gilt. Wore them once. They are hell on feet. Paid 200 sold them here for half that.
So many people stories I hear about their bespoke suit purchases ending up being regrets. Even their 2nd attempts or a try with another tailor. Goes to show how much bespoke is overrated here and rtw is underrated.
