What's retail on a fairly recent / current Tom Ford suit - like $6k +/-?  I've never shopped for one, but I know they ain't cheap.

 

Good god man, I assumed those were discount store finds, were they true thrift??  Amazing Christmas money you found there.  With these items, if they fit and you love them, and you don't need the mooney, wear them for a year or so, they aren't going to lose much more value.  I look at the stuff in my closet as sales delayed, not lost.

True that.  I expected meager returns on those, just not that meager, that really bummed me out.

My internet sucks. I have to upgrade shit (connection, router, computer, etc...). According to speedtest.net this is all that I am getting.

That's really not that bad depending on what you're using it for?

Pickups from yesterday were a mix of thrift and resale shop (resale shop being priced well above thrift, but not NMLC / SoF or anything like that).

 

Suit's not my size - headed out somewhere, eventually.  Loro jacket is my size, and contemplating keeping but probably let it go as well.

No, but I finally made it better!

Seeing your results made me wonder...

 

My cable modem is on the floor under my desk, and the wifi access point (an Apple Time Capsule) is sitting on the desk, less than three feet from my laptop).

Belvest makes for LV and that's definitely not Belvest which is why I hesitated on your first post. The LP patch script seemed a little off but that may just be me and that thing could be fine. What you may have is an LV Uniforms suit, if it says that word anywhere on the interior of it. They have special suits made for employees that often find there way onto to the secondary market. It's strange because the details and such just seem too elaborate for it to truly be a fake, but at the same time it's not manufactured by the people who actually make LV suits.

Fabric content and quality play a big roll in Tom Ford pricing. They can be 5 or 7 or 9 depending on what it's comprised of or if its a 2 or 3 pieces etc... Either way what you have is one of the finest OTR suits available with probably the best resale value out of any there are strictly based on scarcity.
