Because he's a n00b and a brand whore.

idk if you've heard about modesty but I know my suits but I'm sure there are a lot of people that know more than I do. So I call myself a noob. If I am a brand whore half of this forum are filled with brand whores. If you're gonna start accusing people of being a brand whore have something to back up your aregument.

 

I want TF for several of reasons. The cut, the quality of the fabric and TF's style. but im not going to elaborate because I really don't want to waste my time on arguing with you

What size are you and what color/pattern suit are you looking for? Is there an ideal model that fits you better than others?

I'm looking for a 38R or S  Solid Navy. I've seen your brown charcol check, I like the cut however I'm really not into the pattern and color. Do you happen to have anything else?

Because you know nothing of construction, authenticity, etc. and want it because it is the "holy grail of suits", yes, that checks off many boxes of brand whore. You haven't mentioned fit, yet in your childish and petulant rebuttal, you mention that you want it for "The cut, the quality of the fabric and TF's style. but im [SIC] not going to elaborate because I really don't want to waste my time on arguing with you." Perhaps instead of acting like a whining baby who was just told no, you can act like a civilized person and recognize that several people are questioning you to see what motives you have so that they can best help you.

There are multiple cuts of Tom Ford suits. Have you gone to the store to try on the different models? In addition, a used suit will likely have alterations done, so it won't fit the same as the suit bought directly from the store. It is likely going to change the fit.

LOL, this is about as vulgar as they come. Eat your heart out, Hermès Man!

I really don't see the point in having a Tom Ford suit when you can go to Saville row and get a bespoke for around £2500? Your paying so much for the brand name. I love designers but you have to think sometimes is it really worth the money.

No logic involved here. You are the definition of a brand whore.

A brand whore is someone who buys something simply because of the brand and not because they understand all of the attributes involved or why that brand may or may not be superior to another product.

Tom Ford is nothing of the sort but if you must have one, get one.

If you are anxious to stick with second hand to satisfy this strange goal then the prices are what the prices are. There is no set tariff so potluck rules.

What I was trying to get at before this became a fight between you and some other members is that there are very good reasons to buy Tom Ford but you need to know what the reasons are, and they need to line up with what you want. I like Tom Ford a lot and plan to eventually buy one down the road. My reasons are the stylistic choices of the lapels, button stance, length, pockets, shoulders as well as the dramatic cut of the jacket along with a strong, roped shoulder. This can't be simply "replicated" by a bespoke tailor. Not only will most bespoke tailors not want to try to duplicate it, but they most likely won't be able to get it perfectly alike. However, you need to know why you want it, otherwise, there may be better options.

I think I maybe able to help you out, I have a few TF suits at your size that you have requested. My suits are not worn I'm selling them significantly higher than the 700 you see. Since you said your budget is 3500 (I've PM'd you). Personally I do suggest you look into it before buying these suits as they are quite an investment. On another note, I'm new to SF too infact this is my first post. Best of luck!

I think you're being a little harsh, I bought my first Tom Ford not knowing a thing about suits. It was an impulse buy, however the process of purchasing it and wearing it alone taught me a lot about the fabric and cut. I don't think anyone started out with extensive knowledge about suits. In short, let the man figure it out on his own and I'm sorry Trojans? Go Wolverines!

SanityAtEdge,  in2suits wrote that he has seen some used Tom Ford suits for 700$ and was dubious of its authenticity when he knows they retail for 3500-5000$. I don't think he said his budget was 3500$.

 

As for pricing on a used garment that's so rare, there's no standard market price like there is for used cars, they are however much the owner is willing to sell for.

You need to familiarize yourself with whatever the brand is, once you know what the real one looks and feels like then you'll be able to spot a fake.

This means going to where they sell them retail and thoroughly examine them.
