    In all seriousness, this guy was letting them go for a good price (I got one and they were a steal - not sure if he has any left).

    Why do you think that BG is lying about the Hangers? Do you think that they actually do give them out to people? I didn't want to be too pushy when I called to ask about it, but am I being too lax?

    That wouldn't surprise me... I've bought a few TF suits at Harrod's and they only ever gave me one wooden hanger. They should have given you the plastic one though.

    I'm assuming you didn't get the TF suit on deep discount. If you're dropping thousands for a suit, they can't throw in a hanger that cost $10 to make (or whatever it is)? Strikes me as petty on the part of BG. I would say exactly that to the person who sold you the suit.

    Return the suit to BG, and buy it at TF.

    Problem solved.

    What is wrong with the hanger you got with it? Why is a Tom Ford hanger special?

    I always ask for the hanger whenever I buy a suit/sports coat at stores.


    If they refuse, I refund the item. No questions asked.


    Haven't had them deny me one yet.

    Buy a $3000 suit and get a 10 cent hanger? The problem is BG does not want to give him the "nice" hanger to go with his fancy "nice" suit. And this is at Bergdorf where they hold themselves to be one of the premier men's clothing stores in America.

    He's out to buy a TOM FORD hanger, how are they different than normal hangers other than saying his name on it?

    Multi brand distributors toss the branded logo hangers when they receive items in their stock most of the time, and use their own branded hangers. Its all about subliminal marketing!

    I got a TF wood suit hanger when I bought a Polo shirt from their madison store last year.

    Obsessive Compulsives replace their Tom Ford hangers with a hanger from a matching set. That way every hanger in the closet is the same, and every article hangs perfectly. Label whores collect hangers.
