    I saw a Tom Ford jacket in their store in my size that I love, but it is so expensive.

    What I am asking is: Do you think it is worth the money because it is so so so expensive?

    Well, it depends: what do you want more, that jacket or $6940?

    I'd pay no more than $6935

    Hahaha

    What I'm asking is, knowing Tom Ford and how it looks as a piece, do you guys think it's outstanding or just pretty good? Is it mind-blowing?

    other than sales occasions, there are only two reasons to go to a TFshop

    1-to buy at whatever price
    2-to bask at the prices

    from your post you seem to fall in to group 2 so you have already decided

    Fair enough, twinpeaks. When are Tom Ford's sales?

    God knows, I wouldn't spend my good money on TF stuff even at 60% off.

    Like someone told me once, after they left a TF concession in London, why pay X ££s for a RTW TF overcoat when you can have it MTM by Anderson & Sheppard for 40% less money, or £1000 pounds for RTW shoes that are not welted

    "Worth" is 100% subjective. You have to decide on that for yourself.

    Well the sleeves a bit long but I guess they would fix that. You could look at alternatives like Cucinelli (sp?) which is shockingly expensive but probably still less than that. If you honestly don't blink at spending that much on a casual jacket it may just be for you.

    Thanks all. I was asking only because I was wondering if the styling was just so-so, that is to say, if you were like "this is something you could get anywhere waste of money" vs" this is unique unlike anything else" vs "a total steel Tom Ford is amazing!"

    So you all think it's really nice but slightly o'erpriced? Or a fucking ripoff even taking into consideration the styling and cut?

    It looks like a Streetwear & Denim question. Might get better opinions on the jacket there...

    I wouldn't. I prefer my clothes to be sharp; not blurry.

    Its not even worth $695.00

    But since you're so in love with this designer tell them you want to be on their "Special Preview List" because you'll buy whatever they're selling.

    I'm a newbie so I am curious--why is it "not even worth $695.00?"
