Im on Vacay right now, but something urgent came up and I needed a spanking brand new suit. So I flew in some tailor that lived in California. He was good and new his stuff, but he seemed kind of idk.. He said since you're going to be going to a party, I suggest you buy an Ultra Layer for your suit. I've never heard of this, and i have around 100 suits, with appx 40% Bespoke. He said it is literally invisible and if something spills on your suit, it wont get messed up, because it is absorbed .

Cost:

430$


Scam?

I tend to believe you thread is the scam. You own 100 suits (40 of which are bespoke), you flew a specific tailor to your location and you're afraid he's screwing you? You're either not a real person or you're a clown worthy of paying an extra $430 for the Emperor's New Clothes Protector.

Undercharged by $500. Send it to me and I'll get it to the tailor.

Is somebody going to bring up the Seinfeld episode where Puddy forces Jerry to buy the rust-proof undercoating for his new car, or do I have to?

Dude there are average to extremely wealthy folk on this forum, but no one has pinned their wealth on their sleeve like your post. It's getting a little ridiculous.

Hey this reminds me of something. Does anyone know where to find a replacement hubcap for my "08 Phantom?"

I added "flying in your own tailor who is 'idk' and 'new his stuff' to the list of "Expensive Things That Just Don't Make Sense" thread that was also started by TheDiesel. I bet he owns a Diesel watch.

Is he charging a finders fee for the suit?

Dude, read the post closely. He was on Vacay! C'mon. Stop asking stupid questions. Don't waste the OP's time. He's too important to have to waste his time with people like you!

Why do you think he flew in the tailor? Duh! C'mon!

EDIT: I'm being sarcastic.
