Would you buy a tuxedo previously owned by your favorite celebrity? Of course you would! But would you buy it for £2,600 (or $4,200)?
In the early part of November, David Beckham donated some clothes to a charity organization as a way to help raise money to send as relief operations following the devastating typhoon in the Philippines.
Days later and the tuxedo was purchased by a 22-year-old Economics student named Jordan Silverstone for £125 ($204). Apparently, Jordan came into a British Red Cross store based in Chelsea and picked up the tuxedo. But just after a few days, the tuxedo was spotted being sold in eBay for £2,600 ($4,200). With the tuxedo rumored to be originally worth £4,000 ($6,500), would this have been a worthy buy?
When people found out about this, they accused the student of profiteering from the purchase. But he shrugged off these accusations saying that he originally bought the suit for his father, whom it did not fit into.
‘It is absolute nonsense. If I keep the suit and leave it in my Dad’s wardrobe never to be worn then that is okay, but if I sell it on to a buyer who really wants it that isn’t?’
He later on added that he was planning to donate a part of his income to a charity. There have been no follow up reports on whether or not he actually did what he promised.
