New Delhi: A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine shared a picture of a man in his 20s, wearing a modern-style suit, with the caption “I’m so happy I bought this suit.”
That was when I was a bit perplexed.
I wanted to know if this was some kind of viral hoax.
I was thinking, how could a person buy this suit for such a price and not realize the price?
So I went on social media and found lots of people sharing similar pictures.
They were mostly from the western world, mostly men.
Some were young.
But the biggest number of people were from India.
Many were wearing suits in the West, but many of them had been travelling overseas and were going to wear them in India.
I thought, how can these guys afford such a thing?
I found a couple of people who were in the same boat.
They had bought a suit from a designer online for less than $600, and they were also travelling.
So I sent them my query.
“This suit is amazing,” they wrote back, as I sent the price along with my question.
I asked, “How much does it cost?
How much did you spend on this suit?”
They replied, “About $10,000.
I bought it for about $10.50 a piece.”
They did not want to talk about the suit.
So, I asked them what they spent on the suit, and what they had bought for the money.
“The main difference between the Western and Indian versions of the suit is that the Indian version comes with a belt pouch,” they replied.
That is, you have to put your belt on the outside of the front pouch.
That gives you room to put a wallet and a cash bag.
You also have to take off the trousers.
They also did not seem to like the trousers, which were a bit narrow.
They didn’t like the shape of the pockets.
I told them that I was trying to find a modern, affordable, and stylish suit, but they said, “It is only $10 a piece.
It is so expensive.”
They said that they would buy a new suit if I could find someone who would wear it.
I sent an email to the couple, and after about two hours, I got an answer.
They told me that they had spent about $5,000 on the purchase of the outfit.
I went ahead and bought a pair of trousers from a department store in New Delhi for $5.
The trousers cost me about $700.
I then asked them to send me their phone number.
They sent me a number for a contact number.
I called the number and spoke to the man.
The person on the other end said, that it was an Indian guy who was travelling overseas, and he had bought this for a price.
I thanked him and told him I had seen the photo of the person wearing the suit on Facebook.
He replied, I have bought it from a tailor in Mumbai for $12,000, which was the cost for making the suit and the pocket belt.
“It’s a great deal,” he said.
“We’re in the business for about a year.
It’s going to cost me $10 or $15 a piece, depending on the size of the trousers.”
He was not impressed with the trousers but was pleased with the purchase.
The man was willing to buy the suit for $10 from me, so we went to his tailor.
I explained that I had been looking for a modern suit for quite some time and wanted to buy one for the price of $10 at the time.
I said that the suit I had bought was a suit for men.
The tailor agreed to sell it to me for about 15,000 rupees ($15), which is about $800.
He also agreed to take care of the cost of the dress I was going to get for the occasion.
“I am happy to sell you a new outfit,” he told me.
I agreed to that price and bought the suit from him for $11,500.
“You’ll get a suit that will suit you in any city,” he promised.
I gave him the address of the tailor’s shop, and the tailor came to my home in Delhi on Tuesday.
He went into the shop to check the suit out, and I took the suit home and put it on.
I returned to the tailor, and we talked about the prices of the suits.
He told me, I can tell you, that this is the only outfit I’ve ever had in my life.
It was a fantastic suit.
It looked modern, it was stylish, it looked like it belonged in a movie, he said, and it was very comfortable.
I am very happy with the result, he added.
I would recommend it to anybody.
If you want a modern outfit for less money than $50, this is a great choice. If it
