A student has been criticised after buying a tuxedo donated to charity by David Beckham for £125 and selling it on eBay for £2,600.
Jordan Silverstone has been accused of deliberately trying to make a profit on clothing donated to charity by Beckham to help raise money for the relief effort in the Philippines following last month’s devastating typhoon.
The 22-year-old picked up the tuxedo at a British Red Cross store in Chelsea.
He has argued he later sold the Saville Row suit for a huge profit because it did not fit his dad, who he had bought it for.
‘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 said.
The economics pupil added he was intending on donating part of the money he made to charity.
The tuxedo was originally said to be worth £4,000.
