  It was definitely pretty recent, and actually now that I'm going back and looking at the pictures it wasn't HF, let alone made in USA.  Part of the problem might have been that it was solid khaki, so a possible orphan.  It still surprised me.  I had it listed for $50 for a while and it was getting less than 20 views.   [[SPOILER]]   And how the hell did you sell that old HF for $60???  This just happened to me last week, which was quite...
  Yeah, I picked up a G&H SC a while back that was made in USA by Hickey Freeman, and I had trouble even selling it for $10.  It was side-vented too.  I received 3 or 4 messages by confused potential buyers who didn't understand how it was made in USA when G&H is a Saville Row tailor.  After learning it was licensed, everyone lost interest.  I could see a suit doing better though.   EDIT:  Sorry Brian, I didn't mean to sound snarky.  It was meant to be a playful jab, no...
  You neglected to take a closer look at the completed listings.  All the ones that sold did not look like they were licensed, but rather actually made in London by G&H. 
  Probably a good pass.  Licensed G&H doesn't have a whole lot of value, and since that is unvented and made in HK it probably isn't worthwhile.
I hear ya.  Its a different story when you're talking about so-so condition items and less dollar value items.  I would feel awful even asking for a high price to another thrifter.  I was mainly referring to nice high dollar stuff like Brioni, RLPL, Kiton jackets/suits.  I just think you're crazy for selling that stuff for cheap.  You're talking a quarter to half a grand that you're giving to another guy you know on the internet...       This isn't exclusively a trading...
  That doesn't make sense to me.  If something is recent and in really nice condition, who cares where its from and the fact its in a thrift store.  I would honestly consider buying a $350 Kiton from a GW if it was recent, in nice shape, and my size.     To me it seems like a bad habit to regularly sell stuff to SF members for dirt cheap.  Sure it makes sense to send a Charles Tyrwhitt shirt to someone for cheap, but anyone who is sending off quality suits/jackets like...
Does anyone know anything about women's shoes?  Picked these up, and I'm not sure if they are real or fake.  Quality seems nice, but the current Prada shoes label says "Prada Milano", not "Prada Made in Italy".  Anyone know?   [[SPOILER]]     Also picked up this beast for $6 (98.6% off retail), as seen here http://www.rugby.com/shop/item.aspx?productId=11884479&categoryId=11373427&cp=3138868.  This is made by Corneliani, right?  Fits me well, so unavailable.  ...
  If I were you and I ended up reselling something I didn't want anymore, then I would split the profit 50/50 with the person who sold it to me for cheap.  
  That blazer looks pretty sweet.  Its got to be right near the label switch date, and I wouldn't doubt its authenticity because you can see some quality even in the pictures.  I've never seen anything like it, nice buy.
  .  Suit or SC?
