I used INA several years ago. I'm not very familiar with different consignment styles, but I didn't have a great experience. They are pretty selective in what they choose, and the items have to be recent (I was quoted within ~2 years old, e.g. from S/S 2015). Their prices from a buyer's perspective weren't very competitive either, though they do have a timed price discount system (XX% discount after 1 month or something). I sent in a few designer knits (jil, MMM) that...
I really need to clean out my closet. Does anyone have good recommendations for consignment? It'd be nice to support another member of this forum.
Fok please just start a thread about the luxire collab already!
In general, viridi-anne tends to vary from item to item. Having tried on a lot of the AW11-15 coats, 3 fits more like a 48. The horsehide moto-(ish) rider that is released every season fits tighter this year (also uses some more pliable horsehide), so 3 = 46. For pants, 3 is almost always a 46 waist unless you have super skinny legs.
YMMV, I've been partial to lexol products and I've never personally had any problems with them for leather clothing for the past 7-8 years I've been using it. I'm not as familiar with that specific allen edmonds product, but a brief googling makes me think it would work well. If in doubt, test out a small spot and rub it in. Also, a good rule of thumb is to use less rather than more when it comes to conditioning and/or cleaning; you can always condition more later if the...

Yes, do not dry clean waxed garments. You have to wash it with just water. I let the fur side air by flipping the coat inside out, but I would send it to a fur specialist at least once every two years.
Up for sale are a pair of Bless shorts size M, which is about a US 28. Never worn, purchased at project no. 8's sale last year. These fit pretty slim.
langlitz typically doesn't do horsehide, but will reluctantly do so for a pretty significant upcharge (~$1000 from 3-4 years ago, if I remember correctly). Their cow is quite fantastic though.
John Molloy > Arancraft, though both are pretty itchy and fit rather loose for their sizing.
