The story behind 250$ 4k+ Italian suits in B&S..

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
How exactly do these suits find their way here for such a good price?

Is it something like John buys a 4k Purple Label from a discount store for 2k, 8 years later decides to consign in and it end up for sale for like $500 and 2 years later a SF enthusiast decides he is bored with it so he posts here?

Much of it comes from outlets, discount stores and clearance sales. Other items are, as you mention, stuff people bought and didn't wear/no longer want.

Yeah I reckon most of it is the result of successive markdowns- seasonal sales, clearance sales, department store brand clearance stores, Marshall's- every time a garment makes it to the next step in this process unsold, you'll see a price reduction. Hence the prevalence of stuff like bright tweeds and windowpanes as compared to navy blazers.

^ +1. There is a reason truly classic items in common sizes are hard to find in B&S.
