For me, that also goes for tops and outerwear.  It seems to help to have clothes in such a way where you can see them so you can appreciate their subtle qualities.  Also, I pair items up beforehand so its easier to appreciate them and wear them readily, rather than trying to figure out at the last minute what to wear.  Then you can just grab what you've paired up, especially if in a rush, rather than wearing the same ol crap that one tends to wear all the time.  A simple example would be to pair up a vest and shirt and hang them together.

I hear ya. Makes sense. My concern, though, is that I have a lot of stuff that's built to last and be worn that sits around. I find that I rotate the same 2-3 pants and same 5-6 shirts. I guess I need to start showing my other stuff some love. Or get rid of it.

Minimalist/wannabe minimalist here. I'm always trying to chip away at my wardrobe and only buy something new if it's an improvement that will replace something I already own. I still have a few items I can't get myself to part with even though they are hardly worn.

There is some good to having unworn clothes. They'll look nice and crisp the few times you break them out.

However, it wouldn't be the first time where I've seen something that I've initially hated and then as I see it more and more I've changed my mind and picked them up a few months later. I think EG are doing their fatigues in an indigo railroad stripe this season so I'm hoping they might fit the bill.

Your argument would make sense if I was simply buying and reselling buckles. Yes, most of my buckles cost $5-10 (although I am starting to use hand forged buckles from Japan), the premium leather I use is about $15 per strap that I cut, and about another $5-10 in supplies, and about $5-10 for shipping. That's $30-45 before I even start making it- cutting it by hand, mixing custom dye colors, burnishing edges, hand stitching, cutting to custom length, all for about $40 in labor, not to mention the years that it has taken to learn and improve the skills. And, what are you doing? Hitting the outlets and flipping stuff on Ebay? Sounds like hard work, man.

Would Blake or Context sell you the same selvedge chinos for $160 with free shipping???
You're not Blake or Context. You routinely list them at 150% of the price from other Ebay sellers. In the end, it didn't matter because I found a pair for $90 from one of your competitors.

You routinely list your cheap quality goods for 150% more than your Etsy competitors. And nice try your buckles cost $1. I saw the feedback you listed for that seller "great hardware" yes, $1 buckles, great hardware indeed. Quality work you do I'm sure...

 

What does Blake and Context do? They call RL up, make an order at wholesale, which is 65% off MSRP and flip it for retail. Sounds way more complicated than what I do!

 

If someone sells something on eBay they have to compete with everyone on eBay? Is that a rule or just another one of your stupid assumptions? Maybe you better stick to making $12 keychains and fight to stay competitive for your lunch money with single moms on Etsy and let me decide how to run my business.

$5-10 shipping? REALLY? USPS First Class costs $2-3.

$10 in supplies? For nylon thread and a $1 buckle?

So how about those Knicks?

This is stupid. Next personal attack gets timed out and owes me $500. No, I'm not kidding.

Fok.

He's not kidding guys.

 

I remember I paid like $1500 fine for going against B&S rules back in couple years ago.

Here we go again...

The worst part is that I get emails when there are unread posts and when I read through them its just cackling and moaning.

Aye, agreed. You can a better feel for them if you look at the close up of the pocket and then hover the arrow over the picture to zoom in.

I noticed a new version of this cowichan style sweater on the site.





Do you all find there is much of a difference in quality between blue label and RRL?

I apologize, guys. I should know better.

I confess to having a love/hate relationship with this thread for a long time.
