This is a legitimately great idea.

When I list stuff here I also list it on Grailed an Ebay for a $20-70 markup. It usually sells on one of those places before here for much more.

That is legitimately good.

I got flagged from Grailed once because a guy saw my thing on Styleforum, but apparently I missed his PM. He sent an offer for the item on Grailed (which had a higher price) and mentioned about SF, so I just told him I'd handle the transaction through PM here. This was in the very early days of Grailed, so it was kinda clunky to me. Anyways, Arun sent me an email blah blah blah.

It's an OK site, but I still like eBay the best. List a fixed price item and forget about it until someone buys it. For small timers like me, that's always worked, just wished the fees weren't atrocious.




Anyways, I want a new hat this summer. Who is making cool straw/paper hats? Interested in felt too. Semi-wide brim. I should've bought that Blue Blue Japan Pastoral Hat from gentry but I slept on it and it was gone the next morning.

EG's making a nice straw sun hat this season... can't remember who's stocking it. Nonnative made these really cool paper woven hats last season... somebody on here has one. It's either Diniro, Nicelynice or BreezyBirch... I can't remember.

Do you have pics of the EG? I saw Needles had one but not sure how I feel about it.

I had two nonnattive hats but they looked off on me. Will see what they have this time around

Anyone have any recommendations for slouchy crew neck long sleeve shirts? I always liked sizing up on Uniqlo but this new year the fit's become a little too short and boxy.

The fee is tiny as well. Cant believe a few buck people try to save.

This would be good on ebay as well. I had 4 payers bid, wind an item and not pay. I reported them but ebay did nothing.

it gets visibility since a lot of people use ebay but the fees are outrageous now.

Not sure if this is what you are after, but kka has a nice looking linen hat.

Here's the EG one from Context:



Wide brim, kinda has that Inherent Vice - 70's stoner vibe to it. I love it in theory. Not sure if I can commit to the look for real. I believe it also comes in Navy straw.

frown.giffrown.gif I will be forever sad that this wjk leather wouldn't fit me. I think it was the first leather jacket I ever really, really wanted. Either that or a moto-collared intarsia.
