Experiment by buying new things. So yes, go buy some Raf.

Saw those cuffed bottom pants on the internets too somwhere - might be kinda cool? Anyways, just word vomiting, thanks in advance for the input.

post a fit pic, and i'll tell you the ways you can crazy it up

I thought one of the big points of the new software was to drive more traffic to the site, that plus the reviews on items, new listing tools, signatures with listings, sellers paying to feature their items, etc was that all of it would come together to increase the B&S movement, and yet it seems to have completely killed the momentum. I see a lot of stuff listed but nothing moves and everyone seems frustrated by it. Anyone know what's going on, like really?


Is there just too much stuff being sold or some of it's junk?
Are there new people but they're all lurkers or cheapos who don't want baller stuff?
Are there more online stores and discounts so people are buying but it's going there instead?
Is everyone broke and they're also used to screaming good deals online so they're just waiting for price drops?
etc

my little theory is the people who browse the swd classifieds, like so many internet menswear nerds, are broke dudes in their twenties who face loads of opportunity costs with every purchase they make, so even before buying a cheapo shirt they're doing copious research and thinking and searching. Add to this the crazy amount of cheap clothing options strewn throughout the web, not to mention the risk involved with non-returnable items, and you're left with a slim chance that what they end up buying is one of your listings. I'm sure some buyers with a more forgiving income also search the classifieds, but my sense is their standards are quite a bit higher, making them more likely to buy a rare-ish Schneider piece than a Uniqlo flannel.

I see Zara and Aldo stuff for sale.... who buys that from here?

Also, it's about the time where low post people and new sign-ups start flooding the forum. I hope you're all ready.

Holy shit black/royals going for a lot of money - was thinking of getting them as beaters. Might as well just spend a bit more and get some baller sneaks.
post #87011 of 109053
what are they?
post #87012 of 109053
Air Jordan 1.
post #87013 of 109053
yeah, ditched of the idea of grabbing sneaks I wanted when I was a kid when I saw the 5s priced at $5-600

I've never bought anything from Aldo but I still have a knit duffle jacket from Zara I still wear, I think it was like $90 and honestly probably best quality thing I've felt from that brand. And also have this thick padded nylon moto style jacket that is my go to jacket when I'm going out and gonna get shitfaced. Luckily its only been needed to be stitched up once. My one and only peacoat is from H&M which I've had for like 7 years has had shit load of wear I think it's a 90/5nylon/5poly blend or some crap and still one of the things I reach for first in my closet.

I think those brands do sometimes put out good shit but you really have to feel the fabric and think about how it'll hold up.

just a short article about people getting rich off fashion. H&M owner is one of the world's 50 richest people, Zara founder is the world's third-richest person and Brunello Cucinelli is also somehow worth $10B?

Estimated, some of the people on Forbes list, have said that, they are WAAAAAY of.

I saw a program, where a guy from HK said, that they were about 50% of valuing most of the people in HK.
