post #24991 of 47068
I see no reason why u guys hate it. Moo use his own money and he has the right to sell the stuff would not work for him.

All he did is benefiting some people get it at a cheaper price. Both side would happy.

There's nothing wrong. Unless u guys just jealous.

That's the key, never to pay retail so if you do flip shortly after, you won't take much of a hit (if at all).

I like to try new things for the hell of it, even if it's out of nowhere (julius, etc) and if it doesn't work oh well. In central Florida I have NOWHERE to get clothes, it only happens if I go on vacation to Miami or NYC to visit friends. and as stated, if I buy at discount it's not like I take a big hit or anything and I get to try a new designer/new type of garment, etc, etc. I think a lot of guys on here are used to a 'NYC mentality' and don't realize that there's a ton of members on here in cities where literally NOBODY has a clue what something like Dries or CdG or Ann D is. Even Margiela, one of the more mainstream fashion brands, is unheard of to 90% of people at my school/people I know. Hell, it's 'asburd' of for most guys to spend over $100 on a button up shirt. Let's not get into $500 shoes.

Pair that with the fact that I have a really hard frame to fit with broad shoulders and big quads with a small waist, it's 75% miss/25% hit. I could probably get that ratio a lot better but I'm a sucker for if something is at deep discount I'll still TRY and make it work if I really like it.

Then lastly, I buy a bunch of shit, wear it once or twice and the 'desire' for that certain garment sort of goes away so I just sell it. I'd rather do that than have it sit in my closet and wear it once every couple of months. I know a lot of guys and especially girls who are like that. Sort of silly to just have a stockpile of clothes that just sit in a closet when you can sell it to buy stuff you'll wear (even if it's just for a few times).

Just my 2c

thats cuz you dmash and myself are now talking instead of Jet who apparently wastes spaces on SF
post #24996 of 47068
Ehh, Jet just gets feisty because he knows a lot of his stuff and gets annoyed with the same questions posted all the time. I remember when I first joined and I would ask some questions (not in the noob threads) and I would think 'wow this Jet guy is a fu***** prick', but now I'm starting to see why he would get annoyed, lol. There is A LOT of stuff that's just talked about repeatedly on here and some of the threads that are always at the top of SF are sort of like 'really'? Like for God sakes, how many different questions can you have about a workwear fit? Sure, I throw on boots, jeans and a v neck to campus and shit, but I don't ask a bazillion questions about common sense stuff. but even then, as long as it's talked about in the noob threads, it's perfectly ok.


Take this for example.....the APC and Clarks desert boot thread has over 1000 pages combined and are both on the front page. A quick glance on page 2 and I saw Schneider's thread which has less than 100 pages. Given I'm being biased towards Schneider as I really like his stuff, but I think that's a little silly. I mean 400 pages for Clark's desert boots......WTF can you possibly be talking about?!?!


Guess I'm sort of getting off track now, but yeah, lol. Studied too much tonight, brain is just on a roll.

Everyone should be nice to everyone and everyone should buy what they want and sell what they want and everyone should respect that because you're all special.

I've never smelled that, but I'd just like to point out that random people usually have absolutely atrocious taste.

In university a guy at a Hilfiger store once asked my roommate "is that Acqua di Gio?" out of the blue while ringing up his order. (He was wearing Acqua di Gio, but I've never forgotten how unexpected and vaguely inappropriate the question seemed.)

People will comment on things that they think they are "supposed to" comment on (anything with D&G or Prada on it, for instance, regardless of questionable authenticity -- unless it's an SF crowd); they will also enthusiastically mention anything the praise of which might seem to reflect well on them or elevate them in some way, however momentarily (I recognize your cologne because I too belong to the enlightened demographic with the money for and interest in such things / I notice your selvage jeans, subtle Hermes branding, etc).

TLDR = a compliment coming from a random person on the street, as opposed to someone tasteful who is known to you, can very well be a more bad than good thing
