Guys, I sold this ridiculous (excuse me, sorry - RIDICULOUS amazing RARE) Cifonelli suit to a fellow forumite, and the measurements didnt quite work out for him, so he is putting it back up on the chopping block.

Words dont say how nice this suit is - its a gorgeous soft wheat brown POW with a gentle blue overcheck. $4600 new and worn barely a few times, I urge you to try and find another recent Cifonelli suit for this price, of this recent provenance, for this size. 36/38S sizes wake up! You can find his listing here :

and spam[1].gif I have one more suit of the same brand, same cut, in a beautiful fall weight grey nailhead. smile.gif

Uh I liked the white RL… but what is hemp? The Isaia is nice too, also the Canali. Expect PM Spoo.

Now this turns complicated… get the red Zegna or another one. biggrin.gif

The Borrelli's, what size are they?

I may end up getting addicted to Luxeswap consignment. Sending ol' Spoo one of my favorite jackets. It's just one size too big for me. Once I learned how things should fit, this one never looked the same. Ignorance is bliss.

 

Not saying what it is but whoever buys it better treat it right!

As many of you know, I have been a big part of the StyleForum community over the past 3 years. In addition, for the past 10 years, I have operated my eBay store found here.

It is with great pleasure that I can now announce my own site, LuxeSwap.com.

With the introduction of my site, I am pleased to announce my affiliate vendor status here on StyleForum. The primary service that I will offer as an affiliate vendor is to sell your luxury goods via my eBay store. If you have viewed my auctions in the past, I follow a true auction style - the auctions start at $9.99 and run with no reserve. This technique, coupled with a dedicated following of tens of thousands of clients, has garnered some amazing hammer prices for my items. On occasion, my items end at higher than the retail price they are in the stores. I will accept consignments of all kinds : mens, women's, home, fine jewelry and watches.

Perhaps you don't have the inclination to do a closet cleaning? Maybe your B&S sales are not gaining any traction? You have thrifted too much and don't have the time to list? I will sell all your items with the care and treatment that I do my own, and give you the best exposure possible. My eBay page has over 32,000 views, and I have had well over 7,500 successful transactions. There is not much that I don't know how to do in terms of getting you the best prices possible for your items in a true auction environment.

In addition, I have created an eBoutique, also found on LuxeSwap.com where you can purchase items directly. I plan to add many, many more items to the store in the coming months, so I encourage you to sign up for email updates! There are also links to my tumblr and (future) twitter, where you should follow for special teasers and promos.

The StyleForum community is extremely important to me, and I will always do my best for my fellow SF members. To celebrate the launch of my site, I have created a 15% discount for the first 30 days for my store, with code STYFO15.

I look forward to helping you all clear out your closets, thrift finds, unwanted gifts and purchases, and anything else that I can turn into cash for you!

A special thank you must go out to Parker, for designing the site for me, and to in stitches and DerekS for helping me test the site over the past few weeks.

I can be reached via PM here, or by using the "Contact" page on LuxeSwap.com.

One year ago today, at 6:00am, I woke up, went for a walk on the beach. I was so nervous to come back and hit "submit" on the post that is spoilered above. I had worked for months preparing the LuxeSwap website and business plan. I was on hiatus from posting at 19,999 for a week or so, waiting to make that my 20,000th post.

When I was walking on the beach, I was nervous that the community would not really respond to the site, and all the money and time I invested in it would be for naught. Its always scary putting something you put so much of yourself into full throttle, right into the public. I cant say this was any different. The sales I make are largely fact based - measurements, pictures, descriptions. Not really something that takes an artist to create, but I treat each piece as if it were my artwork. I try and make a crappy piece look great, I try and make a great piece look even better. I take each auction and sale quite personally, and I like watching them bloom like a flower from when the seed is planted until full blossom. I think (I hope) that thats why most of my auctions are successes.

At 6:30am, when the sun began to rise, I sat there on the shore and said a little prayer to myself that everything would work out well with my venture that I was about to embark on. The day and time were also pretty significant to me, as it marked the 15 year anniversary of the death of one of my personal heroes, Gianni Versace. I snapped the picture above to commemorate the moment, put on U2's "Where the Streets Have No Name" on my iPod, came back inside, and hit submit on that post at 6:54am.

And so, LuxeSwap was born.

A year later, the business that I have created has been busier and more successful than anything I could have ever expected. When I started LuxeSwap, I was listing 30-40 auctions a week, and that was a lot to handle. Now, I rarely list less than 125 per week, most weeks about 175, with hundreds of more auctions that I just didnt have time to finish. I take upwards of 2500 photos each week, have sent over 30,000 emails, and have sent over 5,000 packages this year. Ive sold over 6000 of your pieces this year, that you so generously trusted in me to move for you. I have also met some extremely cool people who started out as consignors and I now call my friends. Ive made a lifelong dream come true of purchasing a Ferrari, which is something that I never expected would happen.

Of course, its not all without sacrifice. I rarely have a break or a vacation, Ive worked on my listings in some aspect each day for the past 365 days. I wake up at 4:30-5:00am nearly every single day to work on them. I work on Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving. I was packing ties on New Years Eve. My daughter sometimes helps pack the packages, she puts the stickers on the tissue paper. If you get one a little crooked, you know why. My wife writes you all your checks, you can thank her for those. She lovingly packs all the packages, and does her best to put the Luxe in LuxeSwap when you open your box.

So, one year later, I want to sincerely and honestly thank each and every one of you. Anyone who has ever cast a bid on one of my auctions, anyone who sent me something of yours to sell. Anyone who purchased something from me. Anyone who even thought of sending me something to sell. Anyone who had looked at one of my auctions and asked a question. I want to thank you all for making LuxeSwap a success this year. Thank you.

I have big plans for LuxeSwap in the coming year, hopefully continuing this upward trajectory. Stay tuned for more on those. But first, I need a break. Im taking a small time out from accepting consignments for the next few weeks - I need to get myself grounded again for the Fall rush. I want to get out and see some of the sunshine this summer and be a husband and a dad for a little while. Ill resume consignments in just a week or two. Auctions will continue to run as normal, as I have still a few hundred items to plow through and get out, so nothing is going to change on the auction interface.

Anyway, TLDR, I thank you all for making this a success. Im now going to head down to the beach, take a walk, throw on U2's where the streets have no name, and instead of saying a prayer of hope, Im going to say a prayer of thanks.

Congrats to you, Spoo, and a hearty thanks for all the work you put in to make LuxeSwap such a boon to the larger community.

Enjoy your vacation, and I've got a box of stuff for you when you get back.
