This. It just has to look nice.
Looking for some feedback from the more experienced sellers, if you are willing to share. When considering a TIE in the same brand, model, and material, what exactly is it that can cause one tie to have a ton of hits, a number of watchers, and a quick sale when a similar brand/model/material gets no love? For example:
BB Makers Maroon with gold diagonal stripe (with wrinkles), 70+ hits, 5 watchers, and sold within 2 days:
Some "similar" ties (all BB makers, similar title and description HTML) that are getting NO LOVE
Is a diagonal stripe much preferred to horizontal? Is maroon a preferred color over navy? Or maybe another way to ask is what really helps a tie sell, and what are deterants? I remember reading Spoo's post last week where he mentioned Long or Short suits tend to drop the average sale price 25% (I think it was in this range). Are there little factors that have a major impact like this on ties?
Thanks again for those willing to share some of their expertise.
Those horizontal striped ties don't sell very well, it took me a few months to unload a few I had for very little profit. I avoid the horizontal stripes now (unless of course I find a Kiton or Isaia). The red tie looks like electrified sperm.
