What is everyone's impressions on the flippabilty of Aquascutum rain/trench coats? I see a fair number - a lot seem to have Aqua5 - but because I see a fair number my impression is that they're not that rare so margins would be low. Edited by FaceOfBoh - 2/26/13 at 10:50am
I sold a BNWT SC on eBay, I have two of the exact same coats. Because they are the same, I grabbed the one not pictured on eBay. Guy gets it yesterday and tells me he wants the one in the Auction. I am trying to explain they are the exact same coat, with the same measurements, the only difference is the hanging tag 024 vs 026.
I e-thrifted a pair of Edward Greens for $55 that I hoped would fit me, but they don't. Looking to flip now. Problem is they were half-soled poorly and need to be redone.
Nick at B Nelson looked at them and said it'd be $180 to make them nice again ($90 standard resole + $50 channeled and beveled soles + $40 replace damaged welts) so my total investment would be $235.
Worth the investment in the repairs? Completed EBay listings seem kinda all over the map. I'm guessing I could get $400 for them with new soles, without too much trouble. But more than that, I'm not sure.
