Based on the made in USA part, and the style of the tag, I'd think this was late 90s or early 2000s. It's odd that there's no year on the style #, I haven't seen that often. Are there any other tags? When I get home later tonight, I'll check out my catalogs to see if it's in one of them, as that's not the same style # as the current Retro-X jackets.

 

No other tags. Let me know if you're able to find anything! Just want to be sure so I don't mislead any buyer on what it is and shit like that. Thanks dude!

Hey, @Fueco. I don't mean to pile on. However, I need your Patagonian expertise. Typically, Google works for me. Unfortunately, I am getting conflicting results. I wouldn't normally fool with made in Costa Rica stuff, but it was less than $4. Anyway, the tag says that it is Cut: 81087 Style: 83122. Some listings say Powder Bowl. Some say hooded shell jacket (I assume this is a type rather than an actual product name). While others say Alpine. I am confused. Any help would be most appreciated.

I just gave one of those to the a sports/outerwear expert I run into at a bunch of stores here.  For the life of me I couldn't think of the name for it.  The fleece didn't look quite that high, but it was higher than normal.  Had a R on the sleeve, so just retro-X?  I didn't want to take a chance since it was an expensive store (relatively).  Oh shit.  Guess I made a mistake, next time I'll know.  Did sell this in a day for >$100.

I'll go more in depth with a response in the morning. There are multiple types of fleece used by Patagonia: Synchilla is the mainline (it comes in regular and lightweight); Regulator is the high tech new stuff (since 2001, and it comes in R.5, R1, R2, R3, and R4, and has an R on the left sleeve); the Retro fleeces are a "throwback fabric" to the days before Synchilla when pile was king.

The type of fleece isn't the model name. There are probably a hundred different models made over the past 35+ years. The most sought after models are the original pile fleeces, Synchilla Snap-T's and the Retros.

I'm fairly certain that this is a Retro-X, but the style number doesn't match the listings in any of my catalogs. Can you post a couple of overexposed/lightened pictures so I can better see the style of the jacket? Seeing where the seams are would help a bit in being certain. Patagonia has been known to change style numbers on their products (I came across one a few days ago that was a 2014 model and had a different style number with the same product name from the 2015 model). I think they change the style number when the change the design/pattern of the garments, which makes things a bit confusing.

 

Also, post a close-up of the fabric, inside and outside.

I think this is the old Alpine Shell Jacket, but cannot confirm that based on the style number. The newer ones are soft shell jackets, and thus have a different style number. What is the material of the shell? If it's not GoreTex, there's no way it's a Powder Bowl (which also has a built-in snowskirt, as any dedicated ski jacket should).

 

Sorry I can't be of more help. Patagonia has released a whole lot of models of jackets, and my list is incomplete, I only have catalogs from 1988, 1994, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2007, 2009, 2014, and 2015.

Anything special here? People go gaga over the wilder print Patagonia but I've never had success finding an active or sold listing for ones like these.

tax guys - do you itemize every item that you've bought and sold?  i currently use godaddy bookkeeping, and use my paypal debit card for all business related expenses, but not sure if everything needs to be itemized line by line.  i recently started thinking about taxes and will probably talk to my accountant soon.

No need to itemize every item. I plug in any expenses that haven't already been captured through PayPal/PayPal debit card, print the Schedule C from GoDaddy and I'm done.

Plus one, but this year we're getting expert help with taxes. Moving a business between states makes things a bit more difficult. :hide:

I just give my accountant the cost of goods sold and all business expenses broken down by category, e.g. Postage, Shipping, supplies, repairs/cleaning, MILEAGE, travel (food and lodging if out of town), and don't forget all your office/home office deductions; Rent/mortgage, utilities, internet, phone, trash, taxes, etc, also include ebay fees, paypal fees, and so on.  

 

I probably give him too much, but I have a sheet I work off of that helps. 

 

i"ll try to find the sheet I use.

^ godaddy basically keeps track of all that stuff since i exclusively use paypal/paypal debit card for everything.  the only thing that i currently don't have is the mileage, but i saved all my receipts from basically every thrift/discount store i've bought from with the intent to resell, so although tedious that should be relatively simple to figure out.

 

great info though.
