Cross post from thrift thread.

 

Thanks fellas.

 

Two new year's resolutions down in one week.

 

1. Pay off student loan (really a carry-over from last year, but some of my other contributions pushed it back a couple weeks)

2. "Retire" before my 34th birthday. (was two days early on that one.)

3. Develop an effective home exercise schedule to lose 65 lbs. (the hardest of the 3)

Here's a tie tip that has worked for me: I've been using a colorful (usually red) cheap Stafford tie on lower end suits (H. Boss etc). 4 times, I've had PMs where the buyer says: I want to buy your suit, but will you include that tie? First 2 times, I was using nicer BB ties. Now, I'll go with el cheapo ties.

Pricing is one of the hardest parts. No one can do that work for you. It's all dependent on your cost, your reputation, and the current market. Sort by Sold instead of just seeing what everyone has it up for.

How recent is that? Lapels look like the height is right on the body, but the gorge shape is older-ish, right?

I started with a nail to the wall, some lights, and a hanger. A mannequin, if you're gonna do this on a regular basis, is highly recommended though.

Exactly.

 

A lot depends on your personal philosophy and your circumstances. Do you feel like getting max value from your item? Price it high (but fair), set it as a 'Good-till-cancelled' BINOBO and wait for the right buyer who'll buy it at or around that price (ala Brianpore). Might take a few weeks, or a couple of months, or even more. Do you want to get rid of inventory so you can use that money to buy more things to list? Set the price appropriately, list at as an auction with minimum starting price you're willing to live with, without regrets (like Wes does).

 

Take into account:

Getting max value vs clearing inventory

Storage space. Do you have enough space to stockpile these items for weeks/months without your place becoming messy?

How recent the label is.

Fabric quality/color/pattern (yours is guncheck, I think, which is sought after).

Single vent vs dual vents.

Seasonality of items.

Size (someone posted earlier that smaller sized jackets like 36 38 S are highly sought after since that's a rare size)

 

etc. etc.

 

Pricing fucks me up, too.

I would describe the material exactly as it is described on the tag (wool, wool/silk blend, etc).

I would describe the pattern as indiscernible unless I had a better / closer photo, as it could be one of 2 or 3 patterns viewed from here.

If you need 3x your money back fast, price it at ~ $79 with free shipping.  If you've gotten over the hump of thinking you need to earn your money back straight away (it's already spent, no hurry to get it back), price it at ~ $149 with an OBO (or higher if it's 100% cashmere or vicuna etc).   Then relist it / price drop as needed - that's what I personally would do.
