Is Wichita like a utopian version of 1957 where the college kids wear blazers to family functions?

I don't think the Columbia and Maus and Hoffman shirts do that well for resale.  But, if the M&H measures closer to 2XL, then I might take it off your hands for a reasonable profit.   I tried Cole Haans.  They are a hard sell.  Those look pretty cool, but they are tough to get much for.   I would have passed on all the ties except maybe 1-2 just to keep and wear.  

 

If theystuff you brought to the dry cleaners isn't really special stuff, I wouldn't have spent the money on dry cleaning.  That is hard to recoup that if you are reselling.  UNLESS, it is something special.    I won't buy anything that needs a real cleaning unless its pretty special or if its for personal use.   It is surprising what a steamer and clothes brush can do for free.

Furniture bros... Chromcraft looks like a thing according to my Google skills. Thoughts?

I am not really buying to resale. I am buying things that I would like to keep and wear.

Yes, of course.  With OCBD and repp striped ties.  And the Dads all smoke pipes and have nicknames for their kids like Slugger and everyone in the whole town only drives American made cars and on Sunday Morning the entire town is in church except that one damn atheist family that owns all the grocery stores that stay open on Christmas.  

 

We also have no weeds in any of our lawns.  Well, except for the poor folks that live just outside of town in the trailer park. But, they are not WICHITANS they are County folks.  Every boy under 18 has already earned his Eagle Scout. You can buy Cigarettes at the Gas Station out of town without any tax, but nobody talks about that because no one smokes or drinks (except the damn lawyers and they drink at their offices!).  

 

 

Just kidding.  Actually, I have just had good luck with Navy Blazers.  The last several have been bought by Moms for their sons.   Seriously. I have gotten emails asking about the sizes because they are buying them for their Sons.  Now that I think about it, that is a little weird.

The Chromecraft Sculpta "Star Trek" chairs are the grail...but some people dig the more everyday ones as well.
