+1 to what everyone is saying. The uglier the better. I usually pass on plaid solids or basic stripes.

Hey all!

 

Brand new to SF, been lurking here for a bit but this is my first post. Been thrifting for about 7 years now, up until recently it was all shoes though (mainly Jordans as I run a restoration business). Now I've started to get more into the menswear side of thrifting, mostly blazers. My question for those who flip blazers/suits that they thrift, do you tend to get everything professionally dry-cleaned before listing it? This seems as though it could get expensive, but also could be a good selling point. Any replies are appreciated. Looking forward to becoming a part of this community!

Probably shouldn't be this excited for a dirty old sleeping bag, but I am. Will be adding this Class 5 Mountaineering Equipage(!) goose down mummy bag to my camping kit. 5 bucks. Check out that huge zipper! Picked up an even older goose down bag last weekend at an estate sale for free, no tags that I have discovered though.

Welcome! You restore trainers? Would be cool to see some pics of what you do.

I think most people here use steamers rather than get things dry cleaned and just avoid picking stuff up that's bad enough to need dry cleaning unless it's a very desirable item. If I see something that needs a dry clean I'll factor that into the price if I'm planning on resale, but you're right, cleaning and minor repairs can add up quickly.

Can anyone explain the idea of these boots to me? I've seen a lot of men's boots, but never anything like this.  The toe cover area attaches to the lace-up portion about 2" from the cut edge. They look military, but again, the odd leather cap confuses me. There didn't seem to be a steel toecap inside.

My wife works in a foundry and a lot of guys there wear boots with guards like that (only they cover a bit higher), it keeps the laces from catching fire.

Oh *man* what a beautiful coat. I just spent the evening perforating my fingers replacing the loops and toggles on a vintage Gloverall. Leather is just no fun to sew by hand, not least because leather needles have a damnably sharp knife point.  I'm not even sure how one would sew on rope loops such as your coat has.

This. I rarely cop Robby G's... But when I do, they're the most ornate Paisley ones in excellent shape. Those seem to have the best profit margins.

Everyone is spot on about the skeet strategy. I will buy the less ornate ones if I can get them on the low end of true thrift. People will still buy them. However, people seem to want to bid more on the outrageous colors and woven designs. We have seen the same thing happen with Coogi over the years. Who wants to buy a solid-colored Coogi sweater? Nah, man... That thing has to look like a Salvador Dali impression of a pack of molten Life Savers. The wilder the better.

Dry cleaning is worth it.  i get most items Cleaned before listing.

I took a business trip down there a while ago and hit a few shops. Absolutely nothing. A friend of mine took a trip down there solely to thrift and came back with nothing.
