This isn't great advice to follow. Classic Burberry's trenches still do relatively well and IMO are an excellent product. If it's in good shape with belt, liner and made in England you should be able to get $100 US without breaking a sweat and $200+ isn't out of the question. 

 

Yes, people love the Nova Check and finding those are like printing money but Burberry still has a big following. If it's thrift price, there's not much I would leave. 

 

And finally it is usually the polos that fetch the least because they aren't all that expensive new. Most used polos end around 20 to 50 from my experience. 

 

Keep in mind, I'm not a seller, just avid eBay lurker so your mileage may vary

@spruce yes, I meant to respond to that statement about not picking up stuff just because it has the old Burberry label. Still plenty of great stuff that is older.

Hmm ok thanks for the feedback guys, still learning the ropes. Will definitely keep a sharper eye out but I guess the only older Burberry stuff I've ran across are sport coats that are not great quality which did not appear to do too well when I looked at closed listings.

They made the switch from Burberry's to Burberry London (with a blue label) in like 99 and as a results the problem with Burberry's blazers/suits is they are dated. I know some people here can do well with them but as you've seen from sold listings it's generally a good idea to pass, especially while you learn what's licensed and what not. But other items like jackets, dress shirts, etc keep an eye out for 

 

And hey 500th post :)

 

There's something about tuxedo bear that just makes you smile lol

Old Burberry Blazers with metal knight logo buttons I usually kop if cheap just to harvest and resell the button, those always do well and turn quickly

So.. I e-thrifted a LB Luxury Vintage Sorrento

 

 

 

 

Then this weekend happened..

 

From today:

 

NWOT Barba

 

 

NWT Kitty

 

 

Kitty ties

 

 

 

Non-vented Kitty cash

 

 

NIB Alden drop

 

 

 

 

Oh yes.

 

 

 

Big ups to Coach @SpooPoker for the estate sale lowdown and etiquette. This was my first.

 

I'm a smart guy and woke up with 2 hours of sleep at 7am the morning of with a massive hangover due to very very poor decisions the previous night, but I kept truckin. 

 

Ended up going today as well to pick up a few other things on the cheap.

 

To all the estate sale veterans.. you guys would have been quite proud of my heaping pile of pre-sort swag I was able to build up. This one's for you:

 

 

RL Home. All made in Italy. Did NOT pay those listed prices.. haha!

 

 

 

Between the Sheets duvet cover. $999 MSRP and I picked up two of them. Looking forward to lying in this after I bathe in Perrier.

 

Dyson V6 Animal with all tools

 

 

Manfrotto 3205 and 190XDB with 390RC2 and 3130 heads

 

Mint Boss pants and wool beanies

 

 

Borrelli

 

 

Wilkes croc belt

 

 

 

New single button peak lapel Zegna tux

 

 

 

Spoo called out that these were JM Weston from the sale preview potato pictures. Sure enough, they were.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then this..

 

 

 

 

 

fucking..

 

 

 

 

 

happened.

 

 

 

 

NA on these for now.

Also, forum, if you're into streetwear and haven't heard what these guys are doing, I'd give their YouTube a look. It's a buy/sell/trade put together by a few people that has taken off.

FWIW the content tag matches a SS09 Prorsum women's coat that I found a few weeks ago and some of the legit Prorsum listings on eBay. Not all of them say Prorsum on the content tag.
