2 or 3 Etro shirts here in my size though I can't see me wearing them. What does the "Joyce" tag mean? Model? Women's? Seems like men's cut.



I'm picking up the loud floral print to flip.
The striped probably not.

A NWT Kiton Vicuna will fetch you thousands of dollars. It would not be in your favor to trade for something of way lesser value and/or have 60-70% of the amount go to a consignor.  There are many great consignor's on here but that would be a huge amount of $ to leave on the table


There is some truth to your statement, but there are more factors to consider. Yes, by not using a "great" consignor, you are able to keep all of the money. However, by not using a great consignor, you lose a lot of benefits.

A. Most consignors offer professional-quality photos to truly showcase the beauty of your item.

B. EXPOSURE! Most of the consignors on this forum have hundreds or thousands of dedicated (sometimes rabid) followers.

C. Effortless money. Your time is valuable. Consignors handle all of the tedious shipping, insurance, and follow-up issues.

Spoo is this anything
post #45846 of 59956
Regarding using a consignor for ONE item, the real question is: Does one feel they could make more profit selling independently, or would the exposure/rapport a consignor has boost the sale price enough to compensate for the consignor's cut.

With the item in question, it is possible a consignor would be worth it, especially if the current owner does not have an established reputation on other sales outlets. (This coming from some one that does not sell consignment for others, so a neutral party)

There are lots of folks here who use consignors and are consignors. Since were all on different footing i suggest shitcanning this disco and get back to bragging. $.02.

^ This.


Found this vintage Charvet the other day which was a fun pop for me. I thought it was hideous and would never sell but it went straight away for a BIN of £15. Is that too cheap or something? I'm happy with that profit but can't help feeling I need an education. Should I have plumped for more £$€¥?

Don't know about the resale, but that is a nice tie.

Scooped this Canali tie up for myself. Looks legit to me. Nice wool one.



Left a couple Armanis and a Zegna as they just seemed meh.
The Zegna tie could have been fake too. It had material tag in proper place on tail, but...

Shouldn't Zegna ties have a thicker stitch like this Canali does, on the backside to hold the folds together? I steer away from ties where the stitch seems really thin.

Who makes these, and is it possible they're shell? (Sorry, the pics turned out blurry. Small consignment shop. Was trying to be conspicuous.)





EDIT: Found this thread, which is no help.

EDIT2: Much more helpful.

PSA Update on Round Two Website

 

I bought a sweater with some undisclosed holes. I emailed them and received a reply a couple days later. They resolved with a partial refund. I think I would buy from them again. They seem to take care of any issues if they arise regardless of the final sale terms.
