I'm embarrassed to tell you that I didn't know there was a trade thread. Every trade for me has come from this thread.
In 2012 when I decided to redo my wardrobe, I bought 20-30 things off ebay. Every jacket needed 150 of alterations. So a $50 suit was costing $200 in alterations. After about $2000 in alterations and still fit compromises, I decided to find a tailor.
So now, m2m suits from a guy in dc with an awesome alterations tailor, shirts from cego, m2m pants or thrifted with alterations. Consequently, I don't really look at stuff for sale other than ties and the occasional pair of shoes. For aj and oxxford, I would buy online and then deal with the tailoring.
Good tip. Thanks. I need to start checking stuff out again.
