I would guess most people (at least I do) have sigs turned off as there is already too much white space taking of the posting area.

Awhile ago I picked up a Carroll & Co. sport coat with this label inside:

I read through the Labels, Heels and Nail Patterns thread and posted a question in there, but came up with nothing.  Then, today I found a Paul Stuart SC with the exact same label - any ideas on the maker? 

 

I know Samuelsohn makes some stuff for PS, but I thought that was just the "made in Canada" clothing and this was made right here in God's United States.

That doesn't look like the Samuelson label I know.

That could be one of the creepiest things I have seen in awhile. How is there only 1 "dislike" out of all those people that have watched it.??

It's a niche video for fetishists. And yes, that is the word. I've heard about this phenomenon before- there are people who get off on videos of shoes in motion. Disturbing, I like much more straightforward things like tranny midgets running a train on a donkey.

That guy is BS ing. He said he bought them from a Hanover catalog in 1996. That was at least 15 years after they closed up shop.

Dude, we poke fun, but really: shoe fetishists must have it made. Imagine waking up each morning and seeing thousands of nakey women walking around!

$33 for most jackets and I've used them before.  I was very pleased because they also do edit: no longer do repairs (they call with a quote and ask if you want them done).  Good luck!

Try these guys: http://www.redclaysoul.com/?p=2619

I will tell you about my own experience juggling university, private life, social life, selling, and work.

I had a rare LP trading / flipping thing going on (I also dealt in antique guns, coins, and rare or discontinued weapons such as crossbows by manufacturers like Barnett). I eventually made it profitable to the point I could clear $15K net profit a year. Add to that a job as a bouncer on weekends (Friday + Saturday night), and holiday employment in construction, I ended up being one of the rare students with a net positive balance in the bank owing nothing other than a few credit card bills. But let me tell you, that little business nearly killed me socially and grades wise. I could theoretically have cleared $40K net profit a year if I wanted to, but decided in my second year of that venture to seriously scale back my operations (took a girlfriend to give me the boot, poorer than expected grades, and a bunch of pissed off friends).

Thrifting for you on this scale is not going to work for you, even with a finely tuned business model. I can already sense you are on the edge, reaching that breaking point I had when wheeling and dealing in LP's, coins and weapons. Only you can decide what is best for yourself, but if I put myself in your shoes, I cannot help but bite my knuckles.

Either you will kill your business or it will kill you. I suggest scale back and enjoy your life. I do not sense you are having much fun doing this.

Mexicutioner gave you some solid advice on how to form a simple business model that can guarantee a quick turnover and some all important cash in your back pocket. The business models that apply to guys like Spoo, Mainy, and Nataku do not necessarily copy paste itself to you at this time.
