Damn brah, so fucking close.  The closest I know of is a BEAUTIFUL Brooks Brothers Double Breasted Suit Made In Usa Soft ShouldersMostly Unstructured 41R.

 

You don't want BEAUTIFUL, no deal.

 

The devil is always in the details man.

Anyway, I come for advice:

Fake/Genuine? (May be the fakiest fakes ever faked but sunglasses rarely pop up in the thread, and I am subsequently ignorant).

I have basically that exact suit listed and have gotten a lot of negative response for linking to it but here you go, make me an offer I realize $100 is too high http://www.styleforum.net/t/306314/beautiful-brooks-brothers-double-breasted-suit-made-in-usa-soft-shoulders-mostly-unstructured-41r

Have fun!

 

That is nicer than I imagined it would be, and the top / bottom storage is tits - I have lots of folded things that need a real place.  Argh OK maybe see if they have them in-store over the weekend.  I'd rather shop Target - not like they're any better, but the people at the WalMart here are just...ugh.

Correct. It was to minimize the circumvention of fees. I once bid on a saxophone (my first ebay transaction 7 years ago) it was like $20 starting bid. I had to cancel once I found the shipping was over $700.

 

If you use free shipping and the buyer chooses to upgrade, you only pay fees based on your selling price with free shipping. They are going to charge you anyway, so it might as well be included in the opening bid. It is all psychological anyway. An item $55 with free shipping will usually sell quicker than the same exact item at $50 with $5 shipping. It's the feeling of added value the buyer gets when they see the words "free shipping."

Don't take it too hard, I'd venture to say that at least 30% off us came into the room making the same mistakes. I know I sure did. I was quickly scolded for posting links to my ebay stuff. Fortunately there is now a thread for that. http://www.styleforum.net/forum/newestpost/177939

 

Once you are here for a while and absord more info and knowledge than you can possibly imagine from this great "family" you will be more than happy to throw some of your find into the ring for cheap as a return of favors. You'll figure it out.

Don't leave, just go back and read some of the 1000's of posts and you will get a feel for the thread itself and also learn a ton of stuff on what is good to thrift what is not, all the same questions get asked/answered, bitched about monthly when new people show up. You'll learn.

Interesting!!! Didnt know you dont have to pay fees if you offer free shipping with a cost to update shipping. Been offering more and more free shipping but this is just another good reason to do it. Thanks cheers.gif

I have a great idea.

 

 

 

You should use the suit to make an ammo bag.  I think your size measurements are wrong anyway.
