Stick to flipping RL black/purple label shirts for a good return nod[1].gif .

I agree. I see quite a few of these. They're great quality shirts but I find margins on shirts are thin. Spoo mentioned on the ebay thread that even he has thin margins on shirts, something about, in his words, "the body's first line of defence." uhoh.gif People just don't go for them.

Anyway, if anyone wants me to keep an eye out for particular sizes of Eton, PM, I'm happy to proxy.

Agree, although I always tend to pick something up if I can get it in the 3$ range vs the $7.50 range, sounds like not much difference, but it adds up when you sell 50 items.  Since you are already listing your bigger items, why not go through the trouble of selling a few more singles-level items. Then every once in awhile something will pop that you don't expect, and its worth it.

Bought these from Hoofit.  I'm wearing 'em today!

I somewhat agree, although I've found that, if I'm in the store anyway and the brand is decent, I may as well pick it up. If I can buy Canali or Zegna for $7 and sell for $30 after 10 minutes worth of photo-taking, why not? Heck, I recently flipped an Etro shirt for $60. Ain't gonna say no to that. By the way, hello from Germany. Hopefully, some wunderbar finds to post soon.

 I robbed a zenga store today. Not really the best ties in the world, but at $8, whatever.

 

 

And I picked up this anonymous seven-fold:

Yea it is PRL (Polo by Ralph Lauren) but I think he is just referencing it as RLBL (Ralph Lauren Blue Label)

I like Burberry and all, but does it get faked?

Had several trades and buys go well in the last month or two: thanks to ilikethelights, 46n2, wes, Cotton Dockers, eazye, grendel, and goneAWOL (although technically that was at "that other site") for some good deals. Now that school has started, maybe I'll even get some thrift fit pics up soon.

I'm still pining for a certain houndstooth SC - if you're lurking, you know who you are.

What's the deal with a lot of people buying kind of ugly ties just beacause they are from famous brands and priced at 10 bucks?

I mean, what's the pointing of buying ties you don't want just because they are cheap?

 

A lot of people are doing great finds but a lot of people are also buying shit.
