You must be doing it wrong... (Click to show)

This is just the sales from my sport coats since October 1st. 

 

 

 

This is SC sales for the last 90 days..... with a 5 week break in September.

 

 

 

 

This is just my Hobby, which I do in addition to my regular full time job. Granted...it's a big fucking hobby and a lot of hard work.

This message will be deleted in 24 hours to minimize lurker thrift waves

That just seems unreal to me.. When a blazer at the thrift store costs around 10-15, and on ebay I had to re-list the same harris tweed blazer 3 times just to get 29 for it.. Not worth the time or effort at all. I found a nice brooks brothers wool blazer today, looked up ebay completed auctions, the most one went for was 39.. Still, not worth it at all.

Spoo had a SC in the B&S by a Zegna line that was made in Mexico

Helps if you have great pictures, reputation, description, and probably loyal client base like capnwes.  Also, having a large inventory listed on eBay can create some synergies, since I look at the "seller's other items," of any item i find on eBay.  Either way, if you would like to continue this discussion there is a separate thread.

But the real bragging from today is that I got a new job. 20 percent pay bump. Strictly writing instead of running a magazine. WORK FROM HOME.

As promised a couple of days ago, here's a thrift fit featuring the Grey/Black/White Harris Tweed that Wes sent me last week. I forgot the hat though. My bad.

On the plus side, I matched my fit to the background!

That's pretty fantastic. If that was a short, I'd be all over it. Unless, of course, you measured the entire back of the coat with the collar included. Then, we might be in business.

Went back to get the BB duffle coat, but it was missing the hood so I left it.

That's what they told me when I enrolled. When the 8 bills came they were 12.75%, 8%, 7%, 6%, 6%, 6%, 4.5% and 4.5%. I've already knocked out the 12.75% and half of the 8% which are also the two with the largest balances. I use the snowball method, plus make extra payments regularly. The part that burns me, is a lot of my classmates were fucking idiots who had grants, scholarships, government funding, or mommy and daddy to help pay for some or all of it. They earned C's and D's. I busted my ass and got a 4.0 and couldn't get any kind of help. On the plus side of that, I am part of a very small percentage of the class who is employed.

Thank you, ATLjon! Unfortunately, I'm afraid I did the measurement correctly, from the back of the collar to the bottom of the skirt. But I am looking forward to sending it over to a good home spam[1].gifsmile.gif.
