Zegna cloth suits still seem to do well on ebay at least based on the one I sold. I can't remember what it sold for, but it was a reasonable profit on a super dated looking suit with no maker identified.

1) Sorry about that last post. I should know better.
2) Snagged a pair of black Ferragamo balmoral wingtips in 12D, pics soon! These puppies are getting flipped later so watch the ebay thread if you want them!
eh....something more like this typically gets a better response.

Don't get me wrong, I flip as much (probably more) as the next guy, but post's like these typically and

Public schools in my district aren't great, but there are a few Montessori/magnet schools that are on par with the best in the state. Unfortunately, admission is first come, first serve. On the plus side, I only have to go brought this process for her first year there.
Quick shirt collar maintenance question. I'm aware of the treatment for shirts that have stains already set in, but what do you guys do to keep the stains from coming back? I've tried a couple of different things, including oxyclean prior to washing and the shampoo pre-treatment which was said to help remove the skin oils. Neither are having great success. So do you just use The Method every now and again, or is there something else I can be doing?
Thanks in advance fellers.
+1 for using The Method for maintenance.
Just a guess - St. Ursula? The little rich white girl school not-so-ironically placed at the mouth of the ghetto?
Surprisingly well dressed group...
Yes, I am bored at work today...
Holy shit, someone track that guy on the left down.
I must have that topcoat.

Just don't say the word ebay in this thread -- easiest rule to follow. Post pictures of your stuff, and if someone is actually interested, they will contact you.
For what it's worth, I got told about it too when I started following and posting in the thread last year.....see below.
You know, capnwes and adaminaustin (no offense to you) are two things I think are wrong with this thread - lurkers who insist on finding thrifted things and turning them into thousands-and-thousands percent return. Sure, we all like the occasional suit we get for 15 bucks and sell for 250 or 300; but that's the super-rare event for most of us. Trying to force that to happen with random thrifted vintage BB and old YSL is one of the things I hate most about Ebay.
Also, does it rub anyone else super the wrong way to just post pictures and then an ebay auction link? He even used his auction titles as the link text... to be honest I'm wondering if this qualifies as out-and-out spam?
Back to the usual....
AlanC : OH MY GOODNESS! haha, that's really something else. I love seeing random unusual bits of old BB - or even just the uncommon, like the track jacket or white turtleneck I have/had, or a red leather women's jacket I left at a yard sale a year or so ago.
dwcopple - that auction is actually the one I based my price on. Figure mine are near-stone-mint and I do free shipping so 50 bucks is a bargain. Small world, eh?
Oh, and tonylumpkin - whatcha doing with the wide-shouldered Oxxfords? If they're suitable for larger size suits I might be interested in working something out, assuming they're available.
BTW guys, this weekend was my Styleforum Birthday.
