I wish my arms were much shorter so I could buy these!

THese are perfectly my size with my current, er weight situation.

Cant just let them fall to someone we don't know.

Public disclosure: I bid 22.22 on three of them. If someone in this size wants them more, outbid me. Chances are i'll get crushed anyway by the general eBay populace but now you know.

For those who missed out on the pebble grain boots last week, there are more on Ebay at $280 a pop from this buyer.

Size 10 and 10.5 scotch grain, Black Fleece boots.

Is this Eddie's ebay handle?

Yes, it will make your taxes a little more complicated - but, if you have a great haul while someone else photographs, you will make more than if you yourself do the photographing...


I am a poor grad student.  Really, really poor right now because the VA is behind in processing GI Bill claims.  Regardless, I'm in the process of hiring help and hope to have someone placed in the next week.  The problem is during the good seasons I maintain too much inventory and the demands of school are so much greater.  I simply can't process it fast enough alone and still get everything done that I need and while I trust the VA to pay for my schooling, timing is everything.  Health insurance and rent need to get paid.  Ergo, I flip.

 

The hoarder reference comes up every now and again, and I know I have a problem when I've got cleaned and pressed Kiton shirt only piles waiting to be photographed which I trip over on the way to the bathroom.  Ever have a Brioni sport-jackets avalanche?  Its happened to me.  But the way I see it, even if I pay someone $15 to help for a few hours, I'm "right-sizing" by recouping my capital faster, decreasing my clutter, reducing the chance of getting moths, getting greater turnover, increasing my short-term profit and surviving another month before I need to ask my parents for help (which is really sad, I know).

 

Last week I walked past  6 pairs of $4.99 NWT Brooks Brothers Chinos because I knew I won't be able to sell them fast enough.  Sure, you may get only $30 on eBay, and some of you won't take those odds, but that is a better profit margin than most businesses even if you have help.  I'd gladly pay someone $15 an hour to help me post those.

Yes, I have had decent luck with Karan. Look for the black labels and it all depends on who the maker of the suit is. Picked up St. Andrews before also .

 

Ended up leaving the 3 Button Unvented Orphan for $25 confused.gif

BUT on a better note, I found a few FIRST TIME ITEMS (no Kiton) but it's always exciting after doing it this long to find new stuff I've never found before.

ftfy XD
 
also my samuelson suit came today it fits almost perfect (gorge is like an inch lower than I prefer but still very workable, I love the soft shoulders and quarter lining though) except the pants need to be hemmed (which I have never experianced before with my long ass legs) and I want to nip the waist some more even though that is not in traditional sack suit style. fit pics to come! also I can't decide if I want to keep the cuffs or not? will they make me look shorter? that is something I could use considering I am 6 5' now XD
also what is the deal with samuelson aren't they a canadian maker? if so why are they so trad?
