Are brooks brothers shirts at 12 a pop worth picking up? They look new. All sizes. 16 1/2, 17. I need an 18 so it doesn't fit me. I'm here now and would want to trade them.

^ If slim or extra-slim, made-in-the-USA, must-iron oxford cloth with a button-down collar, yes—though the trade value still won't be extravagant. Also if Black Fleece or Golden Fleece.

Otherwise, pass.

I passed with help from a board member, after looking at them while liking new, they were just well cared for and disposed of when stains formed near the pockets in yellow. Probably could of gotten them out but not worth being out of pocket for, I don't think.

Heading to Vienna early for an all day outing and just looking up some addresses. This is a picture of one shop's display under "sales and deals". I like their style biggrin.gif

Here are some rules I follow as someone who does it as a hobby. 

 

1. "Know what you dont know"

 

Study eBay / Saks for what sells and for how much. Dont be limited to this thread.

 

2. Know your avg tranaction cost/profit .

 

I want to make about 30-40$ per item. So, I will not buy anything that I cant sell for that much. Rember your profit is made in the purchase. (12.99 No, No)

 

3. Dont shop Labels

 

Yes, that DB 6X1 non-vented Armani looks nice... but will it sell? Holding costs should be taken into consideration.

 

Here are somethings I will not buy (for reselling) because eBay is flooded with them or not worth my time.

 

BB shits (except what chet metioned)

Ties (except Kiton, Tom Ford, Hermes)

Made in Italy tags ( if you dont know the maker pass)

Tags with Bespoke or Savile Row

Custom made shirts (Ascot Chang & Tom James)

Orphan Jackets

Dirty Items (pee stains, yellow collar ect...)

 

Also, please do not list how much or where you purchased your items for. 

 

Prices mysteriously go up on items at thrift stores when listed in this thread.

 Oh, the ring on my finger definitely screams Match.com... Ironic, since that's where I met my wife.

Excellent advise, and thanks for sharing. I'm primarily a jersey and a baseball cap type if guy, so if I see something like that at a store I know what I'm looking at.

But dress clothes-- no freaking clue. At all.

I need to start dressing like a man, can't wear piazza jerseys and batman shirts forever.

Yeah man, favorite player growing up. I really wear one of my 25 Piazza jerseys twice a month, it's too hot down here.

Why, what's wrong with that lol?
