So it would seem

This is the exact same scarf. And mine's minty minty minty. Another one with a more brown, less umber colorway sold for over $300 in USD (sold in GBP).

Anyone know how to date a Hermes scarf based on the mfr and content tags?

it seems like this thread has become an echo chamber of sorts, where we have convinced ourselves that used men's clothing is worth $$$$$$$$$$ just based on the label/maker. for example, if all you knew was this thread, you'd think USED CORNELIANI-MADE POLO IS WORTH SO MUCH MONEY. but a quick look at ebay completed listings shows that used joints really aren't worth all that much on the open market.

Although, it is cashmere. Still not sure it would cover a student loan.

Watch it Dig....you may bump into me there. I already hit the GW and what is now a burned down SA on that road.

The average right now for Italian PRL jackets is about $85. Interestingly, the average for Corneliani jackets is much lower...about $40).
So, it depends on what you consider a lot of money really. If you pick it up for $5-10, I think a return of $65-70 is pretty good. Not too many more effective ways to use your money, especially at so little risk.
Of course, one jacket will not a college education provide.

Average Cost $10

Average Sale $80

Ebay Fee $8

Paypal $4

Shipping $6

Profit $52

 

Do this once a week $52 x 52 = $2,700.

 

Not too shabby for 1 item and most of us can find one item a week.

You should have stopped in and said hello! You must be the reason that I never find much at that GW and as for Sally? She'll never be the same. BTW, they just closed the SA down in Pasadena near my home. I never found too much there but they had a nice restroom and that counts for a lot in my book!

Peeps PM'd about the shoes, though, but I think they all had small feet, sorry mainy...

For reals, outside of LA, I don't understand all this great 'streetwear' cropping up. That five zip rayxlieu found is straight up inlove.gif

I continue to find Brooks and Tyrwhitt, Zegna and Corneliani, but nothing really post-worthy. Damnit.

This site has proved helpful to me a couple of times:

post #63795 of 110608
Couple things from today:

Thrift.





Ervell is my first. It honestly scares me to know that the thrift knows this label or can spot quality this good. They had it marked up pretty high, but still a decent price and I couldn't pass on my first Ervell.

Discount store. Think I found my new go-to label for SW&D-ish shirts. These shirts by Brooklyn Tailors feel amazing and blow BoO out of the water in terms of fit. Also ran into member ilikethelights as I was walking in who found some cool stuff too.
