Beams in a thrift is an insane find. Beams F is their more italian tailored clothes line. Beams F store sells the likes of lardini, boglioli, etc.

Where the hell is that clap meme? Same goes for 330CK
post #64313 of 121831

^^ Wow, Spoo! That's a dream haul! I'm glad to see Jack&Jones stuff in the states. I have a goat leather bomber jacket and a synthetic trench. Both bought on discount. I didn't knew HF made for KL. I think that Stanley Blacker SC is the same one Wes got. Also, that CNH is awesome! I've never seen them in a thrift store with my two eye balls. Any of the stuff 40s?

well shit guys my first round of a bunch of shit I sent to spoo is ending tomorrow and it is at like thrift store prices, I might even lose money on a few of them. maybe I should stick to dealing only with people on the thread frown.gif (my frustration isn't directed at spoo he is a pleasure to work with and is probably the best consigner around, I just guess my items are just not very good...)
but I mean I got like 40349058458 pms on this rag & bone....

http://www.ebay.com/itm/310598044683?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

and this isaia is cool right?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/360593807150?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

this is a freaking cantarelli (for facconable..) with dual vents tasteful pattern ect. 0 FREAKING BIDS I mean shit it is a nice sportcoat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/350716223240?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

ugh I might have to get a "real job"


It goes with the territory dude.

This is the reality:

Take all these goods and on one 10 day stretch a few bidders are gunning for them. Result = profit and some decent prices. On another 10 days stretch, nobody even notices. Just the way it friggin goes my man! It sucks but that is eBay for you - up n down random unpredictable etc etc.....

Some sellers do the BIN with offer and keep the items on a fixed(ish) price for even months eventually getting what that item should of gone for. Spoo has gone for the random nature of auctions, presumably because he has such a high turnover that placing items on fixed BIN / OBO would mean a chaotic inventory and a mountain of work keeping track of everything. Lower volume sellers can take the BIN/OBO approach. In some ways the 10 day auction is superior - its temporal nature means bidders out there have to bid - although one needs the bidders in the first place during a short time span. On the other side, How many BIN/OBO items have many watchers and few to no offers? BIN/OBO says "put me in watch I will hang around". Auction says "make your stand, once gone always gone". One approach is slightly more deterministic, the other subject more to pure randomness. Neither way is superior - law of averages will always apply but one will only see these averages over a larger number of samples (i.e. over 100's of auctions versus a select handful).

That's the general definition I follow, usually reserved for something I think is 10+ yrs old and not something from last year, for example.

Also, keep in mind, going along with what Klobber said, the low volume/high volume & large # of samples applies especially when consigning as far as the $$ you end up getting....since you are only getting a cut of the sale price.  The odds that just a few items- say 1,2, or 3 items will all be home runs  via auction are not necessarily that high....but if you auction and/or consign to auction a higher number of items, the law of averages will even things out. When Ive consigned items Ive generally sent a bunch of stuff at one time, and Ive been surprised in both ways- items I expected to go high went low, and vice versa. Overall things seem to average out.

Works the same if you are auctioning things yourself, but someone like Spoo likely has a better chance of getting a higher average across the board due to high traffic & visibility, great pics, etc.,  compared to someone like me, personally.

Whoa! Beams in a thrift....in the US?! That is a crazy find!

Beams is a higher-end Japanese department store that carries house label stuff as well as other makers. All very expensive. I spent about a few hours in one of their Tokyo stores. A plain jane button-down is about $250-$300. That suit is an excellent find! Retail was likely north of $1500.

Just curious.

My wardrobe has gotten bloated to the point that I can go months... MONTHS! Without wearing the same thing twice.

What do you guys do to help limit personal pickups? Or do you do a cleaning every now and then and sell some of your personal stuff?

My fiance and I will be moving soon and I am dreading hauling all of this stuff.

I have a few rules as I current;y take up 3/4 of our walk-in closet. The wife has no objections but I can't stand clutter. If it doesn't get used, it needs a new home.

- If it doesn't get worn once in a season (Spring/Summer or Fall/Winter), it gets sold/traded/whatever. If it's not worth selling/trading, then re-donated.
- If it doesn't fit well and I'm not crazy about it, it goes.
- If it is similar to something I already own and doesn't get worn to the point where I need more than one, I keep the nicer one and get rid of the other.
- My style has changed quite a bit and fluctuates fairly often. If it doesn't fit my current aesthetic, it goes. Who knows if I will ever go back to that style.
- If it isn't comfortable, sell it. Some people take style over comfort. I'm not the complete opposite, I'm more like the happy medium. Style and comfort.
