Is there a way to fix or at least soften that shine? I've passed on good sport coats because of it.

@capnwes I'm glad that orvis 2piece isn't a 46, my wallet would have been in serious trouble.

Heck, I may bid on it anyway just to own it...

a good steamer can help reduce the sheen, but only if it is minor. If the sheen is bad, your pretty much out of luck as the cloth is damaged. Be careful with the steamer though, you're pretty safe with pants and shirts, but it can damage other pieces; especially anything fused.

My current domestic situation makes it beyond annoying to dink around with lighting equipment. I ended up just buying a super fast lens and shooting photos in raw format. I can mostly get desired white balance results from the camera and anything I can't correct for with the camera can be done in PS.

Also, as it relates to background lighting colors, consumer psychology suggests that red backgrounds may actually work the best. The thought is that red backgrounds help induce state arousal (i.e. activation of the sympathetic nervous system) which, in turn, induces aggression. Aggressive bidders are more likely to bid higher/harder. You can read more here.


All that being said, I think red looks tacky/awful, so I don't use it.

Assume you guys list 50 items, how much of it actually gets sold for you guys? I was thinking of actually trying to use the bay, and was wondering if it was worth my time.

Wrong thread, but; Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
the economics are different for Canadians, the domestic market is pretty tiny, domestic shipping is comparatively expensive and nobody in the US wants to pay you for cross border shipping (they aren't used to it like we are), if you have the space to carry a bunch of inventory I would recommend using BINOBO and building shipping into your prices or being very clear about your shipping prices in your listing. Or you could send a box full of finds to a consigner every few months.

That said i think there are a few canadians here who slog it out on ebay, faceofboh maybe?

Just kidding, all the letters are capital, either way I've been looking for cords, so score.

 

Post a pic of the tag. If all the letters are capitalized, that should signify Big E. Unless I am mistaken.

Sorta thrifted... My wife and I used a Groupon deal for a discount on a meal at the local fondue place. Brilliant stuff, and less than half price. Four course meal consisting of salad, fondue, 27 varieties of meat (my faves were snow crab, alligator and scallops) and chocolate fondue. And a bottle of champagne of course!

After comparing the two, it seems that they are indeed the same jacket. Though I have to say, yours is way cooler, what with the leather and color. Also, my tags are different. As to the poplin, I honestly cant tell the difference between it and a regular cotton shell. Is yours also made in the USA?
