    Hello everyone,

    If you needed to sell an entire wardrobe of premium menswear, who would you contact and where would you sell it? I'm based in England.

    My father sadly passed away last year, and I have all of his beautiful clothing and shoes. I think it's time to sell them, as you can barely move in our garage and to be frank it's quite sad seeing them all sat there. I loved my dad and I loved seeing him in his beautiful outfits. If I were his size and male I would keep them all, I'd be set for life but sadly I am not.

    I am so confused about what to do, I really don't want the hassle of selling each individual item on eBay or the buy/sell section etc but I don't know of any secondhand re-sellers that would take the lot.

    I was hoping that you all may have some advice.

    I attached a picture of some of his shoes, I started to clean and sort them yesterday. These are all John Lobb, apart from 1 which is from Harry of London.

    That's why they have things like the post office/UPS/FedEx/etc. Novel idea....no?
    I am pretty sure Spoo gets items shipped to him from outside of the US.

    Package costs, insurance, import tax / customs ... etc. it ain't that easy ...

    Do you know you get quoted a rate on a pontential sald Price. I don't know the us rules, but it all depends on size and value...

    and if there are exotics, good luck getting cites ... just my 2 cents. If he would be in the states, I would asap contacted spoo...

    If you time it right, you can get a roundtrip NYC to London flight for $350 - $400.
