    RTC, I was thinking the same thing: it's got elements of a shooting jacket to my eye as well. .

    Haha, unredacted.

    I saw jgill post about the 'field' jacket. Maybe that'll be a better catch all.

    The shoulder reminds me of a shooting jacket, and the pockets look like things you could use while hunting.

    Actually, I think you guys are absolutely right. I didn't catch that padded shoulder. Definitely a shooting jacket. I don't think I've every seen a denim one, though.

    ^^ it's a mutt stylistically for sure, but definitely has elements of a shooting jacket.

    Where did u find ur 1099 via pp website?
    Also, We gotta print out Schedule C from Outright!
    I don't use outright through eBay, rather I go straight to the website, no the eBay app version. But, through the site, I also get reverted to 2013 until I manually change it. Would be nice to know how!

    EDIT: little digging around found where my "tax documents" were located in PP...

    By the way, anyone switch over to the new PayPal yet? I think ima give it a go!
    Yea...ran into this last week with a shipment to Russia...I just went Priority and crossed my fingers. 1st class registered mail get u any insurance?

    With the shoulder padding I'd call it a shooting jacket or something like that.

    Hey guys,

    only picked up one tie at my last trip to the thrift, though it was a charvet. and it sat at home a couple days until I decided to try and up my photo game. I've got one of those lamps that has five bendy heads on it, which i can use to point down at something put in one super bright white light and four natural yellow ones, then I got a hand held lamp with another really bright white light, and decided to try and model Spoo's tie photos with a black background, but all I had was my guitar case, the textured background actually worked pretty well, I thought.

    Anyway, I composed (what I thought) was a cool attention grabbing primary photo, and then it sold BIN in an hour at $45. hope I didn't under price it, lol. Seems to be what most are going for, and an hour turn around aint half bad.

    Consult a tax pro, but, I don't believe you have to report it unless it's both: [200 or more transactions] and [$20k or more in sales]. Technically you're prolly supposed to if less than that, but if PayPal didn't report it to the IRS and you didn't get a 1099-K from them, I would blow it off (consult a tax pro).

    Log onto PayPal.
    Choose History --> Tax Documents
    ...and see what awaits you.

    They'll also send you one in the mail, if applicable.

    Honestly, the IRS wants you to report every bit of income. Heck, they want you to self-report use tax that you owe for online purchases where sales tax wasn't withheld (well, that's more for state taxes, but still true).

    $45 for a Charvet seems reasonable. I just had one go for $26 at auction.
