    Aw yes I added in shipping as well for some reason.

    I hope those aren't normal thrift prices!

    He sold it for $26, not thrifted it for $26. But it's not much higher than thrift around here. Double or triple cost.

    Implied figure of speech to some extent. In the grand scheme of things, $26 is pretty close to maybe $10-15 he actually spent compared to what it eventually sold for.

    It's like if someone said, "I could do this thrifting thing forever." you wouldn't say, "well, not forever because you'll die someday."

    I thrifted from the womb and fully intend to thrift from the grave.

    I need some help IDing this Polo piece. Is it Ralph Lauren Polo by Corneliani? Any other keywords to help this suit move? Thanks!

    Great just wanted to confirm the maker, thanks Wes! It is made in Italy, what would you guys price at for BNWOT inside label removed to prevent retail return?

    I need some bags like this, can you tell us what the dimensions are? I bought the ones you recommended for shirts and jackets from ULine and I need a new order so would like some of those as well.

    Are you talking the inside Polo label is removed?

    Is the neck label still there?

    I have never heard of removing the whole label, just black marking it or something.

    Selling it, I guess it depends on how much you paid for it and what your acceptable margin is. It also depends on color and style, a 3 button or DB black chalk stripe will sell for significantly less than a gray or navy 2 button.

    This is the order number and dimensions. It is a gusseted bag, with a 2" width, to allow for the thickness of the tie roll without crushing it.
