    Hi All,

    I've been lurking for sometime and now am making my first post. I am currently a college student and am looking at starting my first business but would like your advice as to whether my idea would work. Through a buddy's family I am able to get brand new Gucci suits and sell them at prices between $700 - $1000. The suits would be full canvass, thus the ones made by Zegna mainline, and I have access to multiple colors and sizes, although it is limited due to it coming directly from Gucci. Looking at eBay this is inline with the prices being sold.


    Although this would be a low margin gain I expect to be able to sell 20+ a month which would give me good income as a college student. My plan is to sell globally on eBay and other sites possibly get my own if need be, and locally through facebook, craigslist, etc. I have read a few posts on here like the one below and know what I should add to my postings in order for customers to know exactly what they are getting before they buy.


    Do you all think this is a good plan, and if so what else should I think of and what sizes would you all recommend to get at first for quicker turnover? Below is one that I bought for myself, they quality is amazing on it compared to anything I could buy at these price points.

    Thank you all for your input.
