    As I'm cleaning out the house and the storage unit, I have a lot of old clothing to get rid of. Some of it just doesn't fit, some of it's not my style anymore, some of it was purchased on ebay and I just never liked it. [​IMG]

    I'll try to offer any of the finer or more unique pieces here first, but I was hoping someone could recommend an ebay seller or shop to take them on consignment. I just don't have time to sell it all myself.

    Any suggestion?

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    A Harris (World Class Consignment) comes to mind.

    i was just about to say the same thing.
    although im not sure he does just any consignment, it may be relegated to quality shoe items only.

    Yeah, mostly I have jackets and suits to get rid of, that sort of thing. Medium to medium-high quality. Probably a few pairs of shoes, but not Greens or anything like that...more like Churches and AE. [​IMG]

    Well, that's the root of the problem here. A couple of years ago, I was a size 52. Now I'm a 42R. Since it looks like I've found an equilibrium and am not putting any weight back on, I have a bunch of stuff in varying sizes (as I lost weight...and a few things from ebay that never fit right, anyway...too long or whatever).

    For the same reason, most of the medium and smaller stuff isn't of fantastic quality (more like older Oxxfords, Zegna soft, Brooks, Gianluca, etc.). Of course, the 52R bespoke and Brioni is really great...but for the bespoke, I'm considering taking the fabric, which took me so long to find, and just having it remade by the tailor that made it in the first place. Still debating that one. [​IMG]

    Anyway, there's a range of styles. I'll put a thread here of the better stuff (probably after I get back from vacation), but wanted to talk to someone about unloading the rest, as I don't really have time to become and ebay seller. [​IMG]

    That's an interesting thought, are you serious? I would love to see it attempted. Do you really think you can have your Bespoke suits remade? I'm not a tailor but it seems to me that would be more work than just picking out some fabric anew, and starting over!

    Any tailors out there that might care to comment?

    PS: I think the most interest you might get from A Harris at World Class Consignment, to consign your stuff, would be for your Bespoke and Brioni stuff. He seems to only list really superlative merchandise.

    PPS: I don't know if you would want to bother, but I think you would realize the maximum prices for your items if you sold them yourself, on Ebay!
