    What is the first thing that your search for on ebay when you login. For me I always do a "Oakley" search

    Whatever sport coats or suits are in my size (42L, 34W x 34L) are ending soonest. I like to see if there's anything I can swoop in on at the last minute, especially stuff that's misspelled or misidentified.

    Oakley's are tacky American eyewear.

    All my important searches, I feed to the eBay automated searcher that will send me email notifications when new postings match my criteria. I have one setup for "Ben Silver".

    I always do four quick searches, using "newly listed" for:

    Lobb
    "Edward Green"
    Sulka
    "Paul Stuart"

    The first 3 are usually fast, as new shoe listings in my size (12/13) are rare, and nice Sulka items are rare too. Paul Stuart is hit or miss, but occasionally some great finds.

    Churchs shoes, Bladen jackets or pocket squares depending on my mood.

    Usually it is:
    Oxxford
    "Paul Stuart"
    "jensen cufflinks"

    My employer recently blocked ebay and a number of other sites in the office so my time is more limited now.

    A number of LA guy's plus various obscure or defunct men's shops including Maus & Hoffman, Mr. Guy, Battaglia, New Republic, Chipp, Capper & Capper. Also looking for dress boots in my size, especially in a jodphur or western-by-way-of-Italy style. Last term is not really searchable, of course. It's like Justice Stewart's definition of pornography: "I know it when I see it."

    These days, "kiton"; in years past -- before knowing anything about shoes: "ferragamo 13". [​IMG]

    First, suits and sport jackets in my size, then Lorenzini shirts, then french cuffed shirts. I then go down to pants and shoes. Occasionally cuff links.

    These days, however, most categories have been flooded with cheap articles with fake Italian-sounding names.
