I don't really get it. I know there are fakes out there, but let's stick to what we can assume to be legit clothes. For example, I wonder how a seller can make a profit on e.g. a retail $895 RLPL sweater, when the asking price is about $200? How come Ralph Lauren is willing to sell such a sweater for less than $200 to those eBay sellers? Recently I've seen the famous RLPL cable knit sweater end up on eBay, here's an example. I've seen it in orange for even less, it was below $200. Heck, when I saw it on ralphlauren.com last year they had it on sale for about $400 or so. Clearly I know nothing about retailing, so I'd appreciate some simple price reasoning here... of course though I do know the simple principle of asset and market.
