As far as I'm concerned, @Understatesman is just doing the lord's good work of importing nice jackets in my approximate sizes from East to West. Still kicking myself a little for not splurging on the last FCL Raymond.
I tried to get him to buy-and-then-sell-you-at-a-discount a Campus Stallion, to no avail.

Today's deep thought: If you change just one letter, No Man Walks Alone becomes something entirely different.

Here's a Freewheelers M422/G1 in size 40. Presently sub-$1000 unless you all bid it up.

My friend's kid had his first kid.
So today they took delivery of a Blake Hedley Baby Buckley I sent.
This is the stock photo, because you know, posting pics of other people's kids on the internet is no bueno.

Well, I was off by a couple of days, but still a pretty good estimate imho.

Also, sigh. 😔

@Understatesman i am curious do you keep a ledger and etc of the sales? I am interested about how long it takes to flip the jackets and what the profit/loss is looking like. You don't have to be specific i respect privacy but i am just curious how this whole thing is going.

This is incredible. Hard sell putting up that sort of money on my own kid when I know how often he seems to be covered in some sort of wetness, but I love it.

Every jacket is a loss. But I can afford it. I make stupid money so I don't mind it.

Flip process: Buy jacket, come up with some ridiculous reason why I don't like it, try to sell it for a phat discount, take reasonable offers just to move them quickly, move on.

Ledger: I paid $XXXX on that day. I sold for $XXX on this day. Write it down. Keep receipts.

Profit/loss: I don't wanna think about it. But there's no way this is remotely profitable. Fortunately, my income has a lot of head room profit-wise so these losses are just less money I'm going to pay in taxes.

Making "stupid money", but still writing off private leather jacket purchases makes me kinda 😔
