Love you bro^That's fresh coming from you lol
FWIW I find it odd whenever the topic of selling clothes and resale price being a factor especially for this niche group. I confess it is a mental road block I experience myself too but something I am less and less struggling with. I think its the sunk cost fallacy. Hypebeast resellers have us beat in that regard, there is even less of a demand for clothing that makes you look like your grandpa.
Just as an update, I've already started a pile of clothing that I will be donating to some place local or a drop off bin. The more I think about it, I think I can feel okay with even high ticket items I purchased in the past. I think it will be cool if by chance someone local ends up with something of mine and in turn opens the door for them to get excited about clothing like I experienced a decade ago.
I want to also add that the idea of having different blue jeans e.g. slim fit, wide cut, high rise, etc. is sort of odd the more I think about it. Why do I need to try different styles because its the flavor of the month when I already own a pair that fits me perfectly. Why complicate things? Someone has been mentioning a website where you can create your perfect fitting jeans, I think that is cool if you can nail it. Is it because DWW wrote a post about fuller fits come back into fashion or the general romanticization of old that suddenly compels a need? I think all that is great but this goes back to my OP about appreciating something versus a wanting. I can appreciate the history DWW writes about and the imagery, that's not going to change whether I own something or not.
@the shah Why 2022? what do you know that we don't?
