    Why do you need pockets? Are you a butler?

    If you put your phone and wallet in your chest pockets you will cut down the bulk bigly

    Hey I'd like to get your guys' opinions on styling overcoats with these sneakers:

    [​IMG]

    So far my top style candidates are:

    1) Something similar in texture/fit of Engineered Garment's Chester Coat:

    [​IMG][​IMG]



    2) Sleek, minimalist silhouettes of APC/Our Legacy/Acne Studios etc. That kind of coat:

    [​IMG]


    I'm leaning towards the former styles as it seems like the latter types may clash with the sporty/technical style of the shoes. Does anyone have any recommendations for me? Ideally I'd like something similar in texture to wool and isn't uniformly colored. It seems like fast fashion brands, e.g. Zara, Urban Outfitters, etc, have coats in the style I'm looking for but from what I've read, their coats are of low-mid quality.

    Grailed is designed to generate sales; volume makes them money. They'd rather have 100 sales for $50, every policy is designed to create a sale, at any price

    Looking back at my trip last month, i spent over 100$ on incense most of which is kumba. Great for when they dont have XL tall boy size, at least you can kop the smell.

    Really want to put a couple of jackets up for sale, including a TOJ moto, but anecdotes like this always give me pause.

    Anybody got opinions on if a consignment shop is a viable option? I know the average shop will surely take a cut but would going consignment help avoid all the lowballs, or would it be the same as a lowball once the store takes its cut?

    Damn StyleForum. Every time I see someone use DT for Donald Trump on Twitter, I just read "Dumb Threads."

    On the other side of the coin, it's also annoying when people ask for way too much for things. There are a couple of Frozen Waves knits up for sale that I'd be interested in if the sellers weren't asking >50% of retail for a five-year old used item. I see a lot of ridiculous shipping quotes, too.

    someone more versed in the science of economics please correct me if i'm wrong, but grailed is a market place just like any other and as such prices generally reflect the laws of supply and demand - if we find that our item isn't selling at a certain price, then the market is telling us that the price is too high.

    i'm equally as frustrated with several of my experiences, but when i think of the alternative - selling at buffalo or consignment - i realize i'll still likely make more on grailed than i would at either of those locations because at least with grailed i'm reaching the target audience (w/ exception of major cities like nyc, la, sf, etc. where consignment will def reach other fashun people...def not here in DC!) which affords me a relatively higher price.

    in my own recent online selling experience, i offloaded a pit-stained Supreme raekwon/elmo t shirt for ~$200 (cost me $30 at the time) but I can't sell an AKOG button up for $45 (cost me ~$200 at retail). just depends on the demand..shit is frustrating, i know...

    I use a consignor (who happens to be a Styleforum member) and it's really nice. I simply ship a big box of stuff to him and a couple months later I get a nice check.

    Obviously they get a sizable cut, but they handle all the measurements, photos, questions, haggling, shipping, eBay fees, etc. I've been impressed with the final prices—usually more than I would have been able to get were I to sell things myself. Recommended if you haven't tried it and hate selling stuff.
