    No, life has been too hectic, partying is really cutting though my shopping time.

    I mean, who isn't trying to get back what they paid for an item that didn't work out?

    "Hey, just trying to get less than what I put out for this item, thanks."

    Now THAT"D be fucking weird

    Sounds rough, boss. Good luck getting your life back on track. :laugh:

    I'd be interested to hear what you end up with.

    I want to say Fiorentini + Baker side-zips start in the $400 - $450 range, so they'd probably be pretty cheap if you can find them on sale. I don't think they're particularly sleek, though, if that's important to you.

    I understand that there're buying motivations that go beyond logic. When I list items I've bought that didn't work out, generally I DO price it lower than I bought it, and I DO chalk it up to the cost of the original gamble. But I don't think buyers should feel like they're getting ripped off if I sell for full cost of what I bought it for, especially if it's a sale item / no longer available.

    I don't have the data to back it up, but I'm 99% sure there is data out there that shows buyers (in general, not SF) are more likely to buy if they think the seller is taking a loss. Some people will waffle on a $200 purchase but pounce if they're granted a nominal discount. It makes people feel like they're getting a bargain.

    Should mention I've never studied econ or anything so excuse me if I'm stating basic principles here.

    It's not the concept of the seller taking a hit, it's basics of supply and demand - buyer commitment rises with rarity

    I'm going to go ahead and assume that the 20 unread pages in the sales alerts thread is people asking for tbs codes and whether or not they stack.

    I find using intellectual disabilities as insults to be distasteful.

    whatever123 is an idiot but i'm sure you can find better ways to express this than bringing in vulnerable members of the community who are already widely discriminated against.

    cue standard anti-PC brigade...

    Probably. That's all I saw last time I looked.

    I've actually never bought anything from either TBS or Mr. Porter. But around here everyone seems to wet their pants over every little sale or coupon at these two places. Reminds me of the first time Gilt offered DRKSHDW and Silent pieces. Suddenly Recent Purchases is overflowing with the stuff. It was as if a giant dump truck had appeared, dumped its load, and everyone came to feed.

    Trying to locate a slim white OCBD before I head to London, want one that I can tuck in. Can't find a basic TB anywhere, or i'd prolly just get that. Considering a Ervell ash white standard club collar.

    Any suggestions?

    Gitman are pretty inexpensive and long enough to tuck, as long as you're not too tall. The fabric isn't bad either, but the collar roll is kind of weak.
