    Some are just sized on a normal scale so measurements would be needed but out of what's tagged I believe there's a 44L but I didn't check them all so I'll look through

    I have never found any of the Suzuki line Woolrich. But, I have had good luck with the vintage 100% wool Made in USA stuff. It's not as $ as finding perfect Pendleton, but excellent like new stuff has been profitable.

    There are a lot of things that when I first got started in this, I bought because I thought they were going to be great profit finds. Obviously we all learn from experience and I'm sure we all got burned on some things early on that we bought before we knew better!

    I'm curious about what other people bought thinking they were thrift gold and later learned they are NOT.

    I'll start by admitting some of my mistakes:

    Tommy Bahama (I think a lot of folks got burned on this)
    Anything with a problem that I thought was not a big deal (holes, missing buttons, etc)
    Woolrich stuff that is not 100% wool or made in India, China, etc
    Lots of different tie brands that I discovered are worth nothing unless it's for personal use
    Something that I bought just because it's Cashmere
    Lots of various designer Diffusion stuff
    90's Armani stuff that is nothing special
    Shoes with damage
    NWT Department store brands because if it's NWT I could still make good money (Wrong)
    Stuff I just liked and thought others would agree
    Nike Polos (I have a ton of these because I thought I thought they were big money)

    Me, too. Sort of. I have sold more in the the first 15 days of this month than all of last month. AND I'm hoping it will continue until Christmas! I have also listed more things.

    Today's stuff:

    My favourite, 1973 off Row bespoke overcoat with astrakhan collar, 24 p2p so 42-44 . Not 100% sure on the fabric but could well be cashmere.

    I'm not sure about the resale value but at true thrift I'd kop and find out. Seems like there's a weird UK party-boy following.
