Jompso...a lot of win there. Any 44R slim fit or 42R in that bunch?
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)
THIS ^^^^ and especially
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.
Maus and Hoffman Crocodile tassel loafers
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.
Edwin x Margaret Howell and RRL tan jeans/chinos. RRL NA for now.
Hacket moleskin blazer 38r
Versace tie. Legit? @SpooPoker
More ties, nothing amazing
11.5? DAMN! PM sent!
Details? I'm on the lookout for a summer suit for my son's First Communion next spring.
Anyone recognize this?

Ah thank you! I have never heard of this is it worthwhile? The bay has some mixed results
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.
it's not not true thrift unfortunately or I would be all over it, it's a nice overcoat
