    Someone bought a cashmere brioni coat off me a while ago that's had stains and pretty noticeable damage and then listed it as excellent condition for 400, didn't disclose any of the damage

    wowniceshirt has done that to me like 3 times with dress shirts. I have them priced less because of condition, faded or stained, I think it was a RLPL and 2 Brionis, probably sold all 3 for around 30 bucks each. Saw them relisted a week later at just shy of $90 bucks in barely worn/excellent used condition. On an unrelated note, I was actually able to find out wowniceshirts source for their entire suits and blazers inventory, if I only had the capital... I'd also need to get a Rosetta Stone cuz it all comes from a country in Europe.

    Probably. I just refuse to ever sell women's stuff. Half of the defects I've ever gotten were selling women's clothes or shoes and I've sold very little of it. Probably just bad luck, but I don't care. Y'all can come to my city and have all of it.

    Unless you are not only extremely knowledgable about women's clothing but you also make an effort to stay up to date with trends and know what wont and will sell even if it's the same brand, it's completely a waste of time. Women's fashion sucks, they're fickle, unpredictable, have no true classic sense of style, and will take what a tag says over an actual quality piece of clothing 10 times of 10. It's not bad luck, it's them. I can't begin with what I've acquired as far as women's clothing and shoes are concerned, but it's ridiculous, but I will never post it in my store ever, just do not want to deal with them...So I'm stuck with this ridiculous inventory that I don't know what to do with.

    I always wondered where the hell he was getting his items, since he's in a small town not too far from me and I certainly don't consistently find the same sort of stuff.

    Been going there for years and this is the first time I've ever seen it there. There were several other sport coats as well, probably a few more suits. Too expensive to flip. Unfortunately I had to pass on 3 Attolini ties because of price/condition. I made up for it, though. A couple of cherry pops - including a Hermes tie which was the first I've seen at an outlet.
