    A nice suit today. Recent Zegna Summer Trofeo suit made of mohair, wool and silk. My 42R size, but sadly the pants won't let out enough so probably available:

    Big ups to Coach @SpooPoker for the estate sale lowdown and etiquette. This was my first.

    I'm a smart guy and woke up with 2 hours of sleep at 7am the morning of with a massive hangover due to very very poor decisions the previous night, but I kept truckin.

    Ended up going today as well to pick up a few other things on the cheap.

    To all the estate sale veterans.. you guys would have been quite proud of my heaping pile of pre-sort swag I was able to build up. This one's for you:


    RL Home. All made in Italy. Did NOT pay those listed prices.. haha!

    This isn't great advice to follow. Classic Burberry's trenches still do relatively well and IMO are an excellent product. If it's in good shape with belt, liner and made in England you should be able to get $100 US without breaking a sweat and $200+ isn't out of the question.

    Yes, people love the Nova Check and finding those are like printing money but Burberry still has a big following. If it's thrift price, there's not much I would leave.

    And finally it is usually the polos that fetch the least because they aren't all that expensive new. Most used polos end around 20 to 50 from my experience.

    Keep in mind, I'm not a seller, just avid eBay lurker so your mileage may vary

    @spruce yes, I meant to respond to that statement about not picking up stuff just because it has the old Burberry label. Still plenty of great stuff that is older.

    Hmm ok thanks for the feedback guys, still learning the ropes. Will definitely keep a sharper eye out but I guess the only older Burberry stuff I've ran across are sport coats that are not great quality which did not appear to do too well when I looked at closed listings.

    They made the switch from Burberry's to Burberry London (with a blue label) in like 99 and as a results the problem with Burberry's blazers/suits is they are dated. I know some people here can do well with them but as you've seen from sold listings it's generally a good idea to pass, especially while you learn what's licensed and what not. But other items like jackets, dress shirts, etc keep an eye out for

    And hey 500th post :)

    There's something about tuxedo bear that just makes you smile lol

    Old Burberry Blazers with metal knight logo buttons I usually kop if cheap just to harvest and resell the button, those always do well and turn quickly
