    Also a noob, but I generally look at similar items on eBay and filter on "completed listings" so I see what things actually sell for. I've found that to be pretty good. Also checking etsy, etc.
    BTW, questions about selling are generally posted in this thread (assuming you're using eBay): http://www.styleforum.net/t/309281/buying-and-selling-on-ebay-tips-tricks-problems-questions

    Ok, great. Thanks! That's what I suspected but I've been getting some lowball offers and wondered if I was missing something. I'll check out that thread...

    Appreciate all the feedback/discussion on the $1k Kiton shirt. Excellent insight.

    Still, to this day, no shirt in my wardrobe fit me better than my Stafford Executive Non-Iron Cotton Pinpoint Oxford pictured below. Cheap price point, amazing fit for me personally, and a nice spread collar. Couldn't tell you the difference from this and some high end shirts I own. I can NEVER find these anymore. Yep, Stafford.

    This sale is HUGE. A lot of clothing, LOTS of shoes, and tons of stuff. Will post brag pics later. For now, just look at some of the pics of the sale itself. Sorry the pics are so bad between the I-phone, stormy weather, bad lighting and hurrying to take the pics, they aren't great.

    These pictures don't show half of the building.

    I didn't even take pictures of the 4 rooms full of clothing. There was so much there. I left with 3 large boxes and I will have to go back. There was so much there, it was a little overwhelming.

    Don't call the game just yet. I found only one tie. And in terms of sheer numbers, my post won't compete. But, there are some pretty brag worthy finds coming.

    Is 60 pictures too many?

    Hope Chanel is legit. Found on the men's pants rack. Jcrew is NWT linen/cotton. Polo is gren? I'm terrible at figuring that out. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
