    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I've picked up a few recent Hugo Boss SC's. The more recent ones moved from the canvas size tags to the black computer printed "newer" looking size tags. I thought the once I've picked up had pretty nice fabric and patterns, and one of them has become a staple in my wardrobe.

    Now he can't claim he is so poor he doesn't have a pot to piss in anymore.

    This is the tag off one of my SC's, which I assume is newer. I guess I'm not positive that all newer ones look like this, because this one doesn't have a model name (einstein, rossellini, etc). And I lied... its white not black.

    EDIT: I guess it does have a model name. I never saw the Pasolini at the bottom.

    THIS is exactly my problem. My brother's coming to visit in two weeks and our second bedroom is full of ties, sportcoats, trousers and shoes. My wife is away this weekend, so I might have a listing day on Sunday.

    If youse guys will permit an ebay question: Is there anything wrong with creating a second ebay account (or can it be done?)? I know I'd lose all the feedback on my current one (I guess I could just say in the posting, "This is me, it's just my other account. Bid with confidence!"), but I keep hitting the you've-tried-to-sell-too-many-X limits, and it's annoying. I don't sell enough to go the store route.

    This is the same tag that was on a HB suit I sold recently that was uber, uber recent (single breast with peak lapel, dual vent, flat front).

    What are these "you tried to sell too many X limits? I would imagine its not kosher to start a new ebay account to bypass some restriction...

    How many things have you sold? It looks like only a few. I don't understand why you ge those crazy limits...perhaps you are very very limited in the beginning these days. Did you try calling customer service? I had some limits listed on ties a while back, but my limit was like 10 or 15. Of course I already had nearly 1000 feedback.

    For the first 90 days you're limited to 25 items listed in any 30 day moving window in some categories, one of which is men's clothing. It's a pain. They won't even talk to you about it for the first 60 days.

    It doesn't look like he has even listed that much yet. That has to be frustrating.

    Yeah, I think this is my issue. But I've been on ebay since 2007 and have been selling for more than 90 days, so maybe it also has to do with feedback. I think ebay also got pissed about the Chanel tie and has decided it hates me. I think the only limit I have right now has to do with ties, but who knows what else I'll run into this weekend (I have a lot of stuff to post). I guess the easiest solution is to go into the B&S megathread business so many of you have embraced.

    But I apologize for ebaying-up this thread. I did find something yesterday, though there are no pics. BB Golden Fleece shirt, 15.5/32, in an attractive blue and brown thin stripe with contrast collar. French cuff.

    I had to pass on a tux that fit that I was sure was a Canali because of a bit of fraying on the pants. I also kept finding Pink and Vineyard Vines shirts with frayed collar points. It was a frustrating day yesterday.


    This is what I keep getting:

    And thus consigners were born. I'm right on the cusp of throwing my hands up and going that route....

    This x 10000000000000.



    In the next few days I'll be having a "keep Vexco out of jail" sale, tho. Hopefully I can move most of what I have and raise enough money. [​IMG]

    It sucks because it counts relisting the item too.

    This is fair. I was more just typing it out as motivation for myself to get off my ass and sell things
