    It was made by a company called Van Cort and I would give you $12 for it and double your money. :D

    It is civilian though, not actually affiliated with the military.

    Wow! Didn't know it was that nice! I've heard the name but never looked into it.

    I think there was talk about the Bobby Jones Made in Italy being worth picking up. I've seen like two of these pieces, both made in China/Hong Kong/wherever and I passed... didn't look special to me.

    That is my size though and I don't own any cardigans... hook me up Noobizor :D
    (assuming it doesn't have awful stretching in the shoulders from being mistreated on a hanger)

    Is it a cardigan? If it was large I would have taken it off your hands :D

    I'm not sure what the BJ deal is, either. A couple days ago, I found a polo shirt with the apparently coveted emblematic golfers on the placket and picked it up. It's mercurized cotton and made in Italy and my size--looked like it would come in handy come the hot weather. I also have a nice BJ cardigan wool sweater, made in Hong Kong, IIRC (it's stored in the upstairs cedar chest). But I hadn't thought this label would be worth much. Kind of like old JAB--they made some really fine things twenty or so years ago, but it's all worthless on the secondary market due to what the label has become.

    It's a golfy-type sweater, and I think it's a vest. :laugh:

    Color is nice, buttons are nice, but they say Bobby Jones! all over them. I did not grab it.

    I've been passing up the made in Italy polos, which kind of pisses me off. We'll have to watch Brianpore's sale thread and see what happens. :D

    I am doing a large consignment of New Old Stock, Made in Italy Polos and the quality is very nice. Don't know anything about the "flippability" of BJ on ebay or anything besides the NWT Made in Italy, but they seem to have a following from the people who bought them from me. Most know exactly what they are looking for and buy a few shirts at the same time.

    What you find in the stores is going to be different from what I have just for the fact I have them in the plastic wrappers folded from the factory in a TON of colors and patterns in L, XL and 2XL. I think you'll be able to flip them for $20? maybe, but I have seen them at the stores and leave them behind. Just not worth it imo.

    For some reason this is stuck in my head. But I think you only have two options for selling on Etsy.

    (1) If you make it yourself,
    (2) If it's vintage.

    I may be wrong.
