    Never considered it, or knew of it. However I despise Fed Ex and UPS's prices. Plus I have attempted to set up UPS accounts on numerous occasions with no luck, always some sort of technilogical road block.

    Spoo,
    The picture of the coat itself didn't turn out but, based on the labels, should it flip well. Its a white/black houndstooth ventless jacket. The condition seemed pretty good. Not thrift prices, but not outrageous. Any idea who the maker is?

    always? when you are chucking a deuce, are you on the look out for a new tie? when you're grabbing a chalupa at taco bell, are you on the look out for a new tie? what about when you're on an airplane or on a boat or in a box? you're like an incredibly boring version of the milf hunter.

    Versace doesn't have makers prior to its recent Zegna collabos of the past few years. Everything was made by their own factories, either Bavers or Inco from this time frame. Inco was the higher level of the two - not really anything noteworthy to add to an eBay title. Just some clothing nerd stuff. This jacket you have, is a Spring Summer 1993 collection, likely orphan. Based on the fact that its 20 years old and ventless, plus a really big size - my guess is a high gorged hard 3 button as well, you're looking at $40 max.

    Cool, thanks!

    Thoughts on whether it's worth having them re-heeled by a cobbler before flipping?

    Depends on what you paid. A heel job around here cost between 10-20 bucks. They might sell for that much more with new heels, but you will probably not wind up with the signature Alden heel look. If yuo can get heels like those they will probably run a bit more.
