Colin at Our Legacy has always been really nice over email (i think he's Scottish and we have similar surnames so maybe it's a tribal thing) and after i emailed him he managed to find one of those blue tunics and the paper sweat in a Swedish store and then set them up for me to buy through the site :woop:

I hope they fit. It feels good though cos i realised that the shitty stuff i bought from Zara and H&M i sent back pretty much paid for both of them. Or maybe more like 1.5 of them. But i still know what i'd rather have...

Sad news though cos i realised i slept too long on those Camper sandals :((((((( they gone

i bought an item on grailed, it arrived, and did not fit me. It's a nice designer piece, in pretty good condition- something I would definitely keep if it was the right size. I went and listed it back on Grailed for roughly same price I paid. The first offer I got was a lowball offer (less than half of what I listed it for). I knocked down my price by $15 and offered him that deal. He responded with:

"Well it is still a used item.. The more it changes hands the more the value drops."

what do you guys think? Does an item lose value just because it changes hands, even if it doesn't get any more wear? How do you define the value of a used garment?

definitely not, that's some manipulative bullshit.

A garment is still a garment, no matter how many times it's changed hands. especially if it wasnt even worn after being sold!

I agree with ramdom for the most part

whether or not the garment changes hands doesn't need to matter.

"the person who holds the garment sets the value. if another person comes up with criteria that causes the value to be below the seller's value, then clearly the person won't sell it"

even if you bought into/agreed with his statement knocking $15 off asking price is more than fair for whatever "wear" you put onto it. at that point he's just being cheap

@oradek

tonight for me, it was a slew of:

"oh my god" amazed-reaction from a girl with a date heading to the escalator (some townie suburban folks)
"you wear some crazy outfit bro"
"nice shorts!" (you know it)
"jackie chan!" -- obligatory

and the other night with the same shit

"... oOOoO i like them short shorts, you've got nice legs" (thanks!)

To kinda continur the topic from last page - do you guys engage in reselling things a lot? I'd imagine those with higher wardrobe turnover do but what about purely buying in order to make a profit? If you snag an item for cheap is it appropriate to resell at "real" price, etc.

Definitely done that before. I don't think there's necessarily anything wrong with it as long as you're not shuffling things around within a community like this one. Buying from one user and reselling to another is a nono, because it's a community built on trust. But buying, say, Alden Indy's on SuFu and reselling for a higher price on SF is just basically profiting off of market inefficiencies. I've definitely bought stuff from eBay before and resold on fashion websites because the eBay seller just did not know what they had (copped a Supreme backpack and Dogs and Ducks jacket, as well as a penfield, for something like $200 shipped total, which is fucking ridiculous. Sold the Penfield and backpack for 50% and 100% profit, so I basically got the Dogs and Ducks for free)

EDIT: Ok, bad example. I'm just saying there's nothing wrong with shuffling things that are not visible in one market to another. I've definitely proxied things for a loss before, and sold thrift store finds for a huge profit. I'm no altruist, but I'm not an asshole either. I always sell at the fair price.

I would feel awful about picking something up only to resell it for more. I would rather let someone who would wear it/like it buy it for cheap in the first place.

I sell stuff fairly often and I think I've only made a profit two times. But I've never got something for the express purpose of reselling it.

What about if you bought something for cheap, with the intention of keeping it, but it didn't fit or you didn't like it. So you decide to sell it, but you bought it for less than its actual value. Do you sell it for the price that you bought, or for what you think it's actual value is?

if you have the market acumen to resell things for profit i don't see anything wrong with that, you're being rewarded for a skill set like any other trade. I don't troll forums B+S but I've bought stuff on consignment and yoox bc I knew I could easily flip it for profit.

buying stuff from thrift shops, irl consignments or tkmaxx and flipping them online for a profit that's a service, i'd even say buying stuff off yoox/rak with dodgy pictures which requires dealing with import handling and proxies, re-photographing and providing accurate measurements is a service also. but when you're selling me what i saw 2 weeks ago on another forum or western online retailer/auction site for an additional charge and asking me to pay the paypal fees you can fuck right off. the people operating in those circles and looking to buy from places like sufu or sf are the sorts already browsing every community driven marketplace, to act like your providing a service for selling it under a different username is silly.

Very fair point. What about if said person wouldn't see it in the first place?

For me, if I know exactly which person I'd pass it along to, I'd sell it to them for at cost, or even a loss. If not, I sell at market price.

I do this all the time for people when I see uber awesome Levi's Truckers at my local outlet (my local one seems to get a ton of interesting make-ups) and I've seen people hunting around for similar jackets before
