    Clothing anyone?

    I know it is not as exciting as actual trinkets and items, but I've been looking at clothing for the last few weeks for nice and new or interesting pieces.

    In the last two days, I found a few good items (Tommy Bahama, Orvis, Armani Ex, Patagonia), but 4 were really nice.

    Burberry dress shirt
    Robert Graham dress shirt
    Paul & Shark 1/4 zip sweater
    Howie Day (musician) signed concert t-shirt (looked like a scribble, but I did a double take and some research and it looks legit. It is not worth the cost of authentication or anything, but I thought it was a cool find.

    I think the first three items retail new for $700 total. Might get $150 in total on ebay (all in great shape, Paul & Shark a little more worn but other two look perfect). Total cost $15.

    I would never spend that kind of money (even the pre-owned eBay prices haha), but holding the shirts in person, you can see the quality of material and work that goes into them.

    I don't spend a whole lot of time searching for clothing but if it's there and the price is right I'll snatch it up and turn it for a quick profit. I keep my eyes open for designer jeans, vintage Levi, wool hunting clothes (it's here in the Adirondack Mountains), and I don't know if any of you guys have ever searched Ebay for vintage Rock and roll T-shirts but they bring big money, like into the hundreds of dollars.

    I have found a few t shirts in the past but nothing too exciting. Most recently was an Andy Irons Pipe Masters t shirt. I have some 1982-83 Miami Dolphin Superbowl & Championship t shirts that I've been holding on to. If they ever have a winning season, i'll sell them lol. Bunch of fair weather fans they are.

    I guess I'm amazed that people who can afford to spend $150 on 4 USED shirts would do their shopping on Ebay. Good score I think. I wouldn't have a clue what to look for but 99% of my shirts don't have buttons... LoL.. Back when I had my own auto repair shop I would buy trash bags full of T-shirts at the Salvation Army for $4 a bag to use for rags and it never failed that I would find a couple to keep & wear..

    One thrift store I go to sells clothes at decent prices. I've bought quite a bit of quality clothing from them that still had tags, not for resale, but to wear. I found a couple of County Seat long sleeve shirts (with tags) for $3 each, probably could have turned a good profit, but they sure kept me warm this winter.

    Yeah, I can't believe how nice some of the shirts are-- lots still have tags. I've found many nice $100+ new or ''new-ish'' shirts for myself for $1-4. I'd rather keep those for myself and save $ than sell them for $20 and make $10 after fees, etc. Bunch of nice Ralph Lauren blue tag shirts, etc.

    There are certainly some crappy ones in there, but even after looking for 3 or so weeks now, I still get amazed on some of them.

    The t-shirts seem to be more 'used' than dress shirts. Haven't found much for T-shirts, except for a new Armani Exchange one and maybe one or two promotional ones.

    Reselling clothing is a whole new game. It is also an area I do not wish to venture into, personally. Congrats to those who found some nice scores.

    I collect Pepsi & Budweiser. We went to a sale in Alpena Mich. and there was a bunch of Budweiser clothes in brand new condition. The girl having the sale said her boyfriend worked for A/B at one time. I got two driver coats for $2.00 each, 2 pair of pants for a buck each and 3 pair of shorts for 1/2 a buck each. Brand spankin' new! I wear the driver coats daily up here in the frozen north. Normally I do not look at clothes at all.
    Set your goals High, but your discrimination Low to achieve your desired success.

    I took a tip from a guy about clothing. So the next time I went to the thrift got a few items he said sells great for him. 3 weeks later still in the closet and 3 views per listing term lol. And of course we wear 2x and these are all large to xlarge.

    But I see a guy in the store I go to same guy in all. He will run around from rack to rack filling carts of nice ckothes that he resells on eBay and flea markets. So it is possible to make money doing it.

    Maybe he lied so you wont compete, threw you off to buy stuff that will not sell while he gets the goods?

    Oh, you can definitely make money from it. One of the gals that frequents this board does pretty good with clothes. Poly mailers make shipping easy too.

    Half of my business is clothing. I look for vintage pieces--especially the 1960s & 1970s disco, hippie, etc. Generally, I pay around $3 to $6 per item and list no less than $29.99--it is not big bucks, but they do sell. Keeps me running at $500 a month--vacation $$$ at a nice resort! apush

    I have a friend who is a multi-millionaire, and he buys almost all of his clothes from ebay. He loves high end golf shirts, and generally picks them up for $10 to $20 each.

    His philosophy is that money saved is money earned, and he does look good in those new and lightly used clothes. You'd never guess that most of them were bought second hand!

    Good finds! Yes, there is money in clothing.

    I get a lot of name brand stuff at Good Will in perfect condition and turn around and take it to that upscale consignment shop. I've made some good money there. I do it there rather than Ebay because I can't be bothered with the pictures, shipping, etc. I just give in the stuff and pick up my check.
