Question to my Readers
Sometimes I have stuff that doesn’t sell in brick and mortar stores but isn’t appropriate for my online vintage store, (think mid-range stuff, land’s end ties, j.crew shirts, etc…) If I were to put these up “flash sale” style on the cheap ($10/thing or so) would there be interest? Or should I just put it eBay?
Trying to price some vintage tie clips but prices on Etsy range from $5 to $100.
What would you pay for a plain vintage tie clip? for a more embellished one?
Where you’re on track to make a low-level professional salary buying and selling clothes and realize you work in menswear without the hashtag.
Sometimes I think the last 3 years of my feed are “spot the #menswear blogger”.
I bought 3 pairs of chinos yesterday.

What’s up followers?
I’ve been pretty half-assed around here these days haven’t I?
No no, you don’t have to make me feel better* it’s true.
It’s mostly been finishing grad school, which I emailed my final paper for on Monday. Also, this spring was like 30 degrees every day until last Friday, so I’ve been kind of cobbling together weird hybrid outfits that are strange, somewhat arbitrary combinations that don’t necessarily need to be on the blogo-nets. Oh, and the dog, she takes up some time.
Basically, I’m not dead, and I have lots of ideas I haven’t had time to actualize. So in the next few weeks prepare for some stuff!
—A guide to consignment and selling clothes for fun and profit (not that much profit, but still).
—A pseudo-history of Dexter, shoemaker to America.
—Probably some rants about what the kids today are wearing and how much better it was in my day**
—My unique brand of “pretending to be not-super influenced by #menswear but still posting WIWT on the internet” personal style.
Hopefully you’re still marginally interested. I like to think I am
*I’m just kidding, nobody’s ever made anyone feel better on the internet.
**Extra just kidding, “my day” would probably be the early ‘90’s, and nothing was better then (except the Wu-Tang Clan).
If you’re a size 43, this is your last chance to pick up at Brooks Bros seersucker suit for less than $100 before the Kentucky Derby. Just saying.
Too early for patchwork madras pants?
It has GOT to stay like spring today. right? RIGHT?!
