I was compelled to share this. Another resource for pre-owned (new word for used) clothing.
"Founded in 2004 eDrop-Off has become the nation's premier eBay store specializing in reselling high end and luxury items. With over 100,000 successful transactions, eDrop-Off has reached Titanium Power Seller status on eBay. If you are looking to consign your designer clothing, handbags, shoes, jewelry or accessories, we're here to help! We cater to clients both locally and nationwide offering free pickups, closet consultations, styling and more."
Check them out here or on eBay here (men's shoes, clothing, and accessories links are on the left side).
"The whole thing of clothes is isane. You can spend a dollar on a jacket in a thrift store. And you can spend a thousand dollars on a jacket in a shop. And if you saw those two jackets walking down the street, you probably wouldn't know which was which."
I thought about purchasing another pair of prescription glasses, since my first experience was decent I decided to try Warby Parker again. This time the home try-on was available.
You can try up to five pairs for 5 days.
The Griffin in Greystone
The Roosevelt Striped Chestnut
The Finn inSandalwood Matte
My Favorite pair was the "Miles" shown here in Revolver Black
The Preston in Sandalwood Matte
My favorites in order started from the bottom, including the Nedwin's that I bought previously.
Shipping is free both ways for the home try-on and they arrive in about 3 business days. If a frame that you want to try is unavailable you try a different colorway (i.e. Miles in Black instead of Chesnut) and they may be available so you can get an idea of how they will look.
The concept is great, it really takes the surprises out of internet shopping.
This is very clear and straight forward until you get to the "Other Cost" section. Check out the article and you'll see that about half of price of these $300+ jeans is in the retailer markup, yeah I know they could end up on the sale racks, so why not start the negotiation with a high-ball offer...I guess...
Stick to thrifting (thrift shops, consignment shops, clothing resellers, ebay...) and you can skip the "Other Cost" and end up paying only for the materials, or the labor and it's possible to pay just for the trim and get the whole pair of jeans!
