That's an ad.

There are three of these resale places advertising on late-night TV right now.  It must be the hot new thing.  And they never fail to mention that it's good for the environment when they recycle their old clothes.
Of course what would akshully save the environment is if you never bought that crap in the first place, and never wanted it.  But sure, you're doing about as much good as if you recycled your butter pat from the four-course steak dinner you had the night before.

I don't understand reselling websites as businesses when it's so stupidly-easy to sell your own stuff online wherever you'd like. They all seem to make you cough up a massive % of revenue for minimal convenience.

I'm not a brand name whore so I just don't get moist over "Chanel, Gucci, Hermes, etc".

Someone tell me if I'm wrong but aren't most of those things made by almost slave labor who are paid pennies by the hour and then sold for outrageously astronomical prices? I just don't think that's right.

We're talking luxury resale here. You think some trophy wife is going to be bothered to sell her own Hermès bag collection? Please. It's all part of the status. Let the website deal with the plebes buying her hand-me-downs.

This stuff is all widely counterfeited, so I assume the resellers actually get and hold the item and provide some assurance that it's genuine. That trust can be worth a lot, so I can believe even after reseller costs, sellers get more money and buyers are less worried about sending some stranger $800 for a used purse.

My wife sells her shiat through these places.  I think for her it's a form of money laundering.  I buy her expensive name-brand crap , she sells it for 40% of retail, and then she keeps the proceeds.


Why yes, I AM an idiot.

She's trying to have plausible deniability that she gets money from you?  I don't follow the laundering angle.

The Rolex story reminds me a bit of Mercedes.  The luxury angle used to be that they were well-designed, well constructed, precisely engineered, and very very difficult to destroy.  In the 50's, a brand new Rolex would cost you $150, or around $1500 give or take in today's money.  Mercedes cars were expensive, but they were plush or luxurious... they sold on craftsmanship and durability, with interiors that were often almost spartan in appearance.

Japan basically ruined that. Once you could get a Seiko mechanical watch that matched the craftsmanship of a Swiss movement, or a Timex that would beat the precision with quartz crystals, where does that leave Rolex?  If you're comparing your Mercedes to whatever junk got crapped out of Detroit, it had a niche. When you could get a Camry that will outlast cockroaches for the price of a Chevrolet, what's the appeal of a German car?

Artificial exclusivity is the only way out of that corner.

Compare a high mileage Mercedes to a Camry or a Lexus.  It's true that the newer C-Class models are getting a bit pedestrian but anything built in Stuttgart/Sindelfingen is worth it.

It'll cost a bit more due to the risk of parts breakage and the massive difference in parts costs, but overall, yes.

A lot of luxury items go up in value after you buy them. I've noticed 30 year old rolex watches with no authenticity papers or box selling for a few $1,000 more than the brand new ones. A "lightly used " one (within a year and box and papers, meaning the guy just bought it to flip it online) can fetch $7-8,000 more than a brand new one. Purses and shoes are the same. Reason is a lot of things like that are only sold in person (you can't go to the Rolex or Patek Philippe website and buy a new watch, you gotta go to a store, and a lot of people that want one don't live near a store. Then the fact that after you decide what model you want, there may be a 9-18 month waiting list because those kind of companies intentionally limit production to drive up demand and prices. I don't know much about the high end purse industry, but high end watches are definitely not being mass produced in an Asian sweatshop.
