You have to have a very particular look to pull these off. That look isn't yours.

Between my own experiences and some things I've heard both from friends and on SF, it's just not worth it to me.

Ed, are you familiar with different areas in Korea? I've had a guy offer me a reasonable shipping amount but want to make sure he's in a decent area.

Think you'd be able to help?

Yes
But I don't think the "area" he is in really matters
I'd read up on what kind of protection you can get on your end and that'd be the most important thing
But run it by me anyway

Speaking of selling clothes, I am currently in the process of selling a bunch of clothes that I don't wear anymore (~70% of my wardrobe). It feels great to get rid of a lot of junk and refocus on a smaller, but better wardrobe.

That's just going off the one or two pictures I've seen.

And glasses are very dependent on the person. I think Clubmasters are cool but they just don't work for my face.

If its any consolation, I don't think you're missing out on much by not getting those circular ones.

Did you look at the Cockpit model?

i own a pair of clubmasters (which i got on sale for $40!) and they're my most comfortable pair of shades and the ones i get the most compliments on, by far. i love those things.

i checked out the cockpit model, but ultimately, they're too similar to aviators (which i own) for me to want to get a pair.

and i think you're probably right about not missing out too much. i aint johnny depp, who am i kidding

I'm setting up 30 day BIN listings on ebay and offering everything at market value, but I am accepting offers. Usually, if it's ~20% of what I am asking, I'll accept the offer. If certain things don't sell within the 30 day period, I'll donate them.

Once this is all said and done, I should have enough money to buy a few nice things.

Does he have large feet?

CPs are Italian leather sneakers. I got a pair for a steal but they were the wrong size. The ones I'm selling are the mid-height in very dark brown (picture is black).

i hate common projects. they were SUPER popular about 4 years ago. i had a pair of bright red ones. nice quality actually, but they were definitely a trend and frankly i just feel like i look stupid in sneakers.

I got them out of curiosity, knowing that I could flip them for what I paid if I didn't like them.

They're nice, but horribly overpriced.

This is also another situation where NYC is much different than the rest of the country. In the last five years, I've seen only a handful of CPs in the Midwest.
